A&R Factory Review of “Elevation” – 09.02.19

Thank you to Amelia Vandergast, whose review of “Elevation” on the A&R Factory blog describes the track as an “alchemic attack on ignorance and bigotry….leaving you with the sense that you’ve just stumbled across the artist we never knew we needed“.  As I write, The Specials’ album Encore is #1 in the UK charts, and Brandi […]

Lost on Radio Podcast, Episode 254 – “Same Heart”

In trying to promote our own work, we’ve had the pleasure and privilege of discovering like-minded platforms such as the Lost on Radio Spotify Playlist and Lost on Radio Podcasts presented by Mark Knight of Right Chord Music. Knight describes Lost on Radio as “a weekly showcase of incredible new, undiscovered, and under appreciated music […]

Turtle Tempo interview – 06.02.19

Turtle Tempo is a music discovery webzine and events promoter based in South East London that “prides itself on being fully committed to giving exceptional independent & alternative music artists the recognition that they deserve“.  Annie Rew Shaw’s excellent interview with us was published on February 6th, 2019: “Hailing from all across the globe, Project Blackbird […]

RnR Magazine Review – Vol 2, Issue 73

  A nicely positive review from Gareth Thompson in the January/February 2019 edition of RnR Magazine , which doesn’t tend to review independent releases.  “More a creative than commercial act“?  We’ll take that anytime, thank you very much!  But, credit where credit is due: the “two others” are the equally indispensable Thure Gade Johansen (co-songwriter and guitarist […]

  FM, shortwave, and online alternative music station Radio Marabu have quietly championed “Elevation” to the #1 slot on their playlist (“meistgespielten Tracks“), and on December 10th, DJ Marcel Fischer marked the occasion with an interview with Ming on his “Neue Musik” programme Gitarre X (listen to the edit below, or the full show here).  Vielen dank […]

Welcome

We’d like to give a warm and belatedly public welcome to Jamie Varley, who will be depping for Thure on those occasions when Thure is in Denmark, and who will be a valued fifth band member/jack-of-all-trades when Thure is here. Jamie’s first gig with Project Blackbird will be at More Coffee Co in Melton Mowbray on November […]

Trust-the-Doc reviews Endurance – 30.10.18

Enormous thanks to the prolific and talented Neil March, whose song-by-song review in his Trust-the-Doc blog calls Endurance “a masterpiece of musical invention and cleverly crafted Pop of an intelligent, calm and yet emotionally affecting kind. Evidence beyond all reasonable doubt that Project Blackbird are a band the world needs to know about.”

“Elevation” makes Fresh Faves: Batch 296

We were blown away to find out that “Elevation” made Fresh On the Net’s “Fresh Faves” last weekend: a batch of great songs, whittled down from approximately 200 to 25 by selected moderators, and then from 25 to 10 by listeners’ votes.  The quality of this group is, if we do say so ourselves, exceptional.
