If you've never caught their show at Rhythm & Vines, this is your chance to experience the sunny original sound of Blackbird. Blackbird, have been in and around the NZ music scene since 2003. A summer project for Hamish Pinkham and Kyle Bell has now turned into more than just a hobby with regular performances at some of NZ’s festival events and tours with international artists. Each summer “The Birds” - as they are often called – meet up with new tunes and ideas which express each individual’s flavour and influence and apply it to the flocks of chicks that attend. Blackbird has been establishing a solid loyal fanbase with a collection of soulful folk songs like the popular "East Coast Toast" and "Free Up Your Love" which embody the influence of the East Coast and all that the lifestyle brings. Blackbird consists of singer songwriters Kyle Bell and Hamish Pinkham, with Helen Corry, Jack Castle and Nego Beto from Brazilbeat Soundsystem joining the nest.
