If you happen to be in Austin this March for SXSW, I’d highly recommend you check out the firing soul, funk, and r&b combo – T Bird & The Breaks.
High School for the lead singer Tim Crane, A.K.A. T Bird, wasn’t a school at all; it was a record shop. T Bird spent most skipped schooldays tagging cars with flyers in exchange for records – really good records. An inch-thick stack of flyers might be worth Ray Charles’ “What’d I Say” pts. 1 and 2, or James Brown’s “I Can’t Stand It (When You Touch Me)” backed with “There Was A Time”.
Several years passed and Tim eventually rode the rails cross-country looking for musical inspiration, eventually ending up in Austin where he slowly formed the quintessential eleven piece band – something that sounds like it was formed via a Blues Brothers style inspired mission from God.
T-Bird’s debut full length CD, “Learn About It” just dropped in January, and the piece of musical funkiness you’ll be sopping up with your biscuit today is called ‘Take Time’.
