Welcome to Bird’s Robe.

Bird’s Robe is dedicated to the promotion and continuation of progressive and experimental music in Australia and around the world. It’s a management company, a record label, a booking agency, a tour promoter, a publicist, a publisher, a blog & probably a few other things.

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 400 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 such as:

65daysofstatic (UK)

…And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead (USA)

Ningen Dogs Orchestra (Japan)

Ruins-alone (Japan)

The A Band (UK)

The Protomen (USA)

This Will Destroy You (USA)

Bird’s Robe has also hosted tours and album releases by sleepmakeswaves, Closure in Moscow, We Lost The Sea, The Red Paintings, Meniscus, Toehider, Troldhaugen, Pirate, Anubis, The Crooked Fiddle Band & 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.

Since then we’ve evolved to help the artists we love take their music to a wider audience and help like-minded fans of this music continue to enjoy listening to and seeing these musicians.

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, recommend or have supported in some form or other.
