Birdsong At Morning Premiere SIGNS AND WONDERS Video To Celebrate Spring

Chamber-pop group Birdsong At Morning recently released their exquisite two-disc/Blu-ray package Signs and Wonders, a carefully crafted and richly textured work recorded in high-resolution surround sound to highlight the masterful audio quality of the music. The album features a lush 20-piece string orchestra and many well-known Boston-area musicians. Today, Elmore Magazine is premiering the title track "Signs and Wonders" to celebrate spring - watch it HERE.

Like many indie-minded endeavors, Birdsong At Morning, a phrase that comes from a 19th century Robert Louis Stevenson poem, is a project centered around Alan Williams, who writes and sings the songs, creates the string arrangements, conducts the orchestra, co-engineers, produces and mixes the albums as well as scripts, directs, and edits the band's music videos. He leads the collaborative effort between he and his bandmates, bassist Greg Porter (Aimee Mann, Patty Griffin) and guitarist Darleen Wilson (Patty Larkin, Catie Curtis). The album features drummer Ben Wittman (Sting, Paul Simon, Paula Cole), guitarist Thomas Juliano (Talking to Animals, Seven Mary Three), and is recorded with Boston legend, David Minehan (The Neighborhoods, Paul Westerberg), and mastered by Grammy Award winner Adam Ayan, who has mastered many award winning recordings, including 46 Grammy Award winners, is a 5x Latin Grammy Award winner, and a 2018 nominee for Audio Engineer of the Year by the Academy Of Country Music.

"Art is the Handmaid of Human Good" serves as the motto of Lowell, Massachusetts, the birthplace of Jack Kerouac, Bette Davis, the American industrial revolution, and where Birdsong At Morning draw their inspiration as a part of the growing community of artists and musicians moved by the heritage and the spirit of renewal evidenced all around them. Thought-provoking and soul-baring, Birdsong At Morning's music spins elegant tapestries of sound, words, and melodies that reflect the city of Lowell's solid foundation of the still standing buildings, and the warmth of the beating hearts within this community.

Signs and Wonders, the follow up to A Slight Departure (2015) which Pop Dose said, "These Massachusetts based visionaries have a compelling and expansive sound...a serious, ponderous and lush piece of work that will make you stop in your tracks and pay very careful attention..." was conceived with the visuals in mind, so the full-experience includes videos for each track such as the bold colors of lead-off track, "Waterfall," the beautiful and heartbreaking, "All The Sadness," the politically charged "Won't Let Go", and the haunting "My Ghost", among others. The album has been getting significant airplay at college and non-com stations such as WMFO, WESS, KCSU, WVIA, WMKY, WAWL, WERU, and WMCO to name a few.
