Birds of Chicago

Birds of Chicago

Aug. 26
American Roots Series
5th and Vine St. – Cincinnati, OH
7:00pm – Free show
www.myfountainsquare.com

Birds of Chicago is a musical collective built around the husband-wife team of JT Nero and Allison Russell. Their unique brand of Americana encompasses mountain gospel, street corner doo-wop and classic soul.

JT Nero is a distinct songwriter who lists Mark Twain and Sam Cooke among his biggest influences. Nero first gained notoriety as front-man for Chicago’s JT & The Clouds, and The Be Good Tanyas provided an early career boost by covering the song, “Scattered Leaves.” Nero’s voice is often described as a fractured country soul croon, and the perfect counter-point to his partner’s warmer tones.
