Product description

Product Description

Hands of Glory is an eight track companion piece to his previous album 'Break It Yourself' (Bella Union). The latest album was inspired by Bird's recent "old-time" live sets; it was recorded with Bird's full band, all playing acoustic instruments, gathered around a single microphone in a church and a barn. Bird's live solo shows have been notable in that he uses a multi-track system to sample and loop his own performance. For example, he may record a snippet of his performance on violin, then play a "loop" of that sound. This provides a more full-bodied sound and aurally suggests a band performance, rather than the sound of a solo artist. Andrew Bird is a singer, a violinist and, since 2004, a guitarist, he is also an accomplished whistler. Trained by the Suzuki method from a young age and a graduate of Illinois' Northwestern University, Bird released his first solo album, Music of Hair, in 1996.
