T Bird a.k.a. the musical wonderkid Tim Crane is the gravel-voiced front-man of criminally underexposed Texan heavy funk and soul outfit T BIRD & THE BREAKS who released their debut album "Learn About it" in 2009. The band have dropped a number of breaks-heavy funk nuggets since it´s release and now "T Bird Is Good For You" sees Crane stepping out on his own.


Given that he’s a man who loves his hip-hop as much as his funk and soul, it’s no surprise that Crane ends up at the place where G Love, The Beastie Boys and indeed his own band intersect. The album is a walk through the garden of P-Funk, Oldschool Hip-Hop, Dr.John´s Voodooed landscapes as well as Gospel Hymns and Soul/Garage 60´s style.


All in all it´s a fantastic album rooted in the whole American Music Underground culture from the 50´s and up to this day. An evergoing party. It´s good for you.
