From The Birdsongs
The Birdsongs are a Christian Alternative Rock/Power Pop band originally from Seattle, WA, now living near Knoxville, TN, composed of four brothers, their sister, and their father. As a band, they have maintained a constant touring presence and have become increasingly popular at festivals, events, and churches. In recent years, they have shared the stage with artists such as The Newsboys, Sanctus Real, RED, Rush of Fools, Everyday Sunday, and Fireflight. At their live shows, whether rocking out in front of thousands or leading worship at a small church, the band always displays their passion for spreading the gospel and making Jesus famous. Lead singer, Benjamin Birdsong, shares his insight into the band's heart, "What we do around the country and onstage is just an extension of who we are in Jesus Christ. We want to be totally honest and real about who we are and who God is. We're not seeking fame or fortune. On the contrary, we're passionate about spreading the gospel and pointing people to Christ. We want to serve Him with our lives and this is the ministry God's equipped us for!"
The Birdsongs released their first two radio singles in 2009 and 2010 and have since gained tremendous radio success with both singles ("Pieces (Hold On)" and "So Much More"). The two singles shot up many national and regional charts, with the former having made it all the way to #24 on Billboard's BDS National Christian Rock Airplay Chart. Both singles have enjoyed steady airplay ever since. The band's newest single entitled "Will You Save Me?" is a heart-wrenching first-hand account of repentance and God's amazing grace in breaking the chains of habitual sin and bondage of the past. The song will be released July 23th, 2012 and is one of the singles off of the band's forthcoming EP. This EP will be entitled "The Journey: Act I; The Beginning" and will also include their first radio single "Pieces (Hold On)". The Birdsongs are stretching the boundaries of the art of crafting an album, with the songs telling an incredible story of love, pain, loss, family, and hope in Jesus Christ through the winding path of life. On this ground-breaking project, the band has worked with Grammy-nominated, Dove Award winning producer Travis Wyrick (Pillar, Disciple, TobyMac, P.O.D.), who produced both "Pieces (Hold On)" and "So Much More", producer Geoff Hunker (Satellites and Sirens), and producer/mixer Grant Craig (12 Stones, Cloverton, Silverline, Satellites and Sirens). "The Journey: Act I; The Beginning" is expected to be released in November 2012 with the story culminating with a second EP "The Journey: Act II; The End" being released at a later date
