Meet Our Baristas

Erin Westgate Carroll

:: Co-owner/founder, operator, head barista + baker :: Erin was born and raised in northern California and since her college days at Point Loma Nazarene Univeristy in San Diego, she always had a dream of opening her own coffee + tea house -- that dream became a reality when Songbird officially opened on Monday, July 23rd, 2012.

Michelle Behmetuik

Michelle hails from the wonderful city of Seattle, Washington -- home of coffee + fantastic music. Essentially, she was born to have passion for coffee + good music...and naturally, she does. She's a fantastic barista, gaining experience over the last few years at other shops, but now she's truly where she belongs...here at Songbird, full-time.

Hannah Bachinski

Hannah is a local Phoenician, has over ten years of barista experience + customer service. She is pitbull enthusiast (no, not that Pitbull) and has three rescued pitbulls with her wonderful husband. Hannah is also a local artist and has worked at two of our favorite Arizona coffeehouses: Press Coffee Roasters + Echo Coffee. Yeah, she's legit alright. We're lucky to have her.

Jonathan Carroll

:: Co-owner & founder :: Jonathan was born right here in the heart of Phoenix at Good Sam (in a wing of the hospital that is no longer standing -- he's old). He's always had a keen interest and passion in small business, social media and marketing, using his own creative ideas to engage with current and potential clientele here at Songbird. Being unique and different is only half of what makes Songbird sing a fine tune. He never had any intention of opening a small coffee & tea house, but his wife, Erin did. It was her dream and he made it come true. Having ZERO knowledge of coffee or tea, he grasped and learned the ropes over four years ago and now has the passion and drive to keep growing Songbird one cup of fresh pourover coffee or loose leaf tea at a time.

Phoenix With Diamond Troutman

The Style Line  · Rachel Schwartzmann · Oct. 6, 2014

“Songbird is a charming host to a vibrant quarter. Located in the Roosevelt Row (RoRo) Arts District, the coffee and tea house playfully reflects accents of its creative community in its earthy and urban décor. A scrabble-worded menu boasts roasts from Brazil, Costa Rica, and India and loose-leaf tea varieties. Vintage treasures in the lounge hint at recurrent themes of the songbird and all together compose a sort of time capsule of downtown Phoenix and the different cultures present within the city.”

Music We Play

Led Zeppelin

Pure rock + roll. The purist of rock. The one and only Led Zeppelin. Break out the Led. One of the greatest bands of all time -- perhaps the greatest of all time.

Pink Floyd

What can we say? Amazing musicians, amazing lyricists, fantastic guitarist. Gilmour + Waters -- what's not to love? One of the greatest bands ever. Great rock. Great imagery to take your imagination to the next level with their songs. Vivid + psychadelic at times.

Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire hails from Montreal and includes quite a few instrumentalists that often switch off during live permormances. Won grammy's for 2011's "Funeral," and have two other grammy's for "Neon Bible" + "The Suburbs."

Dire Straits

Solid British rock band formed in the late 70s by Mark Knopfler (lead vocals, lead guitar) and brother, David. Solid musicians, solid guitarist.

Frank Sinatra

Sinatra was as classy as they come, a bit of a temper, great with the ladies and had a voice like any other -- you can recognize his voice from any song, no matter if you're not a fan. Unique? To say the least. Well known for swing, jazz, big band music.

Jeff Buckley

Buckley died way too young, drowning in the Wolf River Harbor in Memphis, Tennessee. There was no evidence of foul play or drug-related issues that caused his death -- simply put, an accidental drowning. A truly sad tale for an amazing talent. He made one studio album, but it's one of the greatest "unknown" albums you'll ever listen to + you'll listen to it over and over again as it's that good. What's more, after his death, "Sketches for my Sweetheart The Drunk" was released with full-length songs he had been working on for a second album.

The American Analog Set

Check out "Gone To Earth" via the YouTube link

Lindi Ortega

Check out Lindi Ortega's "The Day You Die" via the YouTube link

Camera Obscura

Check out CO's "Eighties Fan" via the YouTube link

The Mountain Goats

Check out "Tallahassee" via YouTube link

Built to Spill

Check out "Carry the Zero" via YouTube link

Joe Esposito

Joe Esposito has actually won grammys -- no joke, but he's truly known for one song, a powerful, epic, blow your face off kind of song. Okay, not really, but everytime you hear "You're The Best," you can't help but to think of Daniel-SAN in the title karate match, right? Check out "You're The Best (Around)" via the YouTube link -- it's a great song to pump yourself up too!

Joe Satriani

An amazing self-taught guitarist, percussionist, keyboardist, etc. The guy is uber-talented and one of our faves.

Sketching In Stereo

Originally out of Tucson, now reside here in Phoenix. One of the best bands to EVER come out of the Phoenix Metro Area. Extremely gifted musicians that create crafted melodies with a blend of progressive + alternative rock. They're just as good live as they are on their albums. When people say the word "musician," think Sketching In Stereo. These guys were born to create music.

Cortez Coffee Company

Maya Tea Company

As Songbird stays local, we knew from the beginning we wanted Maya Tea Company to be part of our journey when we first opened our doors back in 2012. To us, quality meant a smile from each and every customer that ordered and tried a loose leaf tea from Songbird. Furthermore, our customers keep coming back for more and Maya Tea is part of the reason why.

Treehouse Bakery

The New Space

Nov. 28, 2014

The Relocation of Songbird Coffee & Tea House Before further speculation + rumors fly off our walls, allow us to unveil the truth: We are relocating. Where exactly?  We're not telling.  We can say that we're currently in strong negotiations with a couple of locations not far from our current space.   Our lease ends March of 2015 and we will keep you informed so that you can help us "spread the bird.
