Jenny Owen Youngs
Singer, songwriter, and natural history enthusiast Jenny Owen Youngs grew up in the forests of northern New Jersey and is now based in Los Angeles. She has released three albums and a handful of EPs, both independently and via Nettwerk Records, and her songs have been heard
on Bojack Horseman, Weeds, Grey's Anatomy, and Suburgatory. These days she spends much of her time writing with and for other artists including Ingrid Michaelson, Pitbull, and Brett Dennen. She recently co-wrote the latest Panic! at the Disco single “High Hopes,” and also
just completed recording a new EP, due out later this year.
Jenny is also the co-host of Buffering the Vampire Slayer, a Buffy rewatch podcast featuring an original recap song for every episode, alongside LGBT activist & author Kristin Russo. Buffering the Vampire Slayer was named one of Time's Top 50 Podcasts and selected as one of Esquire's Top 10 Podcasts of 2018.
Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, and currently residing near Boston, Massachusetts, violinist, vocalist and songwriter Aisha Burns began playing violin when she was 10 years old. Soon after moving to Austin in 2005, she gained her start with a Texas folk-rock band, began touring and recording, and later joined the instrumental ensemble Balmorhea on violin in 2007. After years of secret singing, she released her solo debut Life in the Midwater in 2013. Called "twisting, ethereal...arresting" by Dazed Magazine, and praised for its "delicate intimacy" by NPR, Life in the Midwater explored mortality and relationships with candor and wisdom.
After contributing her violin work to a range of remarkable artists, including Adam Torres and Thor & Friends, Aisha is back with another release of her own.
Her new album Argonauta, is a collection of songs about her struggle with the grief of losing her mother, while also navigating a new relationship, and ultimately trying to discern what the new normal is for her life. "Argonauta takes her vocal prowess to a new level—more confident and operatic,” Bandcamp wrote. “She evokes Thom Yorke’s plaintive cry...and occasionally, she delivers the album’s most poignant messages with an air of almost stately detachment, bringing to mind the German cult singer Nico, acting as a foil for the rich string arrangements, equally cinematic and mournful..." Called “A poignant album” by Pitchfork, Aisha wrote Argonauta to quiet a weary mind. Taking its name from a book by Anne Morrow Lindbergh called, Gift From the Sea, the record picks up where Life in the Midwater left us, this time with even more strength and light.
