Bird To Beast Short Info

Armed with infectious songs full of love and wonder, Bird To Beast are a psych-folk duo spinning
magic from the sounds of yesteryear to create something fresh and unique.

Bird to Beast is the brainchild of recently married couple, Sam and Hannah Hird - but they didn't start writing music together until after they wed! After a chance meeting at their hometown's annual blues festival they fell in love through music, before deciding to start writing together.

Timeless melodies and soaring harmonies tip a hat to the pop nous of greats like The Beach Boys,
Kate Bush and The Beatles as well as contemporary singer-songwriters like Rufus Wainwright and
James Mercer.
