1) A pseudonym of Kitayama Yuki (北山有紀, born December 9, 1975, Japan), one of Japan’s biggest names in jazz. Her fusion of jazz, R&B, bossa nova, swing and house has won her a fan-base all on her own. She began doing folk-type music in 2002, but after almost a year of hiatus, her single Warabigami was released. This time Bird went for a reggae feel. With her latest single SPARKLES, she has gone back to her jazz roots but has mixed in disco as well. In July 1999, her debut album was released and sold 700,000 copies. Bird was given the Japan Gold Record for newcomers. In October, her first national concert Bird Tour 1999 Live! was sold out. In June 2006 she teamed up with Kama Aina, RT, and Moose Hill to form the unit Tori (Japanese for “bird”). Sites: En.Wikipedia
2) A pseudonym of Janie Price, a classically trained British chamber pop singer-songwriter and cello player. Her début album was “The Insides” (2004, Ice Cream) and her latest is “Girl And A Cello” (22 Jun 2009, Music For Dreams). Price has also released two singles, as Bird: “Falling Like Stars” (2004, Ice Cream) and “Some Boys EP” (24 Aug 2009, Music For Dreams). Sites: Discogs
3) A trio from Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Since December 2008 Bird plays acoustic songs with a indie-folk character. Music to gaze by, melodies to dream away on or just simple; songs to drink a beer by. It all depends on the weather. Bird follows its own musical ambitions; Making records DIY style and playing at places where the music, in its most basic acoustic and storytelling form, still is appreciated. The music of Bird is often compared to Lou Barlow (Sebadoh), Bonnie Prince Billy and Blackheart Procession.
4) A minority naming of Thai male soloist Thongchai McIntyre, best known as เบิร์ด ธงไชย (aka Bird Thongchai). Sites: En.Wikipedia and Th.Wikipedia
5) A short-lived alt-country group, featuring Canadian artists Hawksley Workman, Jason Collett, and Andrew Cash. Bird released one album, Chrome Reflection, in 2000.
6) Bird are a five piece band, hailing from Liverpool, England. They combine haunting and poetic lyrics with melodic and eerie, sweeping guitar riffs. Bird put themselves under the genre of ‘atmospheric folk’ and atmospheric is definitely the word. Bird’s universe is magical and will leave you with hairs standing up on the back of your neck.
