Greetings Friends and Patrons!  We are Small Birds of Sound, a family trio of artist-musician-writer-creators.  We write songs and create lovingly tended soundscapes from philosophical, fantastic, surrealist, humorous and sometimes absurd musings.  We are kitchen-table culture workers - creating and sharing is our philosophy for good living!

The adults among us - Jessica and Christopher - began our creative journey together by collaborating on songs, soundscapes, installations, and multimedia art productions for live theater in 2009. Back in the day, Jess created and directed plays and short films, composed fictions and poetry, and played Northern California surf music. Chris was a co-founder and multi-instrumentalist with the now venerable - though still notorious - college-radio darlings Camper Van Beethoven, and has devoted many years to teaching music and recording and performing songs for children and families.

All the while, we have both been quietly filling our notebooks with songs, stories, and projects which grow impatient for a hearing - and we can't wait to share them with you!

Chris and Jess collaborated on Rosie in 2010-11, who truly creates some of the best and most amazing songs, sound pieces, and visual works that Small Birds of Sound has to offer. In true Rosie-fashion, she is stoked to share her Rosie-creations too!

Small Birds of Sound is truly a family business; music and art-making as a cottage industry. We are so grateful for your support!
