Music fans of the Pacific Northwest, hello and welcome back to our third annual year-end daily countdown, 100 Bands in 100 Days, where every day until December 31st, we’re showcasing a new band or artist you have to know about, presented by Verity Credit Union. Follow the #100Bands100Days hashtag on Twitter to stay on top of all the bands featured and make sure to follow Verity on Twitter as well. Some days the featured act could be an established and locally-adored northwest-based musician that perhaps you haven’t been turned onto yet, and other times they could be a band with a small following that just hasn’t had their deserved time in the sun yet. Either way, we’re fairly confident you can come away from this daily segment with plenty of new favorites. Today’s musical offering is a band called Dangerbird from Seattle.
Today’s band borrows heavily from a lot of different genres at the same time. They don’t have the twang of a country band but certainly have that flavor, I guess if I had to try and label them I’d say it’s a sort of hybrid between country, Americana and indie rock. While they aren’t exactly reinventing the wheel and exploring uncharted musical territories, their warm, rich sound should be quite accessible to a good portion of listeners. The band released a 10-track self-titled album back in September that is perfect for listening in front of a fire during these chilly northwest nights.
From their bio:
Dangerbird is a band from Seattle whose influences come from the rainy mountains of pacific northwest, grassy plains of Texas and the northern woods of Sweden. These geographically diverse backgrounds blends itself into a musical nest of rock n’ roll, blues and country comfort of Americana. Each song is the sound of a familiar feeling; the telling of heartbreak and happiness, good times and hangovers.
Make sure you catch the band live, they’ve played a number of shows lately with other bands that have either appeared in this 100/100 showcase or that we’ve reviewed over the last year or two.
