Bird Call premieres Video for "Waltz in the Snow" + kicks off tour

Bird Call premieres Video for "Waltz in the Snow" + kicks off tour

Bird Call, the work of Brooklyn musician (but San Francisco native) Chiara Angelicola, landed number 75 on the Deli’s Best New Emerging Artists of 2010 poll (the full results can be seen here). She grew up listening to her mother play music, serenading people with a plastic microphone throughout her childhood. Before moving to New York in 2009, Angelicola rocked the Bay Area scene, winning honors and showcasing at the International Folk Alliance in Memphis, Tennessee. Bird Call’s new EP of cover songs, "Other Creatures", was released in the spring, marking the second time Angelicola has collaborated with Joel Hamilton, producer of music giants such as Elvis Costello and Tom Waits. Haunting and nostalgic, endearingly sincere and mindblowingly creative, her music ranges from a warbling pop sound to morose and elegant pieces. The Deli is premiering here Bird Call's new video for "Waltz in the Snow", the song that won her the International Songwriters Competition award as judged by Tom Waits and Peter Gabriel among others. Bird Call will kick off her summer tour with Johanna & The Dusty Floor with a show at The Knit on August 2.
