Album Notes
"Climb Yourself Up" was named one of the Top Ten Local Releases of 2008
by Pat Ferrucci of the New Haven Register, and this is only the first solo release by songwriter Jennifer Dauphinais, aka Ponybird. Climb takes a chronological journey through songs written in the order that appeared on Earth. Not only that, they were recorded in the same order as I learned the recording process, alone, guitar and drums in hand. Other instruments soon followed as I taught myself bass and piano during the proces, and expanded my experimentation with vocal harmony. A new video for “Let Something Fall Apart" is available on our myspace page, and You Tube.

"These sparse folk tunes are spooky and smoky, dark but warm, the kind that would sound best on a back porch sometime in mid-September with a bonfire crackling and a cooler nearby. Every song is played in 3/4 time (think waltz), each with its own trance-inducing properties. The arrangements are simple and therefore shine — there's no extraneous instrumentation."
- Mike Sembos, New Haven Advocate

About Ponybird:
Named after heralded hit song "Jennifer Juniper" by Donovan, I was brought into the world by two musical parents. One, a church going folk singer who treasured Janis Ian, and two, a rock rebel with his guitar in a cardboard box and a penchant for Ian Hunter. My musical life (or life as a musical perhaps), was destined to be an adventure of oscillation and inspiration. As a wanderer, I have had the honor to share community with several native traditions, including African and Native American, as well as harmonic tonal singing, which continue to be deeply influence and inspire my creative endeavors. As a Musician, I have played drums with local heavy rock bands: Belle Starr, Spider & Fly, the Editors, and cut my teeth on folk performing in the Karner Blues with Christina Abbott. Being so closely involved with grassroots music helped me to generate a contagious momentum to create music of my own, solo, (with a little help from guest performers). I am currently working on a full length LP expected for release in 2009.
