The Stray Birds are Maya DeVitry, Oliver Craven and Charlie Muench. This Lancaster-based folk trio will be releasing their second CD and first full-length album The Stray Birds on July 21 at a special intimate CD release concert at The Community Room on Prince. If you haven’t purchased a ticket to that show you’re out of luck. It sold out within days of the original announcement. But, you can pre-order the new album at their website now, or pick up a copy after the release on Saturday.
UPDATE: The Stray Birds is available now here.
It’s been well over a year since I talked with Oliver about his music. At that time, this band was only a part-time collaboration between friends. Now The Stray Birds is the primary focus for all three members. It was a real pleasure to have an opportunity to chat with the band and preview a few of the tracks from the new record before they head out on a national tour that will carry them through the rest of the summer and well into the fall.
Scroll to the bottom of this post to hear the interview and songs from The Stray Birds, the brand new full length album from Maya, Oliver and Charlie!
