SEABIRD SIGN RECORD DEAL WITH EMI'S CREDENTIAL RECORDINGS
FOUR SONG DIGITAL EP MAKES FANS OF BANDS, CRITICS
Band Booked for Major Summer Festivals and Plans for Full-length Release

Seabird Nashville, TN—Newest Credential Recordings signing, Cincinnati’s Seabird, has recently released a four song digital EP, Let Me Go On. The EP includes three songs produced by Jaquire King (Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse) and Allen Salmon (Mute Math, This Beautiful Republic). Also included is a remix of lead off track “Let Me Go On.” The song was given the remix treatment by producer Chad Howat (Paper Route, Brooke Waggoner, Oceans Above).

The band has also wrapped up recording of its full length debut, ‘Til We See the Shore, which will release in summer 2008. Of the album lead singer Aaron Morgan says that “all of the songs on the record are about real life struggles, relationships, losses, bittersweet goodbyes, and finally having the courage to tell your childhood sweetheart you love her.”

Chris Hunan, talent booker at Cincinnati club The Underground, a long time Seabird supporter comments, “Seabird pierces the darkness of the monotony of music out there. They have a sound that washes you clean of the same old, same old.” Hunan hasn’t been the only one noticing as the band has been sought out for supporting slots for artists such as Aqualung, Lovedrug, The Myriad, Sleeping at Last, and more, as well as selling out their own headlining shows in the band’s hometown. The Myriad’s John Roger Schofield adds, “They have melodies that actually make you feel like you're swimming in a summer river out in the clear, crisp, delicious mountains, rather than diving into murky bilge… They elevate the soul.”

Chris Bergman of Pause Magazine has been an early critical advocate for the band and their music saying that “Seabird brings us back to actual, tangible music. They remind us of our need to hear it.” Bergman isn’t the only journalist impressed with the bands sound; Matt Conner of StereoSubversion.com calls the band’s music “pure ear candy.”

Seabird will be taking their “candy” on the road this spring and summer. Summer festivals already confirmed as tour stops include Creation East and West (main stage performance slot), Cornerstone Festival, Purple Door Festival and Alive Festival.

The band will be joining other local bands at Cincinnati’s 20th Century Theater on Sunday January 27th as the headliner of the benefit concert for Invisible Children. Show starts at 5pm. Tickets are available at the venue for $10 with all proceeds going to Invisible Children.
