The Birdsongs are an American Christian rock band originally from Seattle, WA, now living near Knoxville, Tennessee composed of three brothers and a sister, who began playing together as a family at a very young age. As a band, they have maintained a constant touring presence and have become increasingly popular at festivals, camps, youth events, and churches. In recent years, they have played shows with hit artists such as The Newsboys, Sanctus Real, RED, and Rush of Fools.[1][2] Their single “Will You Save Me?” debuted on radio on July 23, 2012 with the album “The Journey: Act I; The Beginning” releasing shortly after in November 2012. “Will You Save Me” has since gathered over 1.5 million streams on Spotify. Their single “This Isn’t Love” released on February 14, 2014 and peaked at #9 on Billboard’s National Christian Rock Airplay Chart. They released “The Journey: Act II; The War” on September 6th, 2019.[3]

The Birdsongs released the first EP in a two-part project entitled “The Journey: Act I; The Beginning” on November 20, 2012. They started work on the project with Grammy-nominated, Dove Award winning producer Travis Wyrick (Pillar, Disciple, TobyMac, P.O.D.) who also produced their radio singles. The band finished the EP in Nashville with producer Geoff Hunker of the band Satellites & Sirens and producer/mixer Grant Craig who has worked with bands such as 12 Stones and Egypt Central. “The Journey: Act I; The Beginning” includes the popular radio single “Pieces (Hold On)” in addition to their singles “Will You Save Me?” and “This Isn’t Love.” This first EP is the first part of a two-part storyline. The story will culminate with a full-length LP “The Journey: Act II; The War” being released September 6th, 2019.
