The man who once told us he loved us from the bottom of his pencil case, founder Beautiful South member Dave Hemingway

returns with his new band SUNBIRDS.

Dave has been keeping busy together with erstwhile South colleague, guitarist/songwriter Phil Barton, new discovery
singer/violinist Laura Wilcockson and drummer Marc Parnell. Their debut album ‘Cool To Be Kind’ was released in November
2020, on the independent label Nectar Records signalling the arrival of Sunbirds with new songs and a new sound.
Although born and bred in England, the band's sound predominantly features the instrumentation of traditional American roots
music combined with the occasional outburst of guitar heavy melody more associated with Seattle in the late 80's/early 90's.

However, you can only sing about what you know:

“Although a lot of the songs have an Americana feel” says Dave “they’re still about life in England. You’re going to feel a bit daft

singing about pick-up trucks and low down honky-tonks when you live in Yorkshire.”
