This is a special live interview with Humbird (Siri Undlin). It took place on the last day of her tour at Green Note, Camden, London. There’s a live recording of “On The Day We Are Together Again” with l u k e c a l l e n There’s also the album version of “Pink Moon for John Prine” from the amazing “Still Life” album from 2021.
“The places that I’ve learned from and the people who’ve changed me are inherently part of the music and have shaped me and my understanding of myself.”
Humbird is the genuine article, a beautiful singer and a phenomenal songwriter who explores what it means to be a musician in this modern age. Humbirds music and lyrics explores with an infinite passion and curiosity, the human condition and an honest exploration of love, loss and happiness. Songs such as “Pharmakon” and “Pink Moon for John Prine” showcase a unique ability to meld together melody and melodrama in equal measure.
Siri is passionate about songwriting and for her it’s an infinitely ineffable mysterious process and one which she’s not really interested in figuring it out as it takes away some of the fun out about it.
Siri has been writing music since she was nine or ten and has always been pretty focussed on performing and is one of those weird people who wanted to do this as long as she can remember.
Siri has been travelling all over the States and believes you have to be willing to meet people where they are at, you don’t have to do that but for Siri it helps to turn up to a place without preconceptions and see what happens. The more relaxed and open Siri is the better experience it is.”
