About Hummingbird Syndicate

Hummingbird Syndicate is a collective of like-minded musicians, led by singer/songwriters Lynn Shipley and Jon Macey. On stage and in the studio they shift deftly between a dynamic power pop jangle and a softer, folk/rock shimmer. Most songs feature three- and four-part harmonies and a 1960s/70s vibe, blending sunny Laurel Canyon folk and East Coast urban pop with an edgy dash of early ‘70s British rock. All of this is delivered with a modern twist by veteran musicians drawing on myriad musical and cultural influences. Live shows emphasize original songs from their singles and album, and also include surprising covers, spanning many eras and paying tribute to some of the great songwriters. Another unique aspect of the live band is the ‘syndicate’ – along with Macey and Shipley, the core unit features Chris Maclachlan on electric and upright bass and Lenny Shea on drums. Depending on the show, any combination of guitarists may appear (sometimes four of them at once!) Tom Hostage, Dan Coughlin, Andy Hollinger, Steve Gilligan and Jim Melanson all appear on the POP TRICKS album and on stage. These musicians are equally adept at electric and acoustic instruments; mandolins, mandolas, 12-strings, and B-Benders round out the mix. Contributing to the beautiful harmony sound are vocalists Jennifer Lewis Bennett and MaryJaye Simms. Mamas and the Papas led to The Archies led to ABBA. The Byrds led to Buffalo Springfield led to The Flying Burrito Brothers. The Velvet Underground and Nico led to Eno and Roxy. Ray Price led to George Jones (we like Tammy too). We present HUMMINGBIRD SYNDICATE. Our spin on all that. 60s pop with 70s rock.. Male/female vocals. Ringing guitars. But, modern sound. The band is based in Boston and LA and sounds like it.
