James Michael Rodgers

As a musician I find it very important to play with as many other musicians as possible. On my new record I have some beautiful and true musicians on it. Two wonderful Gjembi players 'Osmon and Paul' who I met busking in Ashton lane. I have two amazing musicians I borrowed from the wonderful 'Big Hogg', flute player Sophie saxon and Richey and the wonderful rhythm section and lead guitarist from my musical brothers 'Harry and the Hendersons'. My music is based on the thoughts and emotions i've had during the past two years of travelling, loving, fearing and learning about people, life and music. It's of great importance to me that the music and lyrics are true. This is also important for the production process and this is why I sought the hands and ears of Luigi Pasquini of 'how to make sushi records' for the record. We recorded most of the parts live and using as little effects as possible, with some important over dubs to add to the arrangement of the songs. It has been a long process due to some technical and personal problems but the record itself took one week to record and mix and should be available on Vinyl, download and CD in the next few months. Until then I will continue to play anwhere and everywhere that has me. Any information you want about my music and bookings just ask.

Dorothy Bird

Poetic and heartfelt Indietronica / Art Pop explores the beauty and honest fragility of being

Dorothy Bird (Indietronica/ Art Pop). Dorothy bird’s music creates spaces in which her voice can shine a light out of the dark. Using a mix of analogue synths, electronic rhythms, guitar, strings and skilful arrangement, Dorothy treads a bold path between the intimate and the epic, the ethereal and the concrete, from deep sub bass movement to glistening vocals and delays and often in combination with live visuals, she guides her audiences through an all encompassing and emotional experience.

Julia Fiebelkorn aka Dorothy Bird (DE) lives and works as a composer and singer in Berlin and Liverpool. Before studying music, she studied a few semesters philosophy, German and Bulgarian literature and worked as an actress and director of musical and scenic readings at theatre TIK in Berlin. She studied vocal jazz music at the University of the Arts in Bremen. She writes all the songs for her band Dorothy Bird (Indietronica / Art Pop) and composes stage music for interdisciplinary projects with music, visuals, poetry, dance and acting and for the Center for Moving Art ZBK, an artistic project with social responsibility for an inclusive society.

Julia has performed her music and stage music at international music and art festivals such as 48 Stunden Neukolln 2015, 2016 2017, Threshold Festival Liverpool, Expat Expo 2017 and in Wintergarten and Chamaleon in Berlin. In 2016, she received a one-year artist's residency in Liverpool, where she has lived and composed until the autumn of 2017. She gave concerts a.o. in Grüner Salon Volksbühne, B-Flat, Kunstfabrik Schlot, Kaffee Burger, SO36, Lido, Haus der Sinne and other venues in Germany and Europe. In 2011 and 2014 she released her stage music for the ZBK, 'Beziehungsweise'' and 'Switch.auss welt innen', and the music for the new show 'EinzigARTig' will be released for the premiere in June 2018. As Dorothy Bird she has released the EP 'Falling Awake' in 2015 and the single 'Flowers' in 2017. Her new EP 'Out of the Dark' will be released in January 2018.
