Due to poor recording, it's a bit difficult to hear this singer/songwriter piece clearly, but there is some truly nice talent and style behind John A. Wilkes III's simple song "Tiny Birds." His voice is humble and warm, and blends nicely with his acoustic strumming and picking, the only instrument in the song. This song sounds like it could get very nice feedback in the open mic café scene...now all he needs is a good recording engineer. "Don't clip the wings of tiny birds, we can teach them how to fly/ listen to their hearts behind their words/ love them when they laugh, and when they cry." The song seems to be about protecting our society's more delicate energies, rather than controlling/dominating them. Reminds me just a little bit of Benjamin Hoff's "The Te of Piglet," about the value of the small.

"Tiny Birds" is reminiscent of well-known artists such as

Bill Callahan
