Show Review

I've always thought Bowerbirds have had one of the best names in the biz. For whatever reason, they've been playing second fiddle to the big bands in their folky flock for quite some time...which will hopefully change with the release of their adventurous new album The Clearing. In this clip Philip Moore and Beth Powers take you behind the scenes of the album. It's a candid and honest conversation, touching on both the music they make and their lives together.

Artist Bio

Bowerbirds are an American folk band formed in Raleigh, North Carolina in 2006. The group comprises Philip Moore (vocals, guitar), Beth Tacular (accordion, vocals) and Mark Paulson (violin, vocals). Allmusic writer Stewart Mason places their sound on "the dividing line between the freak folk contingent led by Devendra Banhart and Joanna Newsom and the more straightforward sunshine pop of Lavender Diamond." Their debut album, Hymns for a Dark Horse, released under Burly Time Records in 2007, received favorable reviews. Bowerbirds have toured in support of The Mountain Goats, with John Darnielle referring to the band as his "favorite new band in forever." Their second album, Upper Air, was released July 7, 2009. The band released The Clearing on March 6, 2012.
