The Falling Birds are a garage duo with a stripped down, no frills, approach to rock ’n’ roll. The Falling Birds follow a simple concept: write songs with foundations in blues and folk, then throttle them with punk rock snarl. The combination is a sound that is all their own, a modern blend of post punk Americana that defies easy categorization.
In 2011 Stephen Artemis (vocals, guitar & harmonica) met Dave Alan (drums, percussion, & keys) in New York City. The band played their first show in New York’s Lower East Side and honed their sound while gigging throughout NYC for the next several years.
In 2015 The Falling Birds recorded their EP ’Til We All Fall Down in their basement. The self produced ’Til We All Fall Down took off on social media as well as internet and terrestrial radio. It landed The Falling Birds a spot at CMJ 2015 as well as independent tours throughout the US, UK and Canada.
In 2016 the duo made their first appearance in Austin T.X. during the South by Southwest Festival and Brooklyn’s Northside Festival. They produced their first official music video for My Girl which took home the Move Music Festival’s Creative Achievement Award.
Most recently the Falling Birds have recorded a new EP What Is There To Talk About which will be released February 17th, 2017. The EP was recorded at SpeakerSonic Studio in Brooklyn, N.Y. and co-produced by The Falling Birds and Brian Speaker (Jeffrey Lewis, The Femdoms, Amateur Blonde, Crazy and the Brains). Mastering was done by Grammy Award nominated engineer Jeff Lipton (Arcade Fire, Dropkick Murphys, LCD Sound System, Heartless Bastards) at Peerless Mastering in Boston, MA. East Coast tour dates have been scheduled.
