Following a personal tragedy, brothers Chris and Tim James found solace in playing music together—Tim on guitar and Chris on drums. Now, ten years later, the brothers James have switched roles and recruited bassist Ryan Parmenter to create KG Bird. Since its inception, the three-piece recruited drummer Chris Park, allowing Tim to play rhythm guitar.
Pulling from legends like George Harrison, Silver Jews and Creedence Clearwater Revival, the four-piece creates lush Americana-tinged folk laden with experimentation. In mid-2013 KG Bird released its first offering, the ‘Morning Weather’ EP. The five-song collection illustrates Chris James’ skill for storytelling backed by intricate guitar leads, melodic riffs, and catchy lyrics while successfully bending standard structure and arrangement.
