Bird in the Belly is a collective is made up of solo artist Jinnwoo, folk duo Hickory Signals and instrumentalist Tom Pryor. Together they spent 12 months recording songs and stories that have either never before been recorded or are rarely recorded - all set to contemporary folk music, in the hopes of reintroducing these songs back into the folk canon. The resulting debut album 'The Crowing' was released March 2018, to rave reviews:

"Folk album of the year so far."  *****  Martin Townsend - Editor, Sunday Express (25 March 2018)

"Strong folk a-cappella singing - distinctively contemporary and earthy vocalising - haunting fiddle playing - timeless acoustic guitar picking - and classic rocking rhythms" 4/5 - Colin Bailey, R2 Magazine

"A musically diverse, fresh and compelling set of songs [...] a fascinating debut from a distinctive new group" - Songlines Magazine (June 2018)
