The indie-folk powerhouse Birdtalker is back with a defiant song about breaking away from the stories you've been told and learning to trust your own instincts. Building on the success of their 2018 breakout album "One" this Nashville-based quintet has found the time in a packed schedule of nonstop touring and festival appearances to write and record their much-anticipated follow up. This time around—given the luxury of no deadlines, no restrictions, and a clear vision of where they wanted to go—Birdtalker has expanded their sonic palette, showcasing a confident and creative songcraft that has flourished organically from a place of freedom and personal exploration.
With support from Rolling Stone, NPR Music, Billboard, World Cafe, American Songwriter, and Relix, Birdtalker has touched a nerve in the folk-inspired pop space that stretches from The Lumineers to The Head and the Heart, blending a live-band feeling with prominent acoustic guitar and an effervescent sense of melody. Their self-titled sophomore album promises to be more of a great thing as Birdtalker fuses a rediscovered sense of purpose with thoughtful lyrics and the kind of life experience that can only come from spending years on tour. "I Know" features an enlightened, road-savvy grace as we learn the important lesson of following our heart wherever it leads us.
