Railbird is an all-original indie folk rock group with eclectic, lyrically driven songs from Saratoga Springs, New York. The band is fronted by singer/songwriter Sarah Pedinotti who is described by Billboard Magazine as, "a talented young singer/songwriter on the rise." In a recent Railbird review, Pedinotti's songs are compared to those of Dylan, the Band, and Patti Smith.

Pedinotti is a storyteller who finds inspiration in the fiction and poetry of writers such as George Orwell, Philip K. Dick, Walt Whitman, Allen Ginsberg, and W.B. Yeats. Railbird's debut disc was listed as No. 8 in the Billboard editors' picks for 2008, hailed as "a great indie band set to break out." Also performing, Dave Smallen and Sydney Wayser.
