Love Leads to 24 Million Spotify Streams

Zack and Dani Green were married before they ever played music together. It was 6 months in when, one afternoon, the guitarist and singer asked his spouse for input on a song he was writing. Within hours they realized that Dani's background as a student of literature and her talent as a harmonizer brought Zak's music to another level. After reaching out to a few friends they created the band Birdtalker, and before ever embarking on a national tour their song "Heavy" took off on Spotify – it now has over 24 million streams! The group recently released their debut album ONE. Birdtalker join the Cafe's Ann Powers for a conversation about faith, doubt, love and listening, at Sound Stage Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.
