Birdsong At Morning was formed in 2007 by Alan Williams, Darleen Wilson, and Greg Porter as a means of resurrecting musical identities that had been set aside while pursuing other careers. Focusing on Alan’s songwriting, and featuring the subtle instrumental interplay and gorgeous vocals of the group, Birdsong At Morning has now established itself as a singular, chamber-pop ensemble, often including Alan’s arrangements for string orchestra into the mix.
Alan and Darleen have been a couple for over 25 years, and Alan and Greg met in their teens, attending New England Conservatory together as well as playing in formative bands Danse Real and Knots and Crosses (with Ben Wittman, a frequent collaborator for Birdsong as well). The 4-CD debut box set Annals of My Glasshouse was released in 2011. The follow-up, A Slight Departure (available as a CD/Blu-ray package with mixes in stereo and 5.1) was issued in 2015, and their most recent album, Signs and Wonders was released in 2018, also as a CD/Blu-ray package in both stereo and 5.1, with a music video for every song on the album.
