The Hummingbirds

Share

The Hummingbirds are husband-wife team S.G. and Rachel Wood. Born and raised in Detroit, now residing in Tampa, their music is both northern and southern Americana, blending both grit, and self-reliance with hospitality, and charm

They play old guitars through old amps, bang drums, and even pluck banjos sometimes.  Their live stage chemistry and organic duo harmonies immediately captivate and charm audience members while Rachel’s solid command of rhythm guitar, peppered with S.G.’s thoughtful lead work, keep their songs rolling in true Americana form.

S.G. and Rachel were fans of classic country music, as well as myriad of other genres when they started their band in the early 2000’s.  And while they continue to draw on these influences, what comes out in their own songwriting is a hybrid sound all their own, genuine & playful, earnest & soulful.  Their songs twist through tales of loss & heartache, while others whisper sounds of hope, love, and journeys from the road.
