Austin's T Bird and the Breaks are a big, funky, band with hornsm female singers that swing-it-while-they-sing-it, a fire-in-the-hole rhythm-section of drums, bass, guitar, and keys, and a possessed gravel-voiced front-man. With roots in the Funk and Soul music of the late 1960's and early 1970's, they can't be strictly classified as a throw-back. The original songs belie lyrical influences such as Beck. Or Bob Dylan and the swagger of their live show pays homage to the positivity of golden-age Hip-Hop. They've been invited to play shows with artists as eclectic as The Flaming Lips, The Funky Meters, Sting, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, and Galactic.
