Bio

The Hunting Birds are a five piece folk-rock outfit from Fremantle, Western Australia.

Taking the folk qualities of yesteryear and pairing it with honest performance and writing - The Hunting Birds have made their mark, as they look to becoming one of WA's finest exports.

The genre benders draw influence from a multitude of styles and fashions to blend with their folk personas and keeping their authenticity undoubted. From the pop filled "From The Ashes", rock-country "State of Mind" and now the introduction to the darkened, gloomy and unsettling "Burn This House Down".

Over their short tenure, the group has reached some great heights. Supporting acts like Ball Park Music, British India, Little May and Sons of the East. In 2017, they featured on Fremantle's inaugural Falls Festival lineup, did their first tour of Australia and in April will be supporting American folk-rock superstars The Lumineers in their hometown Perth.

------------------------------------------------
"Twice now have I seen The Hunting Birds live, and twice have I gone away immensely satisfied. When introducing track State of Mind, measured drumming filled the air, before the sweet harmonies of vocalists Kendra Fewster and Connor Minervini were unleashed. Soft guitar work soon amalgamated into a flurry of sound, the band’s high synergy with one another palpable." - Jai Price, Lost Magazine
------------------------------------------------
"The bass and drums team up to create an underlying path for the band to sit over and the electric creates these beautiful little Jeff Buckley type blues licks that puts the cherry on top of this flawless five piece." - Keeley Connolly, Rabbit Radio

It's a little bit country, it's a little bit rock 'n' roll! Slightly dark little number here, I can picture this on the soundtrack or on a trailer for a horror film.
