Blackbird Sing
Blackbird Sing
Blackbird Sing has found the recipe to blending the swaggering bravado of punk, emotively captivating lyrics of the grandest forms of folk, rural country music aesthetics, the experimentation of an indie band with nothing to lose, and good old fashioned Americana that can only be described as exclusively their own. If asked, lead singer Vito Salinas will tell it like he has countless times before, “It’s not how you play. It’s what you play that really matters.”

Ladies and Gentlemen Blackbird Sing:
Vito Salinas: Singer/Songwriter, Guitar
George Ransom: Bass
James Magallanez: Guitar, Percussion, and Harmonica
Daniel Magallanez: Drums
Andy Salazar: Lead Guitar, Piano, and Trumpet

With the release of Bourbon legends, Devils and Dust effortlessly clash genres together to create something different all together. The full length album release is packed with alternative rock sounds, a country attitude, and a punk rock energy claiming rights to their own style. Lush but raw layers of guitars and vocals, catchy choruses, and tasteful vocal harmonies all pay tribute to how the record comes together as a whole.
THE FIRST SINGLE "TEXAS", IS AN UPBEAT, FUN, ALTERNATIVE ROCK SONG WITH THE AESTHETIC OF A CLASSIC ROCK SINGLE. THE SONG WORKS AMERICANA AND COUNTRY INSTRUMENTATION INTO A RADIO ROCK SONG AS IT BUILDS AND BECOMES SOMETHING OF A ANTHEM.

ANOTHER SINGLE "YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE" IS MORE OF A SWING POP ROCK SONG WITH A GUITAR HOOK AND BOASTS A PUNCH WITHOUT GOING OVER THE EDGE. ITS CATCHY RHYTHM BOPS ALONG AND KEEPS A CERTAIN ENERGY WHILE THE MELODY AND WORDS TELL A CLASSIC STORY.

"You know who you are, is about the one that got away, and when I wrote it I wanted her to know it was about her, but now I'm kinda nervous about it, and almost changed the name before the release. Then I thought, oh well we'll just keep it. Both songs are heartbreak songs through the eyes of a good person who makes bad decisions. The theme of the arrangements have a singer songwriter feel with a high energy behind it that stems from our passion for performing."
JIMMY NELSON AND BRADY BLACK MET IN THE AUSTIN MUSIC SCENE WHILE PERFORMING IN DIFFERENT BANDS. AFTER REALIZING THEY BOTH HAD A PASSION FOR MUSICAL DIVERSITY AS WELL AS PERFORMING, THEY BEGAN PLAYING GUITAR WITH EACH OTHER. IT BECAME IMMEDIATELY CLEAR THAT WRITING SONGS TOGETHER WAS A NATURAL AND EASY PROCESS FOR THEM, AND AFTER ACCUMULATING A HANDFUL OF SONGS, THEY DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO PERFORM FOR AN AUDIENCE AND DEVILS & DUST WAS BORN.

AFTER RELEASING AN ACOUSTIC EP "LIQUID COURAGE", AN ALL ACOUSTIC AND VOCAL RECORD, THEY GOT TOGETHER TO WORK ON WHAT WOULD BECOME THE BOURBON LEGENDS ALBUM. THE FIRST FULL BAND FULL LENGTH RELEASE FROM THE BAND.

DEVILS & DUST HAS OPENED FOR BANDS LIKE THE ATARIS, AND MIKE HERRERA OF MXPX ALONG WITH OTHERS. THE BAND IS PLANNING AN EXCLUSIVE TEXAS TOUR FOR THIS SPRING AND SUMMER.
