This article profiles Andrew Bird, an alternative rocker who sometimes plays as a one man band, or with his group Bowl of Fire, or as part of Squirrel Nut Zippers. A Chicago born violin prodigy since the age of four, Bird now discusses his progression from the jazz and soul of the artists he admired to experimentations with minimalist chords to evoke a sound he didn't know was in him.
