SOM Review: Mrs. Greenbird

Over 200.000 units sold, two ECHO nominations, debut album peaking on number 1 twice, gold record, second album “Postcards“ produced in the legendary RCA Studios in Nashville/Tennessee, a Live Entertainment Award (LEA) for the best clubtour 2013, subsequent tours with Katie Melua, Anastacia and Oscar-winning actor Tim Robbins, 7-digit clicks on Youtube & Spotify, it goes on and on and on…

Sure, this might be an appropriate tactic if one attempted to grasp the two charming musicians Sarah Nücken and Steffen Brückner, a.k.a. Mrs. Greenbird. But research is not done by looking at the symptoms. So, what is the reason for Mrs. Greenbird‘s success? Basically it‘s quite simple: The duo focusses on the music first and foremost. Their amalgamut of Americana, Alternative Country, flawless Pop, and tasteful folk-elements neatly fills the gaping void within Germany‘s musical landscape.

This unassuming blend is being carried by Sarah‘s intense unique and crystal-clear vocals, their beautiful harmonies and Steffen‘s unmistakably american, highly sophisticated fretwork.

So now album number 3 is lined up, and Mrs. Greenbird left their nest in Cologne/ Germany and went soul- and song-searching in London, Stockholm, Nashville and Berlin. It was on last year‘s longest day in Stockholm that they had their very own midsummernight‘s dream. And the result is Mrs. Greenbird‘s new single “One
Day in June“. It is fleet-footed and weightless, brimming over with vitality, and
was produced with great care for detail in the band‘s own recording studio, mixed
by Craig Alvin (Kasey Musgraves). The duo‘s style matured, yet they managed to maintain their uniquely own trademark sound they summed up in one simple word: singersongwritercountryfolkpop. Having just finished their tour with Clare Bowen (leading star of the hit TV-Show Nashville), Sarah and Steffen captured a perfect summer hitsong for us, in essence right in between Nashville and Cologne, a feeling of summer‘s zenith. The longest day of the year, when the sun simply refused to set.

And while “One Day in June“ undoubtedly carries their thumbprint, it also marks Mrs. Greenbird‘s status quo as artists and in their career: residing in a blooming field of magical songs that now carries new crops that allow us to remember. One day in June.
