Birdwoman proudly presents her long awaited debut album
'And Then The Day Came'
The follow up to her 2014 EP 'Ghosts' and her first full length release, "And Then The Day Came” is a genre bending rabbit hole journey through acoustic folk pop numbers, ethereal, bluesy ballads and gypsy punk electric guitar sounds. From apathy to female empowerment, it is a powerful manifesto from start to finish. Recorded under heightened circumstances in the lead up to throat surgery in 2017, it came together quickly and without much forward planning and over thinking. The songs were a collection she had written over 15 years. They are the voices of all the girls she was, and the woman she has become, telling stories of innocence, death, loss, love, liberation, philosophy and Wesley.
Although the operation was a great success with no apparent damage to her vocal chords, her voice took most of 2017 to come back. It was a dark time for the singer who began to question what she would do next if she couldn't sing anymore. She began making art and film and a whole new world of visual art opened up. She made two music videos and a wholes series of artwork for her album. She slowly returned to the scene in 2018 playing a series of small and intimate gigs while she rediscovered herself as a performer and learned how to sing her album again. The journey has made her stronger and has elevated her live show to the next level. She is a must see live act.
Her unique sound is whats sets her apart and makes her an artist of great discovery and style. She will not be pigeonholed. She creates her genre as she writes. She has been compared to the likes of Kate Bush, Laura Marling, Wallis Bird and Grace Slick all rolled into one. She must be seen live.

"and now I see
it's all just a cosmic game
