Since 1996, he has released 15 studio albums, as well as several live albums and EPs, spanning various genres including swing music, indie rock, and folk music.

He went on to start his own swing ensemble, Andrew Bird’s Bowl of Fire, which released three albums between 1998 and 2001.

Andrew Bird quotes :
Honestly, I didn't have the patience for biology or history in an academic sense, but I always liked the kind of big questions.Andrew Bird
What's cool about indie rock is that one band can do effectively the same thing as another band, and one band nails it, and the other one doesn't. I like that elusiveness.Andrew Bird
