Maybird with Jonathan Sexton
Fri, April 28, 2017, 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM EDT
Maybird was born in the summer of 2013 when singer/songwriter Josh Netsky performed at a small concert in the woods of upstate New York called the Stone Mill gathering. It was there that serendipity brought Netsky and his brother (drummer) Adam Netsky together with long-time guitarist Sam Snyder and new addition Kurt Johnson – and things clicked.
Mostly recorded in the basement studio at the Stone Mill, as well as various apartments in the Rochester area, their debut ‘Turning Into Water’ EP paints a picture of the sonic array that resulted from that night. The track ‘Big Sun Explosion’ was discovered by Danger Mouse and released on his label 30th Century Record’s first compilation in late 2015. The EP’s release followed shortly after. Currently, the band is recording a follow up LP and exploring some new sounds.
Knoxville Native Jonathan Sexton crafts songs a perfect blend of attitude, emotion, and wisdom.
