THE NEW ALBUM
IF THIS IS THE END
The UK-based Project Blackbird’s four core members are vocalist Ming Nagel (originally from the USA), guitarist Alan Roberts, multi-instrumentalist Jamie Varley, and multi-instrumentalist Jon Read, former trumpet player for The Specials. This “extraordinary” band, as BBC’s Tom Robinson has described them, offers an atmospheric and genre-fluid listening experience that draws equally upon intellect and emotion. “Imagine a party at Ronnie Scott’s,” one fan suggests, “where Sade, Björk, Jeff Beck, and David Byrne meet Portishead and then go for a late night curry to exchange ideas…sublime”.
The band’s second full-length album, If This Is the End, is currently available on CD, double gatefold vinyl, mp3 download, and a variety of streaming platforms.
