Austin, TX — T Bird and the Breaks, the 10-piece Austin soul/funk band with monthly releases of original songs on real vinyl — "one of Austin's most rapidly rising soul groups, known for infectious, full-bodied grooves," says Austin360.com
T Bird and the Breaks bring with them a fedora full of new music, scorching songs like "Monkey in the Trees," featuring the raw power of songwriter and front man Tim "T Bird" Crane's lead vocal (a boy obsessed by a bad girl) punctuated by dashing horns, echoing backup singers and burping guitar; and "Shackles and Chains," with its simple lyric about love and the devil and gangster horns and guitar that escalate the funk — the two sides of its March single release.
After the band's first album, LEARN ABOUT IT — called "one of the year's best local debuts, [a] hooky slice of soul perfection" by Austin American-Statesman music writer Patrick Caldwell in his Austin360.com feature on soul bands — fans were eager for more, and Crane obliged. The 45s are available at Waterloo Records & Video in Austin, at the band's live shows and on its Web site, and as digital downloads.
The band's singles campaign is leading up to its next album, Crane tells Spinner.com, sometime this year
