New short film explores Brown Bird dilemma

Posted

David Lamb, half of Warren musical and life duo Brown Bird, has been fighting leukemia for much of 2013. Though he and fiance and bandmate MorganEve Swain have thousands of supporters across the globe, one of their greatest assets is health insurance. A short film produced by Warren's Leigh Medeiros examines Dave's illness, the vulnerability of those who are not insured, and talks of the couple's hope to get back to where they love — the stage, making beautiful music. See the documentary here. For more on Brown Bird, check out their website.
