Backyard Birds performs a wide range of music, from Americana, country, pop and soul to a sprinkling of jazz standards and originals, in a fresh blend of three-part female vocal harmony and acoustic arrangements. Linda Baker (vocals, acoustic electric guitar), Jean Catino (vocals, tenor ukulele), June Coha (vocals, soprano ukulele), Larry Prather (bass) and Linc Russin (mandolin) love to rediscover and "uncover" great, overlooked songs. The three women's close-knit harmony singing, Russin's cool mando solos, Prather's expressive bass lines, and the band's eclectic material have drawn comparisons to the music of Rosanne Cash and the T Sisters.

Backyard Birds shows often include songs they love by Carlene Carter, Anna McGarrigle, First Aid Kit, Imelda May, the Zombies, Leonard Cohen, Sam Phillips, and the Beatles, among many more, always with new polish on gems they have lovingly rescued from the deep "forgotten song" pile.

With two JUNO nominations and multiple Western Canadian Music Awards under their belts, the Bills are renowned for their instrumental virtuosity, lush vocal arrangements, evocative songwriting, and a refreshing sound that transcends musical boundaries and defies simple categorization.

Strings, bellows, keys, voices, skin and bows - these are the vehicles for The Bills' unique sonic approach. With individual band members sporting world-class credentials in folk/roots, jazz, classical and world music, The Bills truly are a Canadian acoustic music super-group, and their explosive live shows have made them legendary folk/roots entertainers. Whether entertaining an intimate theatre audience, or rocking a festival crowd of 10,000, these five gifted multi-instrumentalists are masters at somehow leaving listeners breathless and revitalized all at once.

"The Bills are the biggest blast of fresh air to come out of Canada since The Band" -Glasgow Herald
"Fiercely unpretentious -and musically splendid" -Boston Globe
