In 2001, The Gallows Bird was formed in response to that uncontrollable urge to do something other than wait tables and drink cheap beer all summer. It was a project without intention or direction or any semblance of foresight; three guys recording songs for piano, flute and guitar onto a dirty four track, then overdubbing percussion by banging on cardboard boxes and slapping out-of-tune banjos. The result was a charming mess, burned onto CD-R for anyone who would listen, with little personal messages scrawled on the disc in permanent marker — “Good luck in the fall!” and “Thanks for everything, Mom.”

Gallows Bird was produced in an unquantifiable CD-R edition. It is also available as a free download.
