Album Notes
Hummingbird Syndicate is a collective of like-minded musicians, led by singer/songwriters Lynn Shipley and Jon Macey. On Pop Tricks they shift deftly between a dynamic power pop jangle and a softer, folk/rock shimmer. Most songs feature three- and four-part harmonies and a 1960s/70s vibe, blending sunny Laurel Canyon folk and East Coast urban pop with an edgy dash of early ‘70s British rock. All of this is delivered with a modern twist by veteran musicians drawing on myriad musical and cultural influences.

A unique aspect of the band is the ‘syndicate’ – along with Macey on lead vocals and guitars and Shipley on lead vocals, the core unit features Chris Maclachlan on electric and upright bass and Lenny Shea on drums. A wealth of guitarists allows for depth, layering, and a variety of intriguing combinations. Dan Coughlin, Tom Hostage, Andy Hollinger, Steve Gilligan and Jim Melanson all appear on the album and are equally adept on electric and acoustic guitars, mandolins, mandolas, 12-strings, and B-Benders. Contributing to the beautiful harmony sound are vocalists MaryJaye Simms and Jennifer Lewis Bennett.
