Andrew Bird is a baroque pop signer/songwriter who's known to fill his albums and live performances with his remarkable knack for whistling. Also leader of a band, Bird sings, plays guitar and violin--all while managing an impressive loop station when playing live. The talented multi-instrumentalist first got his start playing with the nostalgic quasi-swing outfit Squirrel Nut Zippers, but after quickly growing out of that band's gimmicky sound, he soon left the group to concentrate on evolving his solo material. Though he released his debut LP, Music of Hair, in 1996, Bird didn't receive significant attention from the indie music community until he he dropped his critically acclaimed 2005 album, Andrew Bird & the Mysterious Production of Eggs.
