Dirty Bird
Dirty Bird
Dirty Bird hails from the concrete woodlands of New York City, and consists of Christie Belanger, Natasha Thweatt, Nick Katz, Julia Conrad John Crisan and Blake Suben. Though the band is young, each member has spent their lives grounded in song. With roots going back to New York’s famous LaGuardia High School, Dirty Bird began in 2016 as the indisputable forces of music compelled long time artists and friends to reconnect. Since then, the band has presented powerful performances to a variety of venues around the Northeast, including Rockwood Music Hall, Muchmore’s and Radio Bean. Dirty Bird brings both new and established audiences honest, perceptive lyrics interlaced with effervescent melodious arrangements. Soulful, harmonious and ever-evolving, Dirty Bird offers a unique sound that redefines what it means to be a folk band.
After traversing 5 continents and 20 countries with only a guitar and a backpack, Humbird returns home to sing songs from the edge of the world. Combining a wintry longing with the warmth of a familiar folktale, Humbird stretches traditional genres of folk and Americana to embrace the unexpected. This music invites a refreshing dissonance into the house, it leaves breadcrumbs along the path and reflects light back at the stars.

Creating music out of a mosaic of influences like Joni Mitchell, Bon Iver and Bill Frisell, Humbird weaves it all together with powerful lyrics and a stubborn pursuit of the sound of the North. The release of Humbird’s double EP “Elsewhere” and “Where Else” in Summer 2017 is just the beginning.
Eliza Edens
Born to a gardener & a journalist who would blast The Beatles, Canned Heat, & Peter, Paul and Mary during car rides to-and-from their rural Massachusetts home, it's fitting that Eliza Edens is a musician who takes an observational approach to the natural world around her. Combining the adventurous fingerpicking of The Tallest Man on Earth, the calm resolve of Laura Marling, and the aching pulse of Bon Iver, Eliza spins songs with wistful lyrics and winding melodies that belong somewhere between your tumbledown front porch stoop and a hazy bar in the big city -- and leave a little space to linger. She is a grantee of Club Passim's 2017 Iguana Music Fund and is currently crafting a debut record.
