Looking Back on 2017 and Forward to 2018 

We're finishing up a season of writing, resting, and recording - we have been busy preparing for 2018! 

2017 was a year of change, preparation, and much needed rest. We got to see so many of you at our shows and we were honored to see God at work in many lives...including ours. We were so blessed to play music around the country and even be invited to play at Creation Festival NorthEast this past Summer alongside some of our favorite artists. 

As many of you know, we've been playing music together as a family since 1995 - that's over 20 years! So, we took a large portion of last year to regroup, refocus, and rest. 

Our family and ministry has been through many changes over the years. Our latest change came last Spring when our oldest brother/bassist/banjo player, Matthew, after much prayer and consideration, decided it was time to come off the road in order to spend more time with his wife and home church. We miss him on the road but we understand and support his decision wholeheartedly.

We've spent the last year writing songs that we're extremely excited to record and make available! We believe that these are the most personal, honest songs we've ever written. This will also be the most "Birdsong" album to date. We're pouring so much of ourselves into this project and we're thankful to God for entrusting the messages of these songs to us! 

We have just finished pre-production for our new album The Journey: Act II; The War. We have been working in our home studio since September and TODAY we started recording at Lakeside Studios with Travis Wyrick! Be looking for a release date in the next few weeks!

New Hymns Project 

posted by The Birdsongs on June 24, 2014

In 2011, we released our first Hymns project entitled “He Leadeth Me: Hymns.” We recorded it in our own home studio, got our family and friends involved, and produced a more laid-back acoustic album filled with some of our favorite old hymns. We've received so much positive feedback from you all that we wanted to do it again! 

There are a lot of hymns, both old and new, infused with huge spiritual truths that we have been singing lately when we lead worship. Recently, we've compiled a list of our current favorites and we've headed back into our home studio to work on them! This time around, we’re recording it with the whole band so there will be drums, electric guitar, and every other instrument you can think of - even pennywhistle! It will be entitled “How Great Thou Art: Hymns II” and, along with the title track, will feature songs like “It is Well,” “In Christ Alone,” “All I Have is Christ,” and our “Victory in Jesus” Medley. 

We're so excited about this project and we can't wait to share it with you! We're estimating that it will be completed by the end of July/beginning of August. We will continue to keep you updated throughout the whole process. So, keep an eye out on our Facebook, Twitter, newsletter, and here on the blog - we will let you know when pre-orders will be available!! Thank you all so much for your support!

God Bless!!




Update November 27, 2014
*"How Great Thou Art: Hymns II" is at the end of the recording process and should be completed soon!
