what folks are saying...
"The acoustic foursome Birdy fills the nest with an abundance of harmonies and organic instrumentation throughout its latest long player Magic Days. The band more than lives up to its "fringe folk" tagline, thanks to a series of earthy, slightly quirky originals, alongside inventive rearrangements of the tried and true "Wayfaring Stranger" and "You Are My Sunshine."
Illinois Entertainer Magazine
"With its first full-length album, "Magic Days", BIRDY proves it has left the nest and continues to soar to new heights. “Magic Days" offers great new originals penned by Sharon Speziale, especially the stand-out "Three O' Clock", along with excellent covers and traditional material, titles like "You Are My Sunshine", "Adieu False Heart", "Wayfaring Stranger", "Dear Companion" and "The One I Love Is Gone." The chemistry and combined talents of Speziale (vocals, guitar), Bianca Bevard (vocals), Megan Thomas (percussion), and Roy McNaughton (bass, mandolin, vocals) result in a truly unique and outstanding sound. BIRDY shines with its vocals and harmony, astute musicianship, and instrumentation and arrangements that produce -- as one listener described it -- a "somewhat mystical" sound. BIRDY is great and "Magic Days" is most highly recommended!

“I recently had the distinct pleasure of recording BIRDY at CAU. This magical group
mesmerized me with their beautiful lyrics and harmonies. It’s as if my favorite female folk singers from my youth joined this band, and now I am hooked forever. You must go see them live. Trust me on this one!”
