Alternative folk group Birdtalker started in 2012, when newlywed couple Dani and Zack Green began writing songs together in their spare time. Friends in Nashville heard the music, and as more artists decided to support the couple’s musical vision, the duo evolved into a five-piece with the addition of Andy Hubright on drums, Brian Seligman on mandolin, and Jesse Baker on bass.

The band released their debut single “Heavy” this summer, and the track has already amassed close to 800,000 listens on Spotify.

The song is about “...embracing vulnerability and choosing to act from a place no longer tethered to resentment, doubt, or insecurity. It’s about choosing to live from a place of acceptance and peace over fear,” says Zack Green.

Adding a special layer of intimacy to the song, Birdtalker releases an acoustic video version with videographer Gavin Nutt premiering here on NashvilleLifestyles.com.

Of the recording, Zack Green says they “wanted to shoot in a natural, outdoor, setting as we thought that would complement a stripped-down acoustic take of the song. We recorded it in a backyard off Granny White Pike, the house where Andy, our drummer, lives. We have played there during rehearsals several times and it has always felt very charming and honest."

This single, and its follow-up “Graveclothes,” will lead up to the release of Birdtalker’s debut EP, “Just This,” out on August 19 with a special show at The High Watt on September 1.
