Dead Bird Lady is a solo cathartic folk project led by French-Mexican multi-instrumentalist, based in Stoke-on-Trent, England.
From the project‘s creation in Iceland in 2018, to the transition to France and finally finding a home in Staffordshire, Dead Bird Lady slowly morphed into her final shape, merging her fascination for folklore and alternative music with a mix of string instruments and electric effect pedals.
You may hear in her bewitching vocals and harmony-drenched melodies the echoes of artists such as Tori Amos, Grizzly Bear, and November Ultra.
And what about this name? Dead Bird Lady’s tale is a long story involving an old Icelandic house, a stuffed ptarmigan and emotional reconstruction. Dead Bird Lady is Laura’s alter-ego, the one who dares sing all her secrets out loud.
Her new single Pollen is coming out on 20th October 2023, a first chapter to her upcoming EP “The Granny House“, set for release at the end of the year.
