Album Notes

"This is the album I've been the most afraid to put out," says Orit Shimoni, AKA Little Birdie, about a new collection of 11 songs recorded completely acoustically and bare bones. "Folkey" has always been implied in what I do, but since everyone expects a girl with a guitar to produce soft delicate songs, up until now I have at least gone for layers of darkness, and a 'big' voice," she smirks. "I guess I'm finally comfortable being naked."

She oughta be by now, after two full years of no fixed address and touring solo, by public transportation, across Canada and Europe, facing bars, festival crowds, house concert hosts and attendees all on her lonesome.

"People have been asking for this," she explains. "Until now, it's been impossible for me to say no to the opportunity to add musicians on recordings. How can I resist the generous talents that have graced my songs so far? But people have been asking for something that's "just me", and I finally felt ready for it."

The songs on "Bare Bones" are not solo renditions of previously recorded material, but eleven, previously unreleased songs. "I'm not sure if they seem more intimate to me because of how we approached their recording, or if I intuitively chose songs that felt more vulnerable, but it's definitely scary for me to share them this way," she confesses.

"This album bares no pretense..... It goes out in gratitude to all the people who have seen me in my vulnerability as a solitary wanderer, and who have wrapped their generosity and encouragement around me like a warm blanket on a cold night."

This is the Little Birdie CD I've always wanted.
This is the kind of Little Birdie CD I was wishing existed when I bought an album of hers last night, and then this morning to my surprise and excitement, she released this! This is what Little Birdie sounds like in her moving solo acoustic sets. The songs feel intimate, and showcase Orit's voice, guitar, and songwriting better than any of her recordings to date. I think the only way this album could be better was if it was twice as long and included every one of my favourite songs.

(I also really like her existing albums, to be sure, but there's something special about just her guitar and her voice, and there are some songs here that have been in her touring setlists but not yet available for purchase.)

Highly recommend!!!
