Former lead singer of The Senate, Nick Drummond, has been on a great journey since his days with The Senate. Traveling and working on his solo material, along the way he was reunited with Tyler Carson, a fiddle player who used to play on occasion with The Senate. It’s funny how life works out that way. I got to know these guys personally but separately (as Tyler was still living in Canada until almost a year ago), so when they told me they were collaborating together, to say I was thrilled would be an understatement. As individuals these guys carry their own amazing energy and together, it’s beautiful. They basically combine almost all my favorite things: acoustic guitars, amazing vocals, beautiful lyrics, a fiddle, and music you can groove to.
As they were putting together their first CD at Robert Lange Studios, I was lucky enough to join them one evening to get a sneak peak. Watching the guys collaborate and have so much fun together was a real treat. Really sweet guys with genuine appreciation for their fans/art. Their exciting energy was hardly forced and just after finishing mixing their first song “Here I am”, we rocked out to it in Tyler’s car before calling it a night and letting the guys get back to work. Back then they didn’t have an official name yet…they were Nick Drummond and Tyler Carson…but now they’ve debuted themselves as Impossible Bird. Here’s one of the first videos of them during a garden house show last summer:
Together, they will release their first CD together at The Q Cafe in Seattle on Saturday, April 28 at 8:30 p.m. If you haven’t caught them yet, I’d make plans to be there. I wish I could be there in person…but I’ll have a glass of wine to them back here. The Seattle Weekly apparently dubbed them “Seattle’s next big musical duo” so grab your ticket and check them out!
