On this episode of INSIDE MUSIC, host James Shotwell chats with Cory Lockwood, vocalist for the band A Lot Like Birds. Fans of alternative rock are likely familiar with that name already, but for those who have yet to discover A Lot Like Birds picture a rock band unafraid to push themselves and their audience with each new release. That is what has always made A Lot Like Bird a band worth investing in, and their upcoming record – Divisi – is no exception.
Cory and James chat largely about the four years that have passed since the last A Lot Like Birds album and all the changes that have occurred in that time. Divisi is the first record from the band where Cory handles lead vocal duties, and that also plays a large factor in our conversation.
Really though, this episode is about perseverance and finding a way to live with yourself. A Lot Like Birds have learned what so many artists never do, and that is the simple fact that all success starts with personal satisfaction. You can rest assured if they are releasing something it is the best they could create and they absolutely love it. Their passion breeds their fans’ passion, and the support from their fans pushes them forward.
The music on this week’s episode of Inside Music is pulled from A Lot Like Birds’ new album, Divisi, which arrives in stores on May 5. The song we have chosen is titled “For Shelley (Unheard)” and we think it gives you a good idea of what the band is going with this record.
