The Ways We Try
Beneath her unassuming and gentle demeanor lies a free spirit, an open heart, and an uncompromising integrity that lives to, in the words of Townes Van Zandt, "sing for the sake of the song.” Inspired by writers like Paul Simon, Gillian Welch and Neil Young, there is a distinct jubilance to her writing that is informed with a sweet sorrow – creating a musical balance that is at once comfortable, familiar and still unique. Born in Philadelphia amidst a great wealth of talent, The Ways We Try
has captured the essence of Birdie Busch and the players who so generously gave of their time and skills to bring these joyous songs to life. Produced by Devin Greenwood (Amos Lee, the Weeds, JF Maher) and recorded at Scullville Studios (Dixie Hummingbirds, Larry Campbell, Soozie Tyrell), the album represents Birdie's first full-length release.
