We've previously mentioned Blackbird Blackbird a few times, but just to recap, this is the project by San Francisco's Mikey Maramag. His latest EP is called Boracay Planet, and it was released last October.
Check out his new video called "It's a War" (single taken from Boracay Planet) at YouTube. The video stars Australian pro surfer Thom Pringle and model Shenay Carey (wow at skinny little legs!).
Anyway, there's some exciting news involving Blackbird Blackbird - he's just kicked off a brand new tour with STRFKR (Starf****r) last night (Tuesday, February 26th). The tour will take him all over the place, including some dates in the UK in April.

Introducing... Blackbird & the Storm. This is the stagename for Marie-Juliette Bird. No location details, I think she is either in London or "American West".
Her debut single, "Broken Wings", can be heard at soundcloud.com. The single is taken from her album, Songs For A Drowning World, to be out April 8th, 2013, via Ed Records.
