Kites & Crows - "Muddy Waters" & "Start Again"
Caruso, the band's main songwriter also plays guitar and sings. Baldwin brings his talents on the banjo, accordion, lap steel, mandolin, chord organ, and vocals, while Martin adds her cello expertise to the group as well as the vibraphonette and vocals.
The band's use of varied and eclectic instruments create unique and attractive arrangements like the staccato yet melodic flow in “Muddy Water.” And, the lovely melody and the smooth vocals on “Start Again” from the trio's newest effort and self-produced EP Golden Room released November 2010.
Formed with the help of Shakespeare, Kites & Crows took their name from a line in Coriolanus when the banished Coriolanus is asked where he has been hiding, he replies “ … Under the canopy … In the city of kites and crows.”
