Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds
For nearly two decades, the Catskill Mountains hid rock ‘n’ soul's best kept secret. Then one day, singer and songwriter Arleigh Kincheloe said goodbye to her hometown hideaway and moved to New York City to start the hard soul collective, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds… “Our music is loud, fun, and it’s supposed to make you feel good,” she declares. “That’s the goal.”
In the years since, the group – her brother, Jackson Kincheloe (harmonica), Sasha Brown (guitar), Josh Myers (bass), Phil Rodriguez (trumpet), Brian Graham (saxophones) and Dan Boyden (drums) – teamed with producer ‘Randy Jackson’ for their debut EP, performed more than 700 shows and made their national TV debut on the Today show. They’ve released three full-length studio albums, including their most recent studio pass, the acclaimed “The Weather Below”.
Now, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds will finally appease its flock of devotees by releasing its first live album – “Fowl Play”. The album was recorded on New Year’s Eve before a raucous, sold-out crowd in Fairfield, Connecticut and was the beautiful, accidental result of an original New Year’s Eve plan gone awry. After losing their New Year’s Eve gig just weeks before the big night, the band made proverbial lemonade, securing an alternate venue at the last moment, packing the house, putting on their biggest party to date and recording it for the world to hear.
