Invisible Bird: Endsley, Devine & Amendola Trio

Invisible Bird is a guitar, trumpet, and drum trio collectively led by three engaging artists from the Bay Area—Scott Amendola, Shane Endsley, and Dave Devine. Together, their distinct compositional voices craft original music that transports the listener from rootsy back beats, to anthemic indie rock, to acoustic modern jazz, to ambient electronica.

Shane Endsley – trumpet, whammy bass, electronics
Dave Devine – guitar, effects
Scott Amendola – drums, percussion, electronics

Formed in 2017, Invisible Bird broadly employs the use of electronics to branch out from the raw acoustic trio sound. Trumpet and guitar take turns covering bass lines, and all three players create swirling digital textures with a hefty collection of boutique stomp boxes. Invisible Bird also reinvents the classic repertoire from artists like Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell by integrating new hits from artists like Bruno Mars and Rihanna. To be released in the spring of 2018, the group’s debut album, Flutter to Fuzz, features cameos from special guests Sam Amidon and Orenda Fink (Azure Ray).
