Birdbrain

Birdbrain is a foolhardy humanoid fowl who's song is imitated by Brendan Demet on guitar and vocals, Michael Ritter on bass, and Paul Westfahl on drums. Blending harmonic and rhythmic elements from jazz fusion with pop sensibilities from alternative rock and electronica, the music is catchy yet complex, composed yet improvised, and classic yet modern. From simple to symphonic, no sonic territory is out of reach for Birdbrain.

 

Conscious Congress

Conscious Congress is a fresh funk project featuring ANDII on lead vocals, Patrick Van Bibber on guitar, Brendan Demet on bass, and DearlyLoved Matthews on drums. Between the songwriting styles of ANDII, VB, and BD, the originals are frequent and diverse, complimented by classic covers from funk lords of old and more modern pop.
