Blue Bird

About Blue Bird: When asked by an Omaha music promoter to describe the genre of her new band Blue Bird, songwriter and front-woman Marta Fiedler simply replied “make-out music.”

Music critic Tim McMahan of The Reader (Omaha, NE) and lazy-i.com was a bit more expansive when he wrote “Miss Fiedler indeed sounds like a Nebraska version of Jenny Lewis on songs derived from the indie-Americana template. You’ll be reminded of Lewis and She & Him and The Mynabirds and all the other women-led bands that seem to be making a mark on indie these days — especially locally, when was the last time we had so many women contributing so much musically? Fiedler has an advantage over a lot of them in how she writes songs — there was always something in the compositions that surprised me. Maybe it was just her own voice slipping through.”

Blue Bird is a 7-piece ensemble that mixes influences of folk, soul, doo-wop, and Americana into intricately woven pop songs punctuated by soaring female vocals, full-bodied, orchestration, and heartfelt, confessional lyrics.

Blue Bird is the latest in a long line of hot new bands to arise from the legendary musical breeding ground of Omaha, Nebraska, the birthplace of Bright Eyes, Cursive, The Faint, Tilly and the Wall, and 311, to name just a few. Under Marta’s musical leadership, the band is filled out by a who’s who of Omaha music veterans, including members of Eagle Seagull (PIAS Recordings) and Thunder Power (Slumber Party Records).
