On Tour

Andrew Bird

Season 2 Episode 14 | 29m 1s

Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist and lyricist Andrew Bird picked up his first violin at the age of four. When Andrew Bird performs, he rarely replicates a song's perfect structure as it lives on the album. Songs shape within their loops, each one constructed on violin, guitar and glockenspiel, layered, then looped over themselves in a tangled and textured layer cake of sonics.
