Album Notes
Strangebyrds refer to their style as "blue collar folk". Devil's And Desires is their third original duo release. The album was produced by Moors & McCumber. The songs on the new album range from current events such as "Dream I Made" about the disappearance of small farms in the mid-west and throughout the U.S. to songs about Emily Dickinson's wishes upon her death-"White Dress" and the plight of children on the east coast who were put on orphan trains and sent out west to start a new life away from their families -"Orphan Train" to the sweet and etherial "Howl At The Moon" and "Owen Woods" an instrumental featuring piano and cello-written as a tribute to one of the artist's father.

Strangebyrds, Cari Minor & Ray Smith, have a synergy built on well honed harmonies and spot on guitar playing. They perform songs that are insightful, thought provoking and relevant to our times. Their self titled release "Strangebyrds" was chosen as a top ten local release in 2011 and their second release "Migration" garnered several accolades including a 4 out of 5 star rating from the Marquee Magazine and Amazon.

"Strangebyrds have been charming and wowing audiences near and far for several years with their down-home harmonies and natural musical synergy"-The Camera. Boulder, CO

"Strangebyrds are a true gift to the ears, the duo has a knack for tight arrangements and keen production. There are moments when the two singers voices blend and induce chills". -The Boulder Weekly
