KG Bird: Following a personal tragedy, brothers Chris and Tim James found solace in playing music together—Tim on guitar and Chris on drums. Now, ten years later, the brothers James have switched roles and recruited bassist Ryan Parmenter to create KG Bird. Pulling from legends like George Harrison, Silver Jews and Creedence Clearwater Revival, the three-piece creates lush freak folk laden with experiment ation while maintaining pop sensibility. The trio played together in the now defunct Echo Park-based rock outfit, Cue the Moon, and for the past six months have been on a recording spree. KG Bird recently released a digital album, Morning Weather. While playing gigs around their hometown of Los Angeles, the three-piece discovered the epic nature of Will Nicoll’s (Steel Toed Slippers) guitar skills, and after just a few practices quickly recruited the 22-year-old prodigy. As a quartet, KG Bird is working on a follow-up album that should be ready to melt the ears of the world early next year.
