Hezekiah Jones to release "Have You Seen Our New Fort?" - March 29, 2011


Yer Bird Records is excited to announce the official worldwide release date for the new Hezekiah Jones album - March 29th, 2011!

The album is 10 tracks consisting of new and reworked songs and there is even a cover song!  You get everything from their well known full band instrumentation sound to Raphael Cutrufello's signature lamenting ballads.  This one is something to behold - and a vinyl release will only make it all that much better.  Please visit the album page for Hezekiah Jones for a more information and your first taste of the album.

Friday Compilation Update, Part 4!

Hey all, we wanted to quickly advise of a couple more artists for the Folk Music For What Lies Ahead - so check below!

If one artist defined who we were, are and hope to be, it would be our next artist.  We welcome:

Hezekiah Jones!  Yes, we have convinced Raph and crew to provide an unreleased track for use and its another great example why he is a staple of the Philadelphia independent music scene.  We are still stunned by the Bread of Teeth EP and look forward to his next release of this pensive singer-songwriter meets bring the house down folk artist!  Recently featured on Break Through Radio's "Spotlight on the City" segment for Philly (see April 13th podcast on BTR), Hezekiah Jones is proving to be one of our favourite artists to watch.


We have also found ourselves working with the incomprable:

Micah Blue Smaldone!  Micah is one of those artists that create an experience for the listener.  His music takes you in, warms you and feels like it was always there but you just didn't know it yet.  One of the main reasons we found Micah is due to his absolutely stellar album "The Red River" from a couple of years back.  That album was such a moment, his sharp accents on the acoustic guitar followed by that voice - it was one of the most criminally underappreciated (outside of certain circles) album in a long time.  This time he has provided a song from the Red River Album sessions - you will once again get to find yourself immersed in this almost 8 minute opus.

There you have another update on what will be filling your ears this June!

Luke Elliot & Hezekiah Jones


What the hell has been going on with Yer Bird? 

Well, we've relocated finally!  To Philadelphia and are in a bit of a state of flux. We're still trying to figure out the fate of The Aviary experiment, and really what direction to move towards as the record industry transforms itself into something much more dynamic.

While all that is going, I'm excited to present 2 new records to the catalog - "Bread of Teeth", the amazing new EP by Hezekiah Jones and "In Our Embrace", the debut full-length by the astounding songwriter Luke Elliot. Check out their individual album pages to the right!
