Erin Durant & Tough Old Bird

ERIN DURANT (Brooklyn, NY)

Rarely does an artist appear, as if out of thin air, with a full body of work where lyrically lush songs carry you into other worlds as if they were your own. Erin Durant's second album, Islands, is an odyssey of sorts, with songs that blur the line between reality and fiction. Produced by Kyp Malone of TV On The Radio, the eight songs deliver clarity within mystery and adventure in their uncluttered vignettes.

"Durant’s songwriting is fine-boned and small-scale, and her lyrics are quietly epic." -- Pitchfork

"A rhythmic grandeur, ‘Islands’ feels timeless, a stunning single bursting with both light and magic." -- Gold Flake Paint

"Erin Durant has the same flair for couching desolate emotions in jaunty sweetness as Jenny Lewis, Joanna Newsom and even For the Roses-era Joni Mitchell.” -- The Guardian



Formed in the small community of Fillmore, New York by songwriting brothers Matthew and Nathan Corrigan, Tough Old Bird plays modern folk music that reflects the landscape it comes from, a place where the last train just pulled out and the carnival is always on its way to the next town. Tough Old Bird's new album, The Old Great Lakes, expands their palette outside that of traditional folk music and features 11 new songs recorded in Buffalo, NY during the winter or 2018-19.

“Heavily influenced by landscape and atmosphere, the brother duo shapes their songs to elicit visions … gray and a bit melancholy, but gorgeous and peaceful all the same.” - Red Line Roots

“Perhaps this is the real beauty of Tough Old Bird; their ability to capture Rust-Belt languor and the weariness of the road without succumbing to it.” - BuffaBLOG
