Bird York's songs subtly reveal those things that rise out of the corners of the night: Memory, reverie, desire, and the emotions that lie cloaked when the sun is high. The melodic grace, affecting honesty, and elegant atmosphere of Bird's music will lead the listener to an inescapable conclusion: This musician is a rara avis." Chris Morris / Billboard Magazine
“A gem. Bird takes flight with songs that matter and a captivating voice. Its smart, sophisticated and incredibly sexy. "
Chris Douridas- KCRW “NEW GROUND
“Norah Jones and Sarah McLachlan fans, pay close attention. York knows how to fuse mellow with soulful, drawing her audience in with simple arrangements and mesmerizing vocals. ...she possesses a voice of smoky enchantment.”
Courtney Greenwood/ Women Who Rock Magazine
“...the sultry singer proves she’s a thoughtful songwriter to be taken seriously.”
Larry Katz-The Boston Herald
“ York is a pleasant surprise. She’s made a record aimed at grown-up listeners delivered in a smoky voice that’s perfect for late-night listening. “
J. Poet / Paste Magazine
“ This entire album is a haunting melodic dream told by one of the finest unrecognized singer/songwriters to arise from the Los Angeles music basin. York manages to burn a hole in our hearts with her soft velvet-hour voice and her steaming inflections. “
Michael Mollura / Music Connection Magazine
"...York's pensive emotional lyrics are some of the most beautiful, well crafted verses to come down the pike in a long time. York's lyrics capture vivid poignant flashes in still life like a Diane Arbus slide show."
Tom Farrell/Music Biz Magazine
"She's got some of the sexiest, smokiest pipes I've heard in quite a while. Her music is sweet
without being sappy, mysterious without being sullen, and haunting without being depressing.
Sometimes I come across an artist who's so talented and great to listen to, it makes me feel sorry
for the next artist I review, because this artist is definitely a tough act to follow."
Erik Deckers/ Indie-Music.com
"She's a siren. She's a musician and writer of the highest caliber. Her singular vocals are the first thing to stand out. The album has the kind of dark lust and texture that most of us wish we could get our hands on in everyday life. At least now you can listen to it."
Derek Sivers-president CD BABY
"... York's sultry vocals and songwriting sensibility bring to mind Portishead and Everything But The Girl. As with those groups, she weds acoustic instrumentation with heavy rhythmic grooves. Lyrically, York tackles difficult subject matter (a child's obsession with firearms in "Bought a Gun," a runaway teenage girl's sexual awakening in "Open Wider") with sensitivity and intelligence. Ultimately, Bird is exquisite--from the opening track to the lulling, emotionally abundant denouement of "Breathe Deeply."
Michael Wells/ Music critic/Amazon.com
"Melding the downtempo groove of Trip-Hop with the guitars of a modern rock band and a
vocalist who might represent the less angry side of P.J. Harvey, Bird York could easily find its
way into the mainstream."
Will L. / Listen.com
" ...a commanding opus. York (has)...a poetic sensibility that is diamond sharp in it’s perceptions. Hook laden songs like “Open Wider” are deceptively complex. Her voice is compelling and exotic."
Scott Barker/ Tuscon Lifestyle Magazine
