Heidi Spencer and the Rare Birds

“Under Streetlight Glow” (Cooperative)


A Milwaukee belle whose authentic, blues-tinged, country-tinged sound world is evolving gracefully and brilliantly around songs that are delicate and often quite sparse.

Biography :

Heidi Spencer, a singer-songwriter and film school graduate from Milwaukee, has been quietly touring and recording for years under most radars, but now that she’s been picked up by the estimable Bella Union for her UK debut album, (the label counts Fleet Foxes, Midlake and Beach House among its charges) her delicate, unhurried country-folk is going to reach many more ears. She has a girlish, sweet voice that’s nicely edged with rasp – it’s an appealing mix and one well suited to a collection of songs about yearning.
