Hailing from Independence, Kentucky, Seabird formed when Aaron Morgan, Micah Landers, and Aaron Hunt began playing songs with each other in 2004. The band soon added accordion player David Smith. After playing together for a little under a year both Landers and Smith left to pursue other interests. Soon after Chris Kubik joined the band to take the place of Landers on bass and Morgan began playing two keyboards to make up for the loss of the accordion. After adding Morgan's brother (Ryan) to play guitar, the band recorded their debut EP, Spread Your Broken Wings And Try, in one of the band members' rooms.
Their EP was passed to EMI and, after a personal showcase, the band was signed in 2005. However, a year later, the band switched from EMI to Credential Records. They continued to record material for a possible studio album from 2006 through most of 2007 and released a second EP, Let Me Go On, in mid-December 2007. This time, their second EP was used as a teaser for their debut studio album, 'Til We See The Shore, which was released in 2008, followed by their second studio album, Rocks Into Rivers, in 2009. In 2012, they completed a Kickstarter project which raised funds for a self-produced third full-length album, Troubled Days, which was released in 2013.
Seabird's songs have been heard on several TV shows, including Pushing Daisies, Numb3rs, Grey's Anatomy, and Ghost Whisperer.
