Reviews

"Melding folk, country and Americana in to a tasty, affable gumbo, The Odd Birds offer up likable tunes with an imaginative sound...If you’re a fan of wellcrafted vocal harmonies and jangly rhythms, The Odd Birds will delight with their earthy sentiment and seasoned musicianship."

--Brian M. Owens, Metronome

"While so many youngsters buy a buckskin jacket, Gibson Jumbo and wear their fringe like Roger McGuinn ……. they forget they have to have lived their life to the max; before their songs become authentic …… and that’s were The Odd Birds really come alive. 
These songs sound believable; and have the capacity to live with the listener for a long, long time …. if not forever."

--The Rocking Magpie 

"The Odd Birds' wonderful debut release Better Days is a wonderful and breezy Americana release that exudes a warmth and sense of purpose in tune with the fast-moving track listing. The acoustic folk rocker "Better Get Outta Town" opens the EP, impressively introducing the duo of singer-guitarists Ron Grigsby and Jennifer Moraca — both of whom sing and play guitar. The countrified "Jenny-Lynn (Won't You Come Home)," uplifting "Fly" and yearning "Better Days" showcase their endearing sound. A tender cover of Lowell George's "Willin'" and Gram Parsons' "Return Of The Grievous Angel" further elevate the EP. In addition to his excellent production, Bobbo Byrnes adds some stellar guitar and organ work on the disc" 

--Robert Kinsler, Rock N' Roll Truth

"The sound of "The Odd Birds" is characterized by the acoustic instruments and harmony vocals. This "Better Days" brings us back to the 70-ties of more delicious folk rock songs. Songs full of layered guitars and light percussion in the vein of Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris and songwriting reminiscent of classic country and the country / rock sound of Laurel Canyon from the 70s."

--Rootsville.eu

"[Better Days is] a successful blend in the context of the genre Americana, with a very relaxed, peppy and harmonious expression that breathes the good old sound of the West Coast."

--Wolfgang Giese, Musik an Sich

"Good folk rock songs that easily and well performed will be a nice overall concept on this truly delicate album."

--Micheles Kindh, Blaskan
