ABOUT US

The Talking Bird Collective can provide live music for any occasion and in any venue. Whether you are looking for a jazz pianist to help evening diners relax, or a seven-piece soul band for a party venue, we offer a bespoke service tailored to meet your specification.

We have received excellent feedback from our Cardiff-based clients, with Ellora Adam (Café Jazz, St. Mary Street) describing us as, ‘part of the fabric of Café Jazz… fantastic people to work with.’

Talking Bird Music is unique because of the collective we work with: conservatoire-trained, professional musicians who pride themselves on producing events of sublime quality.
