Please allow me to re-introduce myself.

John Brodeur here. Some of you may know me as a solo artist; others, from my bands The Suggestions and Maggie Mayday, or as the guy who plays in everyone else’s band. It’s been about five years since my last record was released, and I have much to share.

Bird Streets is my new project and performing identity: It’s me, but it’s also a live band, an album, and a comfortable blanket under which to place all my original music going forward. The name comes from a high-end real-estate enclave in the Hollywood hills, but also references the streets of downtown Albany, my old homebase.

A few years ago, after my last album was released, I ran off to Los Angeles for a bit of a creative retreat. There, I started writing and recording with my good friend Jason Falkner, whom you might know from his terrific solo albums, or one of his myriad touring or studio gigs (he currently plays lead guitar for Beck). After several trips back and forth from New York over a two-year span, we had an 11-song album that we were both excited about and could not wait to share with the world. Apparently the fine folks at Omnivore Recordings feel the same way because they’re releasing “Bird Streets” worldwide on August 10.

Jason and I played almost all of the instruments ourselves, and we believe fans of either of our music are going to dig what they hear. Special guests include Luther Russell and Miranda Lee Richards.

I’ve worked with PledgeMusic for my last two solo records, and I am excited to work with them again to bring you this new music. In addition to pre-orders of the new LP and CD, we’ll offer lots of exclusives and bundles in the coming weeks, including autographed records and other personalized items. Behind-the-scenes footage and other exclusive content will be posted along the way. All exclusives come with a digital download of the full record. Physical items will be delivered, unless otherwise noted, on or around the official August 10 release date.

By pledging on this campaign, you’ll not only be bringing some great new music into your life, but you’ll be helping us to spread the good word--via publicity, radio, videos, and most importantly touring. This is your chance to be a part of Bird Streets from the beginning. We hope you will join us.

Thanks for rocking with Bird Streets. Please tell a friend about our campaign. And enjoy the new album!

I will send you an LP hand-picked from my personal collection--the very collection you see behind me in the intro video--with a personal note about why I chose and/or love the record. You can guide my hand by telling me a genre or artist that you like, or roll the dice and let yourself be surprised. Either way, it’ll be a good one.
