Biography

Taking its name from a Leonard Cohen song, Birds on a Wire is a duo featuring Franco-American singer Rosemary Standley, known for her membership of the band Moriarty, and Brazilian poly-instrumentalist Dominique Pinto, known as Dom La Nena (cellist, guitarist, pianist and percussionist), who has collaborated with Jane Birkin, Étienne Daho, Camille and Piers Faccini, among others. After recording a debut solo album in the latter's studio, Ela (2013), the musician teamed up with Rosemary Standley to develop a project nourished by their shared tastes for folk, bossa nova and baroque music. Released in 2014, Birds on a Wire's debut album includes covers of songs by Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, John Lennon, traditional South American, Lebanese and Reunionese tunes, as well as Henry Purcell's O Solitude, My Sweetest Choice (Z. 406), popularized by British countertenor Alfred Deller. Busy with their respective activities, the two artists reunited in 2020 to follow up their adventure and record the album Ramages, featuring songs by Pink Floyd ("Wish You Were Here"), Jacques Brel ("Sur la place"), Chico Buarque/Gilberto Gil, Gino Paoli, Gabriel Fauré, Violeta Parra or Nazaré Pereira ("La Marelle", based on the novel by Argentinian writer Julio Cortázar).
