It Must Be Christmas Again

by Ken Bierschbach

Released 2010
Bish Music
Released 2010
Bish Music
Christmas present meets Christmas past. A simple and uplifting tune about the season and all the fond memories that come with it.
NOTES
This song was written for a holiday show I was part of in Grand Rapids, MI. I've written several holiday themed songs, but this one has always been a favorite of mine. It has many of my own Christmas memories in it; Memories I think a lot of people also have. In early summer I decided to make a proper recording of it and asked friend and record producer Michael Crittenden to give me a …

Ten tracks of infectious pop folk fare served with a side of country...sure to satisfy your inner hippie.

This record takes Ken's songs and transforms them into individual gems that you'll swear could have been played on the radio in the sixties or seventies. The album was recorded from September through December of of 2009, and was produced by one of the best in the midwest...Michael Crittenden. The record opens with "Bonnie," a pop homage to Ken's childhood. "Hey Brother" comes next, starting with some rhythmic chording on an octave mandolin and finishing …

Winter in West Michigan

    What Christmas Means To Me

    Outside the snow is fallin' and it's gettin' bitter cold
    I'm thinkin' 'bout the season and how I'm growin' old
    Then I watch the final leaf, fallin' from the final tree
    And I find myself thinkin' what does Christmas mean to me

    Well it means a lot of shoppin', it means a lot of noise
    It means a lot of eatin', and way too many toys
    And it means a lot of searchin' for souls hard to find
    And as I stare out my window, I can't get Christmas off my mind

          Christmas comes but once a year on that we all agree
          But shouldn't Christmas spirit be a life's philosophy
          So as you place your angel high atop your Christmas tree
          Have some fun enjoy the family
          Give someone a smile it's always free
          Make yourself another memory
          That's what Christmas means to me

    It means a lot of hustle and way too little time
    It means a lot of pressure and for some an uphill climb
    But it also means reflection on lives hard to live
    Let's make everyday Christmas, the season to give

                Chorus

                No matter when no matter where
                We can always take some time to care

    If Christ were here he'd tell us just what we ought to do
    Treat your neighbor as yourself the whole year through
    And make the world a better place, with everything you do
    Say a little prayer tonight, wishes can come true

                Chorus

    The Christmas Song

Somewhere Out There

by Ken Bierschbach

Released 2001
Released 2001
From intimate ballads to guitar driving Rock & Roll to jazzy introspection, Ken takes you "Somewhere Out There" and back again - A songwriter's journey not to be missed.
NOTES
Ken began his musical journey in 1969- coincidentally or not - the same year Woodstock rocked the nation. He is chronologically older now, but the passion he has for his music has never been greater. Centered in his belief that all of us share a common thread, his songs spring from his life experience sometimes like gentle whispers and sometimes like plaintive cries. The biting honesty of his lyrics reflects the optimism, cynicism, and random …

The Bold Type

by Ken Bierschbach

Released 1998
Bish Music
Released 1998
Bish Music
A new country folk-pop feel with rich harmonies and strong rhythms.
NOTES
The debut CD from singer / songwriter Ken Bierschbach blends vivid lyrics with memorable melodies and strong rhythms.

A lifetime in the making, Ken brings a decidedly pop feel to songs that could just as easily be called new country, folk, or acoustic.

Lyrically, Ken gives us his take on the headlines of the day (The Bold Type), the perils of being different (Felony Eyes), and the struggles of people living on the edges (Borderline)
