We are an organisation dedicated to the promotion and continuation of progressive and experimental music in Australia.
Formed in 2008 by Michael Solo & Alexander Tulett, Bird’s Robe has grown to accommodate artist management, bookings, releases, publicity and tour promotion both nationally & internationally.
Art rock, prog, post-rock, pop-prog, jazz-metal, avante-garde, psych-rock, post-metal, electronica, chiptune, noise-rock, fusion, tech-rock, crescendo-core, new dirt, experimental rock are just some of the many descriptions used to define the music we enjoy & promote. The one thing it all has in common: it’s music we like. Give it a listen & we hope you’ll like it too.
What the hell are you?
In the development of the music scene we love, BRC acts as a label, promoter, publicist, agent and management.
Since 2008, we’ve orchestrated over 300 shows, pushing amazing left-field, Australian and international artists. Bird’s Robe have created and produced Sydney’s FeatherFest, Space Prom and Progfest events, the Australia-wide MENAGERIE festival, championed international touring acts including UK legends 65daysofstatic, Japan’s Ruins-alone, Vampillia and Ningen Dogs Orchestra, US acts This Will Destroy You, Caspian, The Protomen and f*ckjazzforaminute, as well as hosting tours and album releases by sleepmakeswaves, The Red Paintings, Anubis, Pirate, Meniscus and many more.
In 2010 we launched Bird’s Robe Records (BRR), assisting local and international acts with distribution for their releases, as well as sponsoring collaborative recording projects between musicians, released under the series moniker “The Bird’s Robe Collaboration Band.”
Why the hell are you?
The Bird’s Robe Collective came about through an almost complete lack of promotion for progressively minded or influenced bands in Sydney, leaving these groups very few options for support. This collective was started to bring those bands together to help each other, whilst maybe even making a name for themselves and their music.
Our resume includes an assembly of similarly motivated musicians, artists and bands with half a mind to slap you silly with progressive and experimental music, aiming to keep you entranced long after the last chord has faded.
Who are the hell are you?
BRC continues to be run by Mike Solo

OK so what does “Bird’s Robe” mean?
Not much at all! It’s a title intended to create imagery. It also makes it easier for us to design posters.
We’ve worked with and promoted a lot of artists over the past few years.
There are a smaller number of acts who are exclusively part of our management, bookings & label roster. You can check them out over at the ‘artists’ tab.
There is a far larger number of artists whom we support or have supported in some form or other.
