The name "Bird Sounds" dates back to 2010 when Grant Simmons began using it as an outlet for his solo post rock material. The name came from his pet bird who, due to thin walls in his house, can be heard singing along on all his early demos in the background. Bird Sounds became a duo when Grant starting playing with Connor Castro in the fall of 2011. Slowly, jams became songs and recording started. The duo's first EP was released on July 11th, 2012 titled "Bird Sounds EP." After that, the creative process went slowly. It was quite some time, especially with Grant's involvement in Rat Trap, until work on a new project came about. Recording of a new album started in late summer of 2013 along with music videos. The new album, "The Engineers of Alma", is to be released March 21st, 2014. Find our releases on bandcamp at
