Transcribed by Cameron Brydon (
Andrew Bird is an amazing singer/songwriter out of Chicago. He is a one-man orchestra, playing multiple instruments during each song, looping samples of each to build songs.
He is amazing live, putting on his entire show with just one person, Kevin O'Donnel, who plays drums and keyboards simultaneously.
