Andrew Bird is an indie rock multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter.
His career, which began in earnest in 1996, has produced over a dozen studio albums, as well as several live albums and EPs, spanning various genres including swing music, indie rock, and folk music. He is primarily known for his unique style of violin playing, accompanied by loop and effect pedals, whistling, and voice.
In the '90s, he sang and played violin in several jazz ensembles, including Squirrel Nut Zippers and Kevin O'Donnell's Quality Six. He went on to start his own swing ensemble, Bird's Bowl of Fire, which released three albums between 1998 and 2001. Weather Systems (2003) was his first solo album and a departure from jazz music into indie music.
Beyond his own record releases, he has collaborated with various artists, including The Handsome Family, Dosh, and Nora O'Connor.
He has also had a career in film, as a soundtrack composer as well as an actor. He appeared as Dr. Stringz in a 2007 episode of "Jack's Big Music Show." In 2010, he appeared on a TED Talk performing his music. He wrote and performed "The Whistling Caruso" for The Muppets movie in 2011, and composed the score for the television series "Baskets," released in 2016. In 2019, Bird was cast for the fourth season of "Fargo," playing a character written specifically for him named Thurman Smutney.
