New York singer-songwriter Aisha Badru uses airy vocals and vivid lyrics to draw listeners into her soulfully emotive world. Until somewhat recently, Aisha preferred the confines of her own bedroom for writing and recording music, but her deep desire to connect with people through her music eventually pushed her to share songs online. A few fans turned into a few thousand fans and blogs started to take notice. She self-released her debut EPVacancy in 2015, and soon caught attention of the ad world when her beautifully moving song “Waiting Around” was selected for a Volkswagen viral campaign. Aisha is currently working on her full-length debut album, which will be released later this year on her new label home, Nettwerk Records.
Aisha Badru’s latest offering “Mind On Fire” is set to further the success of her previous release “Waiting Around” which warmed the hearts of Australian listeners after being added to Spotify’s ‘Gentle Acoustic’ playlist. “Mind On Fire” is another stripped back affair and offers a surprising mixture of alternative pop and soulful R&B. The track also has a strong lyrical message as Aisha explains – “The song is about the revolutionary spirit that dwells inside all of us that often gets smothered underneath the mundane obligations and limitations imposed by society that keep our heads down and our attention focused on the small details of our lives which in turn prevents us from correcting the flaws that exist in the current state of the world. My goal as an artist is to re-light that flame. I hope to encourage people to have the confidence to lift their heads up, live from the heart, and create a reality we all feel proud to live in.”
