Halfbird is Brandon Conway (guitar), Grant Pierce (drums) and Ben Kates (sax).
“The other acts were all pretty cool, but I dug Halfbird the most, a three piece (drums, sax, guitar) free improvised noisy jazz combo from Portland. Really aggressive wicked sax player and the guitarist was really cool, had great style.” – http://dorisdayordie.blogspot.com/
Halfbird has released three albums: Crowdwork (2016), Loomings (SDM Records, 2018) and Read to Me (2019). They have a forthcoming split tape with the Social Stomach. https://halfbird.bandcamp.com/
