Glamour hit the nail on the head when they described SSDB as what you get when you cross Amy Winehouse and Tina Turner with Mick Jagger and a dose of the Squirrel Nut Zippers. It’s big-city grit and down-home sweetness together with a bit of Americana.

Sister Sparrow is Arleigh Kincheloe – lead singer and principle songwriter who works out melodies and lyrics on the piano before bringing them to the 8-piece, all maleband The Dirty Birds. When you see them live, you won’t believe that such a dynamic, powerful voice comes from such a tiny lady (often clad in leather and sequins).

Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds have opened for Fitz and the Tantrums, Counting Crows, the Neville Brothers, Dr. John, and been on a three week run with Allen Stone that culminated in an Austin City Limits late night set.
