There's music in all things, if men had ears

Music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your instrument

 

If in the after life there is not music, we will have to import it.

 

Without music life would be a mistake.

 

Play the music, not the instrument.

Bio

Bird Stevens born in 1971 and started to play bass when he was 17 years old He started a band called The Jitterbugs one off the first bands that introduced the West coast style in Europe In 1995 he joins The Blackbirds a bunch of good friends playing American roots music from the 50’ 60’ what resulted on playing a lot of Big roots festivals and recordings From 1997 until 99 he also played with the well known Belgium cajun,tex-mex band called Last Call. In 2000 I started a new band named after the big four beat off the new Orleans music The Big four aka TB4Q (swing groove lounge jazz) at that same year i was also asked by Otis Grand (UK) to join his band what resulted in several tours in countries like Finland ,Sweden, Spain,UK… In 2002 Al Copley (USA former Roomful of blues) asked Bird join him during his European tours for 2 years as a session musician Bird played in several bands like Rj Mischo , Teddy Morgan ,Sax Gordon , Gene Tailor,Enrico Crivellaro, Nico Backton,Jason Ricci , Karen Carroll, Elmore D, T Bird Rhythm ,Big Jay McNeely… Birds bass playing style is best to be described as “the glue that keeps the whole thing going” He is the kind of bass player that you only hear that he’s there when he stop playing…just the right touch at the right time Bird bin influence by bass players like Willy Dixon ,Keith Ferguson (The Fabulous Thunderbirds) , Herb Gordy (Red Prysock)…
