William H. Travis
William H. Travis has been writing songs since they tried to teach him proper grammar in grade school.
His songs are both buoyant and morose, melancholy fist pumps. They give off the vibe that “yes, we can kind of do it, maybe.” Think, The Big Lebowski soundtrack.
Unlike his past releases, where the music was spontaneous, unrehearsed, and recorded straight to tape with a live band, Aloha!, his forthcoming second full-release, is deliberately orchestrated by Travis and producer, DJ Brown. The songs are quirky, distinct, and the characters even more threads of the writer himself. Turn out the lights, as you would for a movie, close your eyes, and let your ears enter you into the world of William H. Travis. Is this hello or goodbye? No. It is aloha.
Birdie Busch has been making and recording independent music from her home base of Philadelphia for a solid decade. A combination of loyal radio support across the U.S with every recording, live touring, and solid albums put out both herself and on adventurous independents like Bar None Records has created a constellation of connect the dots that has created widespread devout fans.
Five full lengths and a Philadelphia themed EP has had her creating sonic song soundscapes with some of Philly’s finest musicians, producers, and engineers. Critics from American Songwriter to Village Voice have found her of kindred spirit from everyone from Syd Barrett to Eudora Welty, and seem to just keep referring to what she does as her own thing and appreciating that strange place where it resides. City Paper says, “She’s noisy when she might’ve hushed up, nervy when most are relaxed, funny when others stay forlorn and dressy when she could be buttoned-up.” It’s this comfort to contain multitudes that has had her and her band sharing stages with everyone from Richard Thompson and Richie Havens to Dr.Dog and Junip.
