"In his current incarnation as Bird Streets, Brodeur is knocking the ball out of the park."   -Blurt

“Betting On The Sun [is] one of the album’s standout tracks. You’ll dig it no matter which coast you’re on."   -Magnet

"An immediate home run . . . will capture the hearts of every lover of melodic pop-rock sophistication.”   -Power Of Pop

Bird Streets is the musical endeavor of New York songwriter John Brodeur. The self-titled debut album, out now on Omnivore Recordings, contains 11 tracks written and performed in collaboration with Jason Falkner (Beck, Jellyfish, Daniel Johnston). It’s a dynamic collection of introspective indie-rock and power-pop that draws liberally on the music of decades past without being bluntly nostalgic, with Brodeur’s voice like an old friend you’re meeting for the first time.
