The Huntress and Holder of Hands will be joining The Devil Makes Three on tour, and if you’ve ever seen MorganEve Swain live, this is something you do not want to miss. I was first exposed to her unforgettable stage presence when I saw her perform with Brown Bird alongside her extremely talented husband, the late David Lamb, who left us much too early due to the monster that is leukemia. I’ve listened to just about every Brown Bird song on repeat, and I closely followed their love story, which they often shared with fans. I am greatly pleased to learn that MorganEve is using music to express her grief rather than leaving the industry behind. She is now in The Huntress and Holder of Hands, a 5-musician band with cello, string bass, electric bass, voice and drums, with Swain primarily on five-string viola and guitar. Watch below to see their new video for “Creatures in Flight.” It is directed by Rich Ferri and choreographed by ali kenner brodsky & co.
In some of the saddest news to recently come across my desk, it’s come to my attention that Brown Bird’s Dave Lamb has passed away from Leukemia. I’ve been following the band’s journey since their performance a few years ago at The Satellite, and especially since MorganEve announced that the band became sidelined by Dave’s illness. Many fans donated to the romantic and musical duo to keep them afloat while they fought Dave’s disease, but unfortunately, he recently succumbed to his illness. I wish it was possible to articulate the magic of their live performance, but the good news is that Dave’s soul will forever live on through his music. Watch Brown Bird perform ‘Thunder and Lightning’ below, and take some time to discover their music.
