What people are saying
“Just interviewed my favorite Portland band! If you like the music of Bonnie Raitt, Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone, Patsy Cline or Nina Simone, you will love Red Bird’s music. ”

“The result is a band that is unabashedly soulful with elements of blues and roots. Gregg’s formal vocal training is evident in her ability to trade in both tenderness and sheer force.”
