After getting her start with folk-rockers Alex Dupree and the Trapdoor Band (IDYL), songwriter and musician Aisha Burns joined instrumental sextet Balmorhea in 2007, and performs with them to this day. But along her musical journey, she dedicated time to work on her own songs, which eventually led to the release of her breathtaking 2013 solo debut, Life In the Midwater. Each track is an exquisite portrait of intimate detail, revealing the vulnerability one feels during the darkest hours of life, and the strength and wisdom that come with survival.
It’s another Austin Music Minute favorite. You can see Aisha Burns perform tonight at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, on the inside stage, with Jordan Moser and Marijuana Sweet Tooth on the bill. Doors open at 8 p.m. Recommended.
