A Bit About Us

Based in Ann Arbor, MI, Chirp is a four-piece band that does its fair share of genre-hopping, but often plays in the styles of progressive rock/funk and jazz-fusion. Officially formed in Fall 2015, Chirp mixes originals and covers into their live sets and puts together grabbing, dynamic shows. Though their music features many technical and progressive elements, an equal emphasis is put on grooving and keeping people moving.

Their fresh and unique sound has taken them across Michigan and the surrounding Midwest to play a wide array of venues and festivals. They released an EP called "Live From Brownstown" in 2016, and video of a live session recorded at Willis Sound in Willis, MI in 2017.  Both of which have been met with great reception and have helped to build an enthusiastic fan base. Music is available on all major streaming & downloading platforms. Catch Chirp live in 2018 and stay on the lookout for a full-length release!
