COUNTRY: Alt-Country, COUNTRY: Americana
…when the lyrics hit home, the two voices intertwine, and the guitar is crying away, The Hummingbirds have all it takes to become classics themselves.
-Alan Goldsmith, Ann Arbor Observer
Three time Detroit Music Award winners for 2007, The Hummingbirds are certainly creating a buzz of their own. You can expect a twangy mix of memorable melodies and sweet harmonies from this unique "electro-coustic" duo. Talented multi-instrumentalist Stephen Grant Wood adds his telecaster twang into the mix, while songwriter, Rachel Lynn lays down the rock steady rhythm with the acoustic guitar. The vocals are shared between the two performers and the harmonies are outstanding! The Hummingbirds bare a real down home raw country soul.
Their full length self-titled release was voted as "Best Country Album" in the 2006 Detroit Music Awards. The songs on the CD, co-written by the duo, tell tales of love, loss, happiness, and heartache. Their roots style Americana sound is unique and the songs quickly pull in audiences for a closer listen. Much inspiration for the group comes from the country classic sound of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s as well as from some of the best influences in American music today such as, Lucinda Williams, Wilco, Steve Earle, and many others.
The Hummingbirds are currently touring the midwest region, and are working on a second full length album, due out later in 2009.
“An earnest group with the spirit of today’s young alt-country…and the appreciation for older classic-country music."
-Melody Baetens, Detroit News
"The Hummingbirds shine in their live performance…I love to watch their beautiful chemistry on stage."
