A noted violinist, Bird decided to part with the popular indie label, RYKO, in an attempt to explore his musical landscape.

Weather Systems couples Bird's melodic violin compositions with insightfull lyricism.

Throw in the voice of Nora' O' Conner, a long time friend and musical partner, and the album takes flight.

Free Lunch for Tuesday, Feb. 18 2003

Chattanooga, TN – John Hammond's new album, Ready for Love, is the featured album for Tuesday's Free Lunch on WUTC radio.

Ready for Love is a difficult album to describe. Its random assortment of songs makes it extremely difficult to pinpoint a theme. And I'm a bit perplexed as to the motivation behind covering such songs as Spider And The Fly, by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and the George Jones hit, Just One More. Nevertheless, Hammond manages to carry the different song styles in his own and very unique way.
