Biography

No Bird Sing signed to Crushkill Recordings formed in late summer of 2008, combining the talents of Joe Horton (stage name of Eric Blair, vocals/keys) and Robert Mulrennan (guitars/electronics) of Hyder Ali with Graham O’Brien (drummer/electronics) of Abzorbr.

The core of the band remains a trio, although guest appearances include Casey O’Brien and Kristoff Krane of Abzorbr. The space that results from the guitar/drum/vocal lineup is largely influenced by artists like One Day as a Lion and The Black Keys, while lyrical influences are pulled from sources as diverse as Eyedea, Mos Def, Aesop Rock, Kimya Dawson, Sadistik and John Lee Hooker.

Like the band itself, the name No Bird Sing is a derivative of varied sources. The idea was sparked in Northern California by an ornithological paperback (called No Bird Sings) in a bookstore window.

O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
Alone and palely loitering?
The sedge has wither’d from the lake,
And no birds sing.
