Aurora Barnes

New York City-based artist, Aurora Barnes, creates fiery music that tells vivid stories of love, heartbreak, joy, struggle and human resiliency.  Aurora uses intricate melodies and harmonies as a vehicle for her lyrics, painting abstract pictures with purpose.  Her vocal performances demonstrate her total connection to the material – unique for a singer nowadays.

Aurora has always been fascinated by the ability of musicians to capture complex emotions and the spirit of a particular moment in history. She was raised in uptown Manhattan surrounded by passionate members of the civil rights, women’s rights, labor and anti-war movements, learning early on the importance of a lifelong commitment to political and social activism. Raised on everyone from Bob Dylan to Stephen Sondheim, Nina Simone to Bonnie Raitt, Aurora grew to understand that the words she spoke and the ones she wrote must be deliberate and meaningful.
