Birdtalker is an alt folk band compared to artists such as The Lone Bellow, and Shovels & Rope. Birdtalker is the creation of Zack and Dani Green, who decided to start their recently married life by writing songs. Dani & Zack's stunning harmonies bring a less melancholy ode to those of the The Civil Wars. Their 2016 single "Heavy" has over 22 million streams on Spotify. After the success of their Just This EP released last year, Birdtalker will be releasing a full length album titled One this June. Birdtalker's hope is simply that the more music they write and share, the more true and vulnerable interactions may be born from it.
MOST INFLUENTIAL ALBUM
Dani: 1,000 KISSES | PATTY GRIFFIN
It’s an album that my dad played a lot while I was growing up, and I latched onto her songwriting and her voice instantly. She’s a constant source of songwriting inspiration.
Zack: UP FROM BELOW | EDWARD SHARPE & THE MAGNETIC ZEROS
I grew up not listening to a lot of albums, mostly mixes my dad would make from ripped library CD’s. Really though, I had a beautiful moment that felt like my own, with Up From Below by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. The playfulness, sincerity, and profundity of the lyrics struck me. Sounded like people who care about what it means to be a good human playing music together. Alexander Ebert’s creativity and openness continues to inspire me.
