THE SHOREBIRDS ARE NOW ON ROTATION ON SIRIUS CHANNEL 26 'LEFT OF CENTER' CALL AND REQUEST! 877-33-SIRIUS!! THANKS.. The Shorebirds play utterly charming/ neo-pop with a dark lyrical underbelly, familiar yet new. Combining the melodic rhythm of Roxy Music melded with the happy sing-along sound of Echo and the Bunnymen run over by the Cars, The Shorebirds are not a band that you can walk away from, at least not quietly. Mark Ephraim, the Detroit-bred singer's deep, velvety voice draws comparisons to Lou Reed and David Bowie yet still has the sense of humor to include lyrical give props from Bill Callahan of Smog to dancehall popstar M.I.A. Ephraim has opened for Cheap Trick, Lemonheads, Dandy Warhols, and Queens of the Stone Age. The band consists of Sara Press on bass, David Moltz on lead guitar, Greg Acampora on drums. The Shorebirds offer a breath of fresh air, with a little exhaust on the side, to restore the lost faith in well crafted, timeless songs. 'Ribbon' is a must for any cutting edge music fan who seeks dark pop music along the lines of Interpol, The Strokes, Trex, The Arcade Fire, Dead Meadow, The Flaming Lips, Echo and the Bunnymen, Beck, even Johnny Cash. Recorded and produced by lead singer, Mark Ephraim, who's engineering credits run deep in the New York and Detroit music scene (Dead Meadow, Grand Mal, Mouse, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Melanie Shelley, The Gnomes, Turner Cody) The end of the CD even includes bonus instrumental tracks. Have a private Shorebirds Karaoke party with a hairbrush and a mirror, it's okay, we have all been there!
