Humbird’s music moves between experimental folk and environmental Americana to embrace the unexpected. The music invites a refreshing dissonance into the house. It leaves bread crumbs along the path and reflects light back at the stars.

Siri Undlin witnessed the power of storytelling in her childhood home and began writing music and performing in church choirs and in Irish ensembles from a young age. Her voice, which contains the unwavering fortitude of hymnal melodies, reveals her traditional background.

In 2019, Humbird released the critically acclaimed, debut full-length, Pharmakon, which introduced us to Humbird’s songcraft and harmonic folk style. Folk Alley called the album “... an absolutely hypnotic listening experience." and Atwood Magazine described it as music wrapped in “gentle rebellion”. The release garnered millions of online streams and a wide range of accolades, including 89.3FM The Current’s “Best Local Albums Of The Year”, one of City Page’s “Picked To Click” Awards, “Best Minnesota Albums” from the Star Tribune, and as an official showcasing artist at SXSW in Austin.

Most recently, the material on Humbird’s sophomore record Still Life (October 2021) has already received enthusiastic praise from within the folk world – awarded as one of Kerrville Folk Fest’s New Folk winners for 2021.

Humbird and producer/engineer/multi-instrumentalist Adelyn Strei recorded the album (mostly) at home in South Minneapolis while sheltering-in-place in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. The Minneapolis Uprising of June 2020 unfolded in their neighborhood, and as the acute crisis of burning buildings and military occupation came and went, the two returned to music while reframing and reimagining the future along with neighbors, friends, and family. Still Life is not an overtly political album, more so it is an effort to understand hope as a verb, and healing as a physical place we might inhabit.
