Janie Price, aka Bird is a half English, half Irish London based singer/song writer and multi-instrumentalist and will release her third album, Figments of Our Imagination on August 14, 2015.
Figments of Our Imagination showcases Bird’s musical prowess as she plays every recorded instrument on the album herself. The album was produced by legendary Rolling Stones board-man Chris Kimsey in London and mixed by Lee Groves in New York.
Bird’s velvet vocals compliments each track of Figments with her raw sometimes melanch
oly look at the concept of isolation and relationships. The use of the cello played by Bird echoes throughout the album.
Bird recently released a video for haunting lead track, “The Dare” saying, “It’s is about the invisible line along which we all walk and the video was directed by a dear friend who wanted to explore the concept of isolation the song also suggests. In the video I’m being followed and observed, but I don’t know it. I’m pleading for my sanity, but no one is really listening.”

Bird was six years old when she first picked up a cello and joined the local youth orchestra.
Her professional career started at age 18 with her first recording session composing and recording strings for a UK rap act.
This lead to a session which saw her singing and playing cello with numerous signed artists, notably doing a world tour for internationally acclaimed violinist Vanessa Mae and composing and recording cello for the UK hit artists Just Jack and Emeli Sande.
By 26-years-old Bird launched her first album “The Insides” which received critical acclaim.
Bird’s debut album, The Insides has received critical acclaim in the UK with Q Magazine declaring, “The Insides is an album you need in your record collection.”
In addition to being a musician and songwriter, Bird was also invited to star in a six episode run for Sky Artscalled Art of Survival filmed playing her musical compositions across Europe. She has also written her first book (based on her filmed adventures) titled, A Real Journey, originally printed in 2011 by Beautiful Books.
