KEN MICALLEF –  (Electronic Musician)

Sweeping strings, gorgeous sonics, and soulful singing—Birdsong at Morning is the greatest act you’ve never heard of. Folkie/conjurer Alan Williams is this trio’s driving force, his yearning vocals leading arrangements that recall Alan Parsons and Dan Fogelberg, recorded within a lush soundfield. “The Great Escape” recalls a muscular outtake from Prefab Sprout, “Midnight Vespers” a Yes-like choir madrigal, and “Pages,” a hearth-ready acoustic finger-picker swooning with intimacy and grace.
