birdsongs | volume 3 | Taran Ortlieb
welcome to blackcrows music and conversation

The mountains give, and the mountains taketh away.

Taran Ortlieb knows this well. “Addicted to the drug of skiing”, we learn how this Canadian crow leaves the nest of a 100 meter ski hill under the wings of his mother in pursuit of bigger mountains and a career on skis.

The mountains always humble though, and Taran’s eclectic mix of meticulously chosen songs weave a tale of community, sorrow, and picking your head back up and remembering to just have fun. And he knows fun, he’ll tell you the secret to having the best time with your pants on.
