Kathleen "Bird" York is an actress, screenwriter and Oscar nominated songwriter-recording artist who achieved global recognition with her song In the Deep, which appears on her album Wicked Little High and was written for the 2005 film Crash.

In the Deep was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song with York performing the song live at the 78th Academy Awards in 2006.

York's acting highlights include her role as Andy Wyatt on the The West Wing, her critically acclaimed portrayal of Naomi Judd in the NBC biopic Love Can Build A Bridge, and roles in Diane Keaton's Northern Lights, Front of the Class, the Lifetime Original Movie Fatal Desire, A Season in Purgatory and Charles Burnett's Nightjohn.

Her film credits include the Academy Award-winning film Crash and independent films The Big Day, Ball Don't Lie, Checking Out, Sister Island and Cold Feet.

York was a series regular on ABC's Vengeance Unlimited, Aaron's Way for NBC and The Client List for Lifetime, and has recurred on Murder One, The O.C. and Desperate Housewives.

A musician since 15 years of age, Bird York composes and sings, as well as produces music. She achieved global recognition with her Academy Award-nominated song In the Deep, (co-written with Michael Becker) from the 2005 Oscar-winning film Crash, and performed the song on the 78th Annual Oscar Awards.
