The debut solo album from veteran songwriter and front-woman of The Ragbirds is a real departure from the percussive upbeat sound of her heavily touring band. These are private moments scooped up with two small hands and spread out in layers of strings, voices, piano and words. Zindle, who is known for her creative energy and endless smiles, has taken the listener into a smaller quieter world where pain slips through the cracks and the raw edges are left to show. The songs speak of strange experiences, loss, internal wrestling, forgiveness, family, nature and despair. With the exception of a guest bassoon and bagpiper all the instruments are performed by Erin herself. Scenes from the Fragile Agile Avian World is an 8-song journal of a feathered traveler.
