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.

Fountain Square, 520 Vine St, Cincinnati, OH
Free, 7pm (Chuck on at 8:30pm), All Ages

 Chuck Mead has announced U.S. tour dates in support of his debut album for Nashville’s Plowboy Records, Free State Serenade, a wild ride of hillbilly blues and honky-tonk. Mead, best known for his work as frontman for BR549, wrote the album based on the stories, legends, crimes and lonesome open roads of his childhood and formative years in Kansas. Free State Serenade was recorded with his longtime band The Grassy Knoll Boys.

Free State Serenade jumps from jaunty mountain airs like “Neosho Valley Sue,” in which BR549’s Don Herron lends his fiddle to what Mead calls a “coming of age ditty,” to “Sittin’ on Top of the Bottom,” a whip-smart ode to “Sittin’ On Top of the World.” “The Devil By Their Side” is a dark, chugging rock ’n’ roll number about William Quantrill’s murderous 1863 Civil War raid of Lawrence, Kansas.
