Combining classic americana with elements of world music plus a good helping of roots rock, Birds of Chicago’s latest album Love in Wartime (2018) establishes that they really are worth listening to. Birds of Chicago comprise a couple, Allison Russell, vocal and guitar, and JT Nero, vocal and guitar. Allison Russell is Canadian, while JT Nero is from the US midwest. Both have experience in other bands before they joined up in 2011, releasing their first album, Birds of Chicago, in 2012. A showcase at Folk Alliance in Memphis in 2012 was an important fillip for the duo, followed by diligent touring and several recording releases. In 2017 they began studio work on Love in Wartime, songs of optimism, love and hope in these turbulent times. The producer is Luther Dickinson of the band North Mississippi Allstars. Their only Danish festival appearance in 2019.
