The latest episode of The Listening Podcast features multi-hyphenate and Oscar-nominated songwriter, recording artist, screenwriter and actor Bird York. She talks about her varied career, the surprising opportunities that have crossed her path, and the differences and similarities between writing lyrics, writing songs, and writing scripts.
A musician since fifteen, Bird’s songwriting ability got the attention of Warner Chappell which then lead to her critically acclaimed record with EMI. Her love for writing to picture found her composing and producing songs for several projects including IN THE DEEP from Oscar winning film CRASH, Sony’s SEVEN POUNDS, Magnolia Pictures DUMBSTRUCK, and Warner Bros’ SUBLIME, as well as for television series CSI:NY, HOUSE, AMERICAN IDOL, ARMY WIVES, and NIP TUCK.
In addition to writing music, she's a screenwriter who has developed pilots for Warner Bros, Sony, Paramount and Fox, and an accomplished actor best known for her work as Congresswoman Andie Wyatt on the West Wing, and can currently be seen as a series regular on the CBS/CW series IN THE DARK.
