Wounded Bird is a Denver, Colorado based duo comprised of singer Molly Orlando and singer/guitarist Scott Warren. Their sound is a harmony-focused blend of Americana, folk and roots music. Orlando and Warren met and grew up outside of St. Louis, Missouri in St. Charles, a river town known for being the launching point of Lewis & Clark’s expedition into parts unknown. After college, the pair ventured off on their own personal journeys with Orlando settling in Boulder, CO and Warren in Los Angeles, CA. Over the years the two remained in contact with their shared love of music providing a common thread. In Boulder, Molly fronted the alt country band The Whiskey Bottles and the soul outfit The Who Do’s. Warren did the same in Los Angeles as a solo artist and with the folk rock band Signal Hill Transmission (ATO Records). He also composed for film & tv projects, most notably the Miramax Films opening logo music and the score to the Harry Connick Jr. and Willie Nelson film, Angels Sing. In 2016, Scott relocated to Colorado and from there, Wounded Bird was born.
The pair released their debut EP, "Fools & Clowns" in 2018, following that up with a handful of intimate, stripped-down singles. Their track “Don’t Tell Me” was featured in the Denver tastemaker publication 303 Magazine with Ellie Herring writing, “Wounded Bird’s release is a Americana and country-influenced song about the denial of heartbreak. Singer Molly Orlando and singer/guitarist Scott Warren harmonize on vocals to deliver a message that anyone can relate to. The pain in the truth of the message is concealed by the beautifully crafted and stripped down melody of Warren’s guitar for a single that’s a bittersweet touch to the soul. Listen if you like Jason Isbell.”
The group continues to write/record and perform throughout Colorado and the Midwest.
