The Stray Birds new release Best Medicine out on Yep Roc Records. Chock full of story-filled lyrics and smart harmonies, interwoven with wonderfully separated string lines and strums, this album offers some heartfelt creativity. The musical prowess of The Stray Birds is apparent here, as the instrumentation is artfully arranged and vocals never trip over each other. Complemented by thoughtful dynamics and masterful storytelling, Best Medicine should be your next favorite album of 2015. Co-produced by the band and Stuart Martin, the album features 12 tracks, including 10 original compositions and two traditional songs, "Pallet" and "Who's Gonna Shoe." The band - multi-instrumentalists and vocalists Maya de Vitry, Oliver Craven, and Charlie Muench - hails from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. All three are classically trained musicians who've been making music of all kinds since childhood. However, they were also all raised with a steady diet of music ranging from pioneers like The Carter Family and Bill Monroe & His Blue Grass Boys to the joyous invention of The Beatles and The Band, to the groundbreaking artistry of Jimi Hendrix.
