One of our favorite local singer-songwriters Birdie Busch is featured this week as part of World Cafe host David Dye’s World Cafe: Next series on the Cafe and NPR Music. Here’s what Kate Bracaglia, contributor to The Key and Underwater Explosions blogger writes:
Philadelphia’s whimsical, verse-weaving siren, has always had a way with storytelling. Her lyrics are quirky, candid and infused with a sense of sentimentality. Busch’s latest release, Birdie Busch and the Greatest Night, is her fourth album showcasing her folk-pop fusion. She recorded it live alongside bandmates Ross Bellenoit, Thomas Bendel, Carl Cheeseman, Todd Erk and W. Craig Hendrix. The record is a tale of celebration and struggle — delving into issues like finding time for your passions, staying focused and true to yourself.
