Babybird é uma banda britânica formada em 1995 e liderada por Stephen Jones, que também tem álbuns solos lançados usando seu próprio nome. Jones começou a escrever canções e gravar demos caserias como parte de um grupo de teatro experimental em Sheffield. Uma coleção dessas demos, I Was Born a Man, foi lançada em julho de 1995, sob o nome de Babybird. Ele recrutou uma banda composta por Huw Chadbourn (teclados), Robert Gregory (percussão), John Pedder (baixo) e Luke Scott (guitarra), a fim de fazer uma tour para promover seu trabalho. Durante 1995, mais dois álbuns demos foram lançados sob o nome de Babybird (Bad Shave e Fatherhood) e mais dois em 1996 (The Happiest Man Alive e Dying Happy). Babybird assinaram com a Echo Records (uma divisão da Chysalis Group), e o primeiro single autêntico, a banda completa gravou “Goodnight”, que havia aparecido na demo Fatherhood, foi lançada em julho de 1996, se tornando um pequeno hit nos charts britânicos (UK Singles Chart). O segundo single do grupo, “You’re Gorgeous”, alcançou o terceiro lugar no Reino Unido em Outubro de 1996, e foi um dos maiores sucessos de venda naquele ano, entrando nos charts ao redor do mundo. Contudo, foi apresentada ao público uma face mais comercial comparada aos trabalhos anteriores de Stephen Jones, assim como em comparação ao resto do material do álbum Ugly Beautiful. O álbum ainda teve mais dois hits “Candy Girl” e “Cornershop”. Babybird voltou, sem o tecladista Huw Chadbourn, em 1998 com There’s Something Going On, seguido do single “Bad Old Man”. O álbum teve um sucesso modesto e foi seguido de hits menores, “If You’ll Be Mine” e “Back Together”. Em 2000, um line-up formato por Jones, Scott e Matt Hay criou o terceiro álbum. Bugged. As vendas foram pobres e os dois singles dele, “The F-Word” (mais tarde seria o tema de Gordon Ramsay’s, programa britânico de culinária de mesmo nome) e “Out of Sight”, mal entraram nos charts. Babybird deixaram sua gravadora logo depois. Um terceiro single do album “Fireflies” / “Getaway” foi lançado pela Animal Noise, mas vendeu poucas cópias. A banda consequentemente se separou...

Babybird is a British band formed in 1995 and led by Stephen Jones, who also have solo albums released under their own name. Jones started writing songs and recording home demos as part of an experimental theater group in Sheffield. A collection of these demos, I Was Born a Man, was released in July 1995 under the name Babybird. He recruited a band composed of Huw Chadbourn (keyboards), Robert Gregory (percussion), John Pedder (bass) and Luke Scott (guitar), in order to take a tour to promote his work. During 1995, two more demos were released under the name Babybird (Bad Shave and Fatherhood) and two more in 1996 (The Happiest Man Alive and Dying Happy). Babybird signed with Echo Records (a division of the Chysalis Group), and the first authentic single, the full band recorded “Goodnight”, which had appeared on the Fatherhood demo, was released in July 1996, becoming a small hit on the British charts (UK Singles Chart). The group's second single, “You’re Gorgeous”, reached third place in the UK in October 1996, and was one of the biggest selling successes that year, entering the charts around the world. However, a more commercial face was presented to the public compared to Stephen Jones' previous works, as well as to the rest of the material on the album Ugly Beautiful. The album also had two more hits "Candy Girl" and "Cornershop". Babybird returned, without keyboardist Huw Chadbourn, in 1998 with There’s Something Going On, followed by the single “Bad Old Man”. The album had a modest success and was followed by minor hits, "If You’ll Be Mine" and "Back Together". In 2000, a line-up format by Jones, Scott and Matt Hay created the third album. Bugged. Sales were poor and his two singles, "The F-Word" (later to be the subject of Gordon Ramsay’s, British cooking show of the same name) and "Out of Sight", barely made it onto the charts. Babybird left their label soon after. A third single from the album "Fireflies" / "Getaway" was released by Animal Noise, but sold few copies. The band consequently split up ... [Source: wikipedia]
