Making a landing in Humboldt County as they fly south, Birds of Chicago centers around the duo of JT Nero and Allison Russell, who make beautiful music together. “The braiding of their singular voices is surprising and often magical,” says the Chicago Sun-Times, and it’s true. JT’s voice sounds scratchy and a little worn, like a favorite record you’ve played a thousand times. Allison’s voice sounds like Emmylou Harris on her third latté, rich, joyful, and able to go anywhere. Their music, at the intersection of folk, rock, and roots, is arresting and original.
