We’re in Europe – recording, gigs, video…..

I arrived in Amsterdam a few weeks ago, and all is well.  We’ve begun recording more of the 2nd album, starting with two of the more recent tracks I’ve written, ‘Dancing in the Midday Sun’ and ‘Candied Lady Love’.  With some lush electronics slotted in, I cannot wait for the finished product.

Last weekend we headed to the Taribush Kuna festival in Dwingeloo, in the Dutch province of Drenthe.  A beautiful festival, we were looking forward to returning again this year.  We made some new friends – fire breathers/forest cleaners, the Greenthingz, and Basque country musicians (Tristan Crowley and his band).

Home sweet home

Portrait photo Sophie KinstonWe’ve been home from Europe for six odd weeks now, and you’d think that we’d want to put our feet up and rest… But instead, we’ve been working on this beautiful little video of Sophie giving the low down on Tailor Birds.

We challenge you to find a musician who’s as passionate about she’s doing as this one is!


Ola’s incredible footage

Tailor Birds & Ola Szmidt @ Chilled In The Field festival 2014 on Vimeo-1It’s often hard to put into words how magical some of our experiences are when on tour. The festivals in particular have their own glorious madness.

That’s why it’s so wonderful to be able to share this gorgeous footage from our show at the UK’s Chilled in a Field festival in August this year.

Ola Mesmer, you’re such a clever thing—thank you!


But wait, there’s more

Our tour officially finished last week but we’ve been having such an amazing time that we just couldn’t bear to end it.

We’ve extended our tour with some last minute shows booked in Zurich and Amsterdam. Keep an eye on our tour dates for details. We’d love to see you one last time before we leave Europe (for real this time).
