Birds on a Wire is the project of singer Rosemary Standley (voice of Moriarty) and cellist Dom La Nena. The two artists weave an entire universe built around song and emotion. A symbiosis that allows them to take back, in their own way, musical monuments ranging from Fairouz to Bob Dylan.Two voices and a cello, that’s all it takes for Birds on a Wire to immerse us in a universe as refined as it is moving.
The words that escape the duo – in French, English, Italian or even Arabic depending on the song – seem to be sung for us, in the hollow of our ears. We find this feeling of intimacy in Birds on a Wire , a first album published in 2014.On the stage of the Concerts Volants ,Rosemary Standley and Dom La Nena come to defend a new album called Ramages .
In this opus published at the beginning of the year by [PIAS], the duo once again have fun hijacking songs from all over the world: “Wish you were here” by Pink Floyd, a traditional Breton song, “Les berceaux “by Gabriel Fauré, a Russian folk song… Nothing can resist Birds on a Wire.
