When the phone rang (2008)

A mash up of folk-Americana and synth-pop. Sounds weird, but it kind of works!

The Wind-Up Birds

BIOGRAPHY

The Wind-Up Birds came together through the wonders of Craigslist, expressly for the RPM Challenge. Janelle writes simple, lo-fi folk songs and Nick brings them to life with his synth-pop brilliance. Throw in some strings from Wendy and banjo from Jack and we've got ourselves a band.

BAND MEMBERS
Janelle Randazza (vocals, words, melodies, rhythm guitar) Nick Szydlowski (vocals, words, melodic mix-ups, master-minding, guitar, rhythms, etc., etc., et. al) Jack Tar (banjo, music smarts) Wendy Mittelstadt (four-stringed savior)
