Description

Singer/songwriter Andrew Bird is a multi-instrumentalist known to riff on a glockenspiel, among other instruments, but his primary tool is the violin, and on it he is a virtuoso in the truest meaning of the word. Whether sweeping or creeping, his music is cinematic: when he marries the bow and string it's to aching effect, but he would just as soon pluck out notes that pile up to a crescendo and collapse in a rollicking explosion. In the end, though, it is neither the precision of his playing nor his incredibly intuitive musicality that it the best part of a Bird song, it's his wordplay—the way he twists a turn of phrase and conjures images that capture listeners' imaginations, leaving them utterly under his spell.
