Virginia-based songwriter Meredith Bragg journeys through the origin of flight in his new video for “Birds of North America.” The video can be viewed at YouTube or at the Paste premiere. “Birds of North America” is the first single taken from his  fourth full-length album entitled, Nest out on July 19 with The Kora Records.

In Nest, Meredith pulls from a stream of inspirations including John James Audubon (“Birds of North America”) and Renaissance architecture (“The Last Hours of Brunelleschi“), but his biggest influence was the  recent birth of his daughter, and the themes of parenthood (although initially unintended) are ever present throughout the album. Teaming up with long time collaborator and producer Chad Clark(Dismemberment Plan, Georgie James, Beauty Pill), Nest also finds Meredith extending his sonic palette from the self-restrained single guitar of his sophomore record Silver Sonya to a larger handful of musicians, instruments and digital experimentation. The result is his most engaging and expansive record to date.
