***BIRD CITY REVOLUTIONARIES***:

The Bird City Sound blends positively charged lyrics with elements of Reggae, Dub,
Afrobeat, Latin, Funk, Psychedelic, and Surf into a danceable world beat sound.

Genesis and Growth:

Bird City was formed in October of 2011 by Julian Scott Bryan (Drums, Lead Vocals), Larry “Pocket” Thomas (Bass), and Jeremy Saude (Guitar, Dub FX). Being veteran band mates with each other in the Atlanta Reggae band I-tegrity and current members of Atlanta based Psychedelic/Atmospheric Dub band The Ruination, the three were already well acquainted with making music together.
After some writing and jamming, the three decided to enhance the vibe by calling on some old friends.
Danny “D-Lab” Labrador (Lead Guitar, Atmospherics) was a band mate of Bryan’s in the Atlanta Space Age Reggae outfit know as 3052 Dub Collective.
Next to in the sound-scape was the addition of Ruination band mate and keyboardist Julian Morena (Keys, Melodica, Atmospherics).
As the band began to explore more and more rhythmic compositions based in Afro-beat, Latin, and funk, the addition of percussion would prove to be inevitable. First call was Songwriter and 3052 band mate “Downtown” Eric Brown (Percussion, Dub FX, and Vocals).
With all these pieces in place the, all that was needed was the wind for this bird to take flight. Phil Floyd (Tenor Saxophone, Pocket Sax, Melodica, Bird Calls, percussion), leader of the Church Basement Band and former 3052 band mate, joined the group and without hesitation set the feathers aflame.

Revelations:
The majority of the world is asleep, eyes closed and unaware. Everyday our privacy and our rights are being secretly taken away. Pacified by gadgets and mentally divided, we are charmed by lies disguised in carefully orchestrated promise. We must awaken, like the thaw after the freeze. IN US ALL, A REVOLUTIONARY!!!
