About the Album

"Love is for the Birds" is a contemporary vocal jazz tune that borrows from folk and singer-songwriter genres. The title and the opening chord sequence take inspiration from Paul McCartney's song "Blackbird", while the chorus pays homage to the close vocal harmonies of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. It is the first single off the upcoming album "Nowhere Girl" and a great example of the thoughtfully crafted music on the record.
