Cut Throat Finches. An ironic name for a tiny bird, and conversely, for a band with a giant sound. Singer-songwriter Sean Russell, a proud resident of the Ft Worth, Texas music scene, formed the band mid-2015 with a group of much-lauded players from the area, all of whom were involved in various projects of their own.

With Cut Throat Finches, affection for eclectic music runs deep – as almost a proud obsession of the obscure – and their connection in the studio (their debut LP tracked live on analog tape), blends together like a well-crafted adult beverage. Each flavor to be savored as familiar sonic hints come in waves, with finishes that tend to beg for the next long drink.

Unlike so much of the digitally disposable music today, Cut Throat Finches lay out a trail that plays like a soundtrack to an epic film, a myriad of styles, intended for bigger story.

Cut Throat Finches will release the full length album, “Reality” in 2016 under Dallas-based, Hand Drawn Records. And by album, the band really means album, set to release in vinyl-only format for sale to the general public with limited streaming available only for promotional purposes.

For 2016, the band will begin a midwest tour starting late summer, then the UK for fall 2016, where Russell has toured successfully in previous endeavors. // //
