After releasing his stunning debut album Come Back To Us
(Brushfire Records) under the moniker Release The Sunbird
, Zach Rogue
of Rogue Wave
will be taking his new project out on tour this month. In addition to bringing the new songs to cities for the first time with Release The Sunbird
, he will also be playing a very special set at this year’s Outside Lands Festival on August 12th.
Release The Sunbird
is a side project, but it’s not. Release The Sunbird
a solo project, but it’s not. This musical departure showcases a whole new side of Rogue
, and is a re-introduction to an artist you thought you already knew. Rogue, who has spent years on the road with his band Rogue Wave
touring with the likes of Death Cab for Cutie
, Nada Surf
, The Shins
, Jack Johnson
and many others, is one of independent music’s most reliable musical voices. Come Back To Us
, which was recorded on a whim in Bloomington, Indiana, is sun-kissed, joyful and one the loveliest you willhear this year.
Live, Zach and vocalist Kate Long deliver captivating performances that are magical and heart-wrenching.
