hi there, we're «Silver Birch», a new songwriter-folk-wave band based in Berne Switzerland. 



After a short phase of spreading our wings and playing concerts under the name Silver Birch, the pandemic made us draw back to the shelter of our one-room studio, where we recorded 19 songs. Now we're superHappy to get those songs out there! Our debut album «Oblivion» is out October 29th 2021, containing the first 10 songs. The rest of the songs will follow on our 2nd album in 2022.

Oblivion - Silver Birch

Oblivion is the debut album by Silver Birch and i'm very happy it's finally out there. Over the course of maybe five years i dreamed about this project and worked on lots of song sketches. In 2019 i finally felt ready to go out there and ask fellow musicians to tag along, and we started playing local concerts till the pandemic made us pause.
During the first lockdown in may and June 2020 we recorded nineteen songs in my one room studio at Kulturzentrum Progr in the city of Berne Switzerland. The first ten songs you'll find here on this album, the rest should follow soon on a second one.

I've been lucky to receive support from many dear people: superThanks to my dear family and friends, to Helena Danis, Tobi Diggelmann, Thomas Blanchat, Pascal Lüthi, Christoph Utzinger, Andreas Ryser, Nadine Schärer, Jahn Antener, Shirley Grimes, Aline Janack, Katharina Reidy, Oli Kuster, Sabo Sabahet Meta, Anne Sauvageot, the Progr Team and Nicolas Dähler.
Thanks also to KulturStadtBern, Kulturprozent Migros Aare, Kanton Bern and Burgergemeinde Bern for their financial contributions.

It's good to know these songs are being listend to. So in that sense, thanks to YOU, dear listener for being open and curious. Patrick
