Boy Without God is the songwriting project of Boston native Gabriel Birnbaum. His songs have been described as “moody and richly literate” by the Boston Globe, and his “deep, commanding vocals” will“more than hold your attention,” (L Magazine). John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats has praised his recorded work as “a lovely, lovely thing.” Birnbaum has recently expanded the BWG act into a full, electric band, combining his dynamic and vivid pop songs with the tight vocal harmonies of The Band, the inventive, intricate arrangements of pop-savvy composers like Nico Muhly and and the ecstatic improvisation of people like Albert Ayler & Charles Mingus. BWG has shared stages with the likes of Titus Andronicus, Phosphorescent,J. Tillman, & White Hinterland.
Birnbaum is joined live and on record by Will Graefe, Elio DeLuca, Peter Moffett, Siv Lie, Dave Harris, Aaron Kruziki, Mallory Moye, Andrew McGovern, David Bentley, Danny Mekonnen, Katie Von Schleicher, Brittany Asch, Harrison Seiler and many more.
