With extraordinary three-part harmonies, The SongBirds is a supergroup comprising three of the world’s finest vocalists: Mexican-American Erica Canales – a long-time touring member of The Killers, Guatemalan Latin Grammy winner and nominee in the 65th Annual Grammy Awards Gaby Moreno and Australian-born Emmy and Grammy nominee Dannielle De Andrea.
Brought together by their love of singing, fashion, film and times gone by, The SongBirds’ signature sound has huge crossover appeal for audiences across genres including folk, soul, jazz, blues and Americana.
Award-winning songwriters, The SongBirds have recently released their debut album, ‘Dreamers Dream On’, which serves up the soundtrack to a fantastical world where the 1920s meets the 2020s. The album is a delicious smorgasbord of original and vintage songs featuring production and instrumentation by the cream of the international music community including Erik Kertes (Michael Buble), Drew Taubenfeld (Lil Nas X, Charli XCX, Kacey Musgraves) and Larry Goldings (John Mayer).
An accomplished singer and songwriter, Erica Canales currently provides backing vocals for The Killers and has sung live and/or in studio with Sir Elton John, Chrissie Hynde, Brian Wilson, Gwen Stefani and Ben Harper. Erica has performed at major festivals around the world (including Glastonbury) and recently appeared on international TV performing a duet of the song Runaway Horses with Brandon Flowers on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Born and raised in Guatemala, Gaby Moreno is an award-winning singer-songwriter, producer and composer. Gaby’s voice and songwriting was recently showcased in the Oscar-nominated film Puss In Boots: The Last Wish- the song Por Que Te Vas was written and recorded in Australia shortly after Gaby’s appearance at Womadelaide’s 30th Anniversary. Gaby has released an orchestral album with Van Dyke Parks and duetted with Jackson Browne, Hugh Laurie, Andrea Bocelli, and Star Wars actor Oscar Isaac.
Australian-born, Dannielle De Andrea’s voice is woven through Aussie music history. She has achieved chart success in the UK and Australia and worked with Australian artists such as Guy Sebastian, Kylie Minogue, Glenn Shorrock and most famously John Farnham. International acts on her resume include Ariana Grande, Jackson Browne, James Brown, Joe Cocker and she’s currently touring with Joe Bonnamassa.
