About Humbird

Combining a wintry longing with the warmth of a familiar folktale, Humbird stretches between experimental folk and environmental Americana to embrace the unexpected. This music invites a refreshing dissonance into the house, it leaves breadcrumbs along the path and reflects light back at the stars. Humbird’s debut album Pharmakon (Aug. 2019) is a “...an absolutely hypnotic listening experience” according to Folk Alley. Atwood Magazine describes it as music wrapped in “gentle rebellion”. 

Months after its initial release, Humbird’s debut continues to resonate with listeners, wracking up online streams and (more importantly) connecting with listeners all over the world. Inspired by artists like Joni Mitchell, John Prine and Big Thief, Humbird crafts songs of American mysticism rooted in the grit of the upper midwest.


About Alpha Consumer

There was this one time that some members of Alpha Consumer played the music of Ornette Coleman for Ornette Coleman at the Walker Art Center on his birthday... that was pretty cool. The members of Alpha Consumer have played music on 5 continents at countless storied venues, and on Saturday Night Live, the Tonight Shows with Conan and Jay Leno, Letterman, Fallon, Colbert, Ellen, Later with Jools Holland, and the Late Late show with Craig Ferguson. Nevertheless, the most rewarding music the members of Alpha Consumer have played in the last 20 years or so has often been their own, and they will continue to make time for that till the wheels come off.
