THE BIRD AND THE BEE ON TOUR - OPENING FOR LILY ALLEN
The Bird And The Bee, the L.A. duo made up of singer Inara George and keyboardist/producer Greg Kurstin, have announced that they will be the opening act for British singer Lily Allen on 22 upcoming concert dates throughout the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada. Kurstin, a prolific producer and multi-instrumentalist who has worked with Beck and The Flaming Lips, also produced and co-wrote three tracks (Everything's Just Wonderful, Not Big, and Alfie) on Allen’s debut Alright, Still, which was just released by Capitol Records in the U.S. The Bird And The Bee’s self-titled debut was released January 23 to rave reviews. The New Yorker called the album "a sure delight" and Amazon posted a particularly apt description: "As intoxicating as a Brazilian breeze and ironic as a David Lynch night in L.A., the bird and the bee make a soothingly hip, deliriously cool blend of pop."
