Turkey The Bird is New Zealand's answer to "Simon & Garfunkel" if "&" was a musician too. Catchy folk songs with stunning rich melodies and effortless smooth lyrics. Songs that tell uplifting stories about love and life.
Hailing from the New Zealand left coast town New Plymouth, this uplifting band will hit you with beautiful three part harmonies and toe tapping rhythms.
The bearded trio features Andre Manella from Switzerland on guitar, bass and percussion, Adrian Whelan from Ireland on guitar, bass and spoons, and Sol Bear Coulton, the token kiwi, on Banjo.

Everybody Needs a Little Sunshine: That's Turkey The Bird's very first single release off the upcoming debut album (May 2021).
"Everybody Needs a Little Sunshine" is indeed a burst of sunshine through the clouds of our post Covid 19 pandemic!
The song speaks for itself with its splashes of imagery in its lyrics. From "Dating the vicar's daughter" to "Out on a desert highway", you're taken along on the ride and love every minute of it.
This very talented band have refreshing tight harmonies which enhance Manellas relaxed vocal style on this song, projecting the fun they're having.
Seeing these guys perform live is a treat which leaves you with a smile on your face, as you can see and feel the warmth of their performance.
