One evening last December, Dani and I sat down with a bottle of wine and started talking to each other. At that point in our relationship, about 3 years married, I had passively lost myself in cultivating our band and our videography business, something that continues to be an extremely difficult pattern for both of us, especially me. We pursued both of these ventures together and lived in a one-bedroom apartment, too. We were always around each other, but were rarely emotionally together. There was always a lot to talk about, but our words were usually concerned with circumstance. This conversation felt different.

We explored our emotions, meta-emotions, fears, anxieties, and each other’s patterns of thought and behavior; it was a very rich and life-giving conversation. We came to the conclusion that for a while, we had been unconsciously allowing circumstance to determine the dynamic of our relationship, instead of holding it sacred, cherishing it, cultivating it. It was a sad but important realization. At some point during the evening, I picked up my guitar and started playing a warm chord progression that I’d had for a while but had never actualized. In the next couple hours, we wrote the song “My Lover” in it’s entirety; a song that for us, speaks to the importance of taking a step back, widening the lens, and taking a moment to look each other in the eyes and remember that we’re all we’ve got.**

Birdtalker is Zack and Dani Green, Andy Hubright, Brian Seligman, and Jesse Baker.

 

Zack and Dani were married in 2012 and soon after their wedding tried writing a couple songs together. They liked it, so they wrote a couple more. Andy, a friend from college and very talented drummer, was into the songs and started beating on stuff while Zack and Dani played them. It sounded good. While these 3 were playing the songs at Shakespeare in the Park one August afternoon, Brian became interested in adding his immense talent to the mix as well and began playing along with mandolin and guitar. It sounded even better. Birdtalker as these 4 members wrote and practiced for about a year when yet another talented friend and Birdtalker's biggest fan, Jesse, expressed interest in lending his bass sounds to the band. It is the combination of each member's specific offerings that gives Birdtalker the life and sound that it now possesses. And it doesn't hurt that they all like each other a heck of a lot, too. 

Zack and Dani write songs as a way to share ideas they care about and sentiments they feel deeply. Playing music has proven to be a powerful avenue for connection and communion, within the band as well as with listeners. Birdtalker's hope is simply that the more music they write and share, the more true and vulnerable interactions may be born from it.
