hummingBird’s debut album, Fly
"Alberta-based singer-songwriters Jaime Birch and Sue Chick Denton have put their considerable talents together to create their debut album, Fly, which was released on October 21, 2017. Their band’s name is hummingBird and their songs are as colourful and bright as their namesake, deftly exploring universal themes like love, the passage of time, and the beauty—and trials—of life.
Birch’s and Denton’s distinct songwriting and singing styles blend together as smoothly as coffee and chocolate, with a sound reminiscent of Dala and Indigo Girls.
Each woman contributed several songs to the album. From this starting point, they collaborated on each tune, adding harmonies and guitar, ukulele, harmonica and other instruments to enhance each song, proving the adage that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
There’s plenty of emotion here, but it never gets overwhelming, thanks to the tuneful melodies and lovely harmonies. With songs that linger sweetly in your head, Fly makes a great addition to any acoustic playlist."
