WATCH: Special Consensus and Friends, “Blackbird”

Artist: Special Consensus and Friends (feat. Dale Ann Bradley, Alison Brown, Rob Ickes and Amanda Smith)
Hometown: Chicago, Illinois
Song: “Blackbird”
Label: Compass Records

In Their Words: “We are super excited to be premiering the video for our new single ‘Blackbird’ with our friends at The Bluegrass Situation. This song has been a favorite of our producer Alison Brown for a long time and, when she suggested it to us, we thought it would be the perfect way to introduce our newest members Greg Blake and Michael Prewitt to the fans. We released the single in early spring on Compass Records and are thrilled to be sharing the new video this week. A big shout-out to our special guests Rob Ickes, Dale Ann Bradley and Alison for joining in on the video shoot, and to Hannah West for standing in for Amanda Smith who was out of town when we filmed. (Be on the lookout for a cameo from Amanda in the video.) ‘Blackbird’ is the first single from our 21st band record which is scheduled for release in early 2023. We are thoroughly enjoying being back to touring and recording with our new lineup and we can’t wait to share our new music with everyone!” — Greg Cahill
