Over the last few years, Alex Bird & The Jazz Mavericks have become one of the biggest names on the Canadian Jazz scene. With praise from around the globe, Bird, alongside songwriting & piano partner, Farncombe, has created timeless and heartfelt originals for a modern audience. This talented team has produced something that is completely unique; three original albums in three years. Their sophomore album “You Are the Light and the Way”, backed by their “Jazz Mavericks”, was nominated for “Best Vocal Jazz” at the 2022 JUNO Awards.
Bird and Farncombe’s latest album, a duo record, dropped as a surprise of 11 originals entitled, “Songwriter”. Kira Grunenberg at DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE wrote, “Impassioned messages sung and played from one’s heart but worn on a well-dressed sleeve. “Songwriter” is an elegant, romantic, and well-executed gem of a record.” The album was nominated for “Best Vocal Jazz” at the 2024 JUNO awards.
Also in 2022, Bird & Farncombe wrote and released Canada’s Thanksgiving anthem “The Sweetest Moments” which received a national ad campaign across Canada, with interviews on CBC, CTV, and other major news outlets. In September of 2023, Alex, Ewen, and “The Jazz Mavericks” headlined The Sudbury Jazz Festival and finished it off with a workshop for emerging artists.
In addition to heading back to The JUNO Awards, 2024 will see Bird & Farncombe collaborating with Latin Grammy Winner & Grammy Nominee, Cheo, on an all-original Bossa Nova EP entitled “Casanova Bossa Nova Lover Man”.
“In this world, of ordinary singers, extra-ordinary singers, I’m glad there is Bird.” – JAZZ WEEKLY (USA)
