From the colourful streets of Byron Bay, Blackbirds brings an eloquence and simple elegance to sound which is most likened to a harmonic bath of honey. Guitar, ukulele,
male and female vocal harmonies and percussion all combine to create a beautiful Blackbirds sound.
The voice of Renee Simone has a thick, warm resonance that soothes the soul. With her Jamaican descent Renee brings flavours of her heritage right through to her UK based upbringing. She blends her joyous and soulful vocals with the bouncy island grooves of Adi to create a distinctive relaxed Byron Bay sound.
Blackbirds guitarist Adi grew up in Lombok, Indonesia, playing pots and pans and anything that would make a sound. Playing the nylon string guitar like it's 3 instruments, he lays down thick and juicy baselines beneath his guitar lines, and incorporates a percussive element.
