ABOUT BACKYARD BIRDS
Backyard Birds - Linda Baker (vocals, electric guitar), Jean Catino (vocals, ukulele), June Coha (vocals, ukulele), Larry Prather (bass) and Linc Russin (mandolin) - perform their fresh blend of vocal harmonies in a wide variety of music, from Americana, rock and roll, alt-country and R&B to jazz standards and surprising songs you'll be singing all the way home. Formed in Santa Cruz, California, in 2017, the Birds have performed at Michael's on Main, Felton Music Hall, Chaminade Resort and Spa, Davenport Roadhouse, The Food Lounge, and Bocci’s Cellar, among other venues. The three women’s close-knit harmonies and the band’s acoustic stylings have drawn comparisons to the music of the T Sisters and Rosanne Cash, and their discerning selection of diverse and eclectic material is unique. Their covers include songs by Richard Thompson, Anna McGarrigle, First Aid Kit, Rosanne Cash, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Imelda May, the Zombies, and the Beatles.
The Backyard Birds play clubs, cafes, parties, and special events, and are particularly interested in performance opportunities at wineries and at house concerts in Santa Cruz County, Monterey County, and Silicon Valley.
