A Lot Like Birds / Bio

A Lot Like Birds is a troupe of seven kindred yet wildly different souls from Sacramento, California. Founders Michael Franzino and Michael Littlefield, multi-instrumentalist and bassist, after growing out of respective ska and punk rock scenes, collected an eclectic group of musicians from miscellaneous genres and projects: originally intended as guests on Michael and Michael’s debut album, “Plan B,” Cory Lockwood, screamer, and Ben Wiacek, guitarist (of post-hardcore project, Discovery Of A Lifelong Error), Athena Koumis, violinist (of folk-rock project, Life as Ghosts), Juli Lydell, vocalist/keyboardist, and Tyler Lydell, drummer (of experimental-folk project, The Dreaded Diamond), one by one, all unexpectedly became integral units of the project, banding around the Michaels.

After nine months in the studio, A Lot Like Birds released their debut album Plan B in late 2009, receiving rave reviews from publications near and far. Running with the warm welcome they have received, the band is currently putting together a tour covering California, Oregon and Washington for the summer, recording an acoustic version of one of the tracks featured on Plan B, and returning to the studio later this year to record their sophomore album.
