Combining a wintry longing with the warmth of a familiar folktale, Humbird stretches between experimental folk and environmental Americana to embrace the unexpected. Revolving around Siri Undlin’s songwriting and storytelling, Humbird began as a solo moniker before evolving into an award-winning, rotating cast of musicians and collaborators that now often include woodwinds, upright bass, synthesizer, and drums. The alt-folk music project is currently based in Minneapolis, MN, and will probably resonate with fans of Patti Smith, Sheryl Crow, and Big Thief. Humbird has already garnered over 20 million online streams and accolades from trusted tastemakers like Folk Alley, SXSW, 89.3 The Current, Kerrville Folk Fest, and more.
