About VIVA BIRD - September 28, 2010

    VIVA BIRD is a musical side project mix of instrumental, electronica, soundtrack, experimental, electro pop, indie, kitchen sink...The band's debut record is called Traffic and Trees and was released on Sept 28th 2010. The collection is unique in that normally songs are written and then recorded. Traffic and Trees was written as it was recorded, a much more "see what happens" approach to creating a record. The project was a nice break from the guitar dominated music of Caution Cat. The original intent was to use only two keyboards, a bass guitar and a drum machine but that changed when the ideas started to take form....... some tracks needed guitars! There is also lots of acoustic and electronic percussion with a wee bit of uke.
