Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds
"fiery brass- and gospel-infused funk"
- LA Times

Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds is a seven-piece powerhouse that puts a modern spin on classic soul. The band is led by Arleigh Kincheloe (Sister Sparrow), whose astoundingly powerful voice and sly demeanor make for a spellbinding presence onstage. She is backed by the mighty force of The Dirty Birds, a flock of seven men who masterfully lay down thundering grooves and soaring melodies. While each of the Birds are capable of lighting up the stage with jaw-dropping displays of musicianship, it's clear they're all focused on delivering the band's infectious music as a single entity. Simply put, the band's live show is explosive.

"Sister Sparrow, Arleigh Kincheloe's nom de disque, is a soul queen with a voice strong and raspy enough to compete with riffing horns and clipped funk beats."
- Washington Post

The band has earned a reputation as a true road-warrior. Since they started touring in 2011, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds has played 150 shows each year all across the US (45 states so far) and Canada. Along the way, they've racked up a formable list of festival appearances, including Bonnaroo, Firefly, Mountain Jam, Voodoo Experience, Bear Creek, Gathering of the Vibes, Telluride Jazz, and late night sets at Austin City Limits and Jazz Fest in New Orleans. They've also shared the stage with Donald Fagen (Steely Dan) and Warren Haynes at a Midnight Ramble at Levon Helm's Studio, played with Gov't Mule at the Beacon Theatre in New York, and opened for a long list of tremendous acts like The Avett Brothers, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, Dr. John, Fitz and the Tantrums, Counting Crows, JJ Grey and Mofro, moe., Soulive, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and the Funky Meters. Equally at home in the studio as they are onstage, their EP Fight (2013) was produced by Grammy award-winner and former American Idol Judge Randy Jackson.

"Arleigh Kincheloepresides over eight musicians with smoldering intensity, and her body language is as sly and stirring as her bluesy voice"
- New Yorker
