From a homemade basement studio in Annapolis, Md., all the way to 1770 Records' 2016 "Band of the Year," Little Bird has worked its way into locals' hearts with their blend of surf rock, jazz, and Americana. So yeah, this crew has swanky dinner party jams and melodic date night tunes covered.
When they aren't coveting D'Allesandro's pies or Bagel Nation sammies, Little Bird is on tour spreading the gospel of Familiar, their April 1, 2018 release. You can also find the band on the mic at local events like the Elliotborough Block Party on Sat. May 19. ’Til then, find out a little more about members Oleg, Ben, James, and Jay in this week's Beat Juice.
