Birds of Chicago, is a collective based around JT Nero and Allison Russell. Whether touring as a duo or with the full family band, Nero and Russell have emerged as two of the most compelling new voices in North American Roots music.

Nero’s fractured country-soul voice wrapped in Russell’s silver and gold tones, is a fine thing. Not too perfect, not at all saccharine, you’ll hear echoes of mountain gospel, street corner doo-wop, and classic soul. Accompanied by just a banjo and a guitar, it’s haunting. Fired by the band, it’s a full tilt revival.

Former Portlander Raina Rose opens the show.

Fantastic venue and performance. This band is worth seeing. It was so intimate at cafe Lena and the acoustics were spot on as was their voices and guitar rifts. It was my first time there but I will be back.

They always put on a good show. Was really cute to hear how much tougher it was on them than their daughter to leave her behind. Can’t believe she’s already in kindergarten. Yep, we sorta feel like members of the family.
