Hailing from central Texas, though currently based in Massachusetts, violinist, vocalist and songwriter Aisha Burns has been touring and recording since 2006.
Gaining her start with folk-rock outfit Alex Dupree and the Trapdoor Band (now IDYL), Aisha joined Balmorhea on violin in 2007. After years of secret singing, she began tracking a project of her own. Inspired by Gillian Welch, Nina Simone, the warmth of a string quartet, the quiet of night, loss, and simplicity, in 2013 her debut record was born.
Called "one of the most arresting recent releases," by Dazed Magazine and praised for its "delicate intimacy," by NPR, "Life in the Midwater" explores mortality and relationships with candor and wisdom. Oscillating between tense and soothing sentiment, it moves from minimal to sweeping arrangements as remarkable for their diversity as their cohesion.
Burns' contributions as the violinist and occasional vocalist for the Austin band Balmorhea belie a nuanced songwriting prowess, and a dynamic and powerful voice.
Her sophomore LP, "Argonauta" is out May 25 on Western Vinyl.
