Black Bird Hum

My Side

RESPECT | Black Bird Hum 1

Black Bird Hum is a blend of roots reggae and dub, wound together with captivating hooks, solid grooves, and striking harmonies, resulting in a type of big-band reggae that throws everything at you from horns to percussion to tripped-out synths and delay-drenched keys.

As well as supporting Arrested Development (USA) the band has shared the stage with the likes of The Original Wailers (JAM), J Boog (US), Third World (JAM), Black Slate (UK), Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Collie Buddz (BER), Kingfisha, Six60 (NZ), King Tide, The Strides, and Bobby Alu.

Combined with a run of festival performances that includes a 2019 spot on the prestigious Goa Sunsplash in India, as well as Caloundra Music Festival, Nimbin Mardi Grass & Nimbin Roots Festivals, back-to-back Peats Ridge Festivals, and FBi Radio’s Reggae Carnival, their reputation for an impressive live show continues to grow.

Accolades include being hailed as ‘one of the highlights’ of the inaugural Australian Music Week (AU Review), finalist nomination at the MusicOz Awards (blues & roots and acoustic singer/songwriter), winning the Australian Hard Rock Café Mash-Up comp, and also nabbing a gong at the Australian Independent Music Video Awards (Innovation).

Relentless tourers, the band has spent the last four years traveling up and down the Australian east coast – all the while writing away new music in the back of the van.

Black Bird Hum’s latest single release is ‘My Side’, a love-gone-wrong track that includes a wikkid dub trax. IRIE invites you to stream ‘My Side’ and add it to your favorite chill playlist! Why? My Side’s infectious beat and melody will capture your soul and transport you to a place that’s IRIE! You’ve been warned.
