ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
REDBIRD is both the name of an album and a loose affiliation of three American songwriters that began to take shape during a common tour experience. In early 2003, KRIS DELMHORST, JEFFREY FOUCAULT, and PETER MULVEY did a run of shows together in England. Thanks to excellent routing, they found themselves with a few hours at a hotel every afternoon, and without fail they engaged in an off-the-cuff song circle. (Nighttime after gigs was reserved for poker.) Across the tour, they discovered musical affinity and a shared love of a fairly diverse spectrum of Americana.
It was a no-brainer to do a record, but in keeping with the spontaneous nature of their original sessions, they did it in a living room, around one microphone, in three days the following summer. What emerged is a love letter to the body of American song. The members enlisted the talents of multi-instrumentalist David "Goody" Goodrich, and became multi-instrumentalists themselves. The bulk of the record speaks from the common tongue of music: traditional tunes, old jazz standards, country songs, and things that blur the line between those forms. Kris and Peter also swapped covers, backed Jeffrey on one of his originals, and they all lent their instrumental skills to a Goodrich composition. There are also a handful of songs by contemporary writers who are well entangled in the great briar patch of this music.
Listen to Redbird and you will hear three American songwriters in the midst of a good solid attempt to catch the shine that comes from attending to the musical past in order to live in the musical present.

Tristan

A wonderful excursion through american songs
First off, let's look at this group of amazing folk artists: Peter Mulvey, Jeffrey Foucault, Kris Delmhorst, and don't forget David "Goody" Goodrich. On this album, the four of them just have fun playing songs together. There are no studio tricks, no overdubbing. It's just plain good folk.

Deep in the dream
Deep in the dream and in magical moments, when three musicians meet themselves and simply make music, real music together. no studio's microphones but a pure and naked musical project, much deeper than usual smooth recordings that people can find in cd... Please take your time and just listen to it : I hope you'll find that crystal atmosphere that I've found inside it!

Music to my ears
In a sea of musical noise, this cd is music to my ears. It continues in the tradition of all the folk music greats.

music to play on your deck
i just moved to a new house in bernal heights and, for the first time in my life, have a deck. this cd was the perfect one to put on while i was out in the lounge chair, looking out over san francisco.
