A Light I Can Feel: A Tribute to Brown Bird


A Light I Can Feel: A Tribute to Brown Bird”.

“It’s not every day that a band comes along truly defying classification… Providence, Rhode Island duo Brown Bird are the real deal. Rootsy folk? Check. Stomp-along Russian gypsy jam? Yup. Hints of acoustic heavy metal? Absolutely.” – Paste Magazine

Brown Bird was a beloved band whose founder David Lamb passed from leukemia in 2014. This 2-CD tribute was originally conceived of, and compiled to help raise money for his treatment. Though he had heard most of this album, unfortunately, Lamb passed before it could see release. We’re releasing “A Light I Can Feel: A Tribute to Brown Bird” in 2017 in his memory, to raise money for Sweet Relief, and to continue to share the music of Brown Bird with the world.

This highly-personal collection includes thirty-two interpretations of Brown Bird songs by friends, fans, and collaborators.

Sweet Relief Musicians Fund provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems.
