Having summoned musicians from different corners of the Earth to the humble streets of Minneapolis, vocalist / keyboardist Daniel Fiskum successfully birthed the alternative pop group Fiskum & The British Bluebirds, which is perhaps his most innovative and blatantly kick-ass group to date. Featuring the sick stylings of Bob Phillip on the drum kit, J. Evan LeFreak on bass, and Simon Husbands on the guitar, The British Bluebirds concoct an almost 80’s-like alternative dance energy, with bright, bursting drums, peppy six-strings, and launching synth sounds. Fiskum’s voice bears a Van Morrison-esque bellow, pleasantly invading and dominating the space in which it proclaims. At the end of the day, this group has provided a seriously fresh groove for the Twin Cities music scene. It’s like they say - if you throw enough stuff at the wall, something is going to stick. Fiskum & The British Bluebirds is the stuff that stuck.
