Birds and Arrows
Birds and Arrows
BIRDS and ARROWS (of 307 KNOX Records) create unique music that is "full of romance and energy", "enchanting", and "the kind you fall in love with". The trio, based in Chapel Hill, NC, is Andrea Connolly(vocals and guitar), Pete Connolly(vocals and drums) and Josh Starmer(cello), and together they create a rich sound that is much more than the sum of their parts. The romance between Andrea and Pete's voices is distinctly captivating and intertwines with beautiful yet haunting cello melodies. BIRDS and ARROWS accomplish an elegant, warm sound that is truly their own. Their compelling and road tested live show appeals to a surprisingly wide range of audiences; they are the cherished rock band for folk lovers and the favorite folk group for rock fans.
The group was formed in 2007 by husband and wife Andrea and Pete Connolly who released 2 critically acclaimed EPs. The first eponymous EP documents the strained conditions under which the two first met, while "Woodgrain Heart" tells of how the two grew together. Grayson Currin praised "Woodgrain Heart" as "complementary voices wrapping together in rustic contentment and comfort, like a happy pair making music because that's how love makes them feel." Josh joined the group on cello during the recording of the band's first full length record "Starmaker" in 2009, expanding the narrative to describe tales of coming of age while still remaining intensely personal. Upon its release, "Starmaker" was picked by the Independent Weekly as the "Album of the Month". With multiple east coast and mid-west tours under their belts, the band is now about to release it's sophomore record "We're Gonna Run", May 10th with help from Knox Records.
