“extraordinary” – NPR
“Aisha Badru’s vocals are slight but soulful, airy but powerful… she uses this distinctive alternative/indie sound to soul-stirring effect that is difficult to describe but impossible not to feel.” – Afropunk
“a voice that could seemingly move mountains if she whispered at them.” – Ones To Watch
“Deeply atmospheric, the lyrics are drawn from her own life, picking apart the intricate power balance in a relationship.”- Clash
Indie-folk artist Aisha Badru will share her dynamic new The Way Back Home EP with the world this Friday, December 3 via Nettwerk Records. Earning accolades spanning NPR, The Wild Honey Pie, Apple Music Country, The Bluegrass Situation, Orlando Weekly, American Songwriter + more, it is a collection of atmospheric soundscapes deeply rooted in nature, spirituality, family and homecoming.
Aisha once found herself to be a restless world-traveller, always looking for the next place to be. These days she lives contentedly in her house outside of Orlando, Florida, with her partner and twin toddlers. Through the experience of planting her own roots, The Way Back Home EP was born. “When I was younger, I really needed to leave home. I moved away. I was always trying to find something better. All the things I needed to learn, I ran away from,” she says. This narrative continues through new single “Home,” out today, a remembrance that’s as melancholic as you’d expect, written from the perspective of the person who once ran away, returning home.
Aisha’s humanistic confessionals have won more than 100M+ streams, a fanbase in Europe, and the praise of publications such as NPR, who celebrated her “warm and inviting” approach. Since releasing her debut album Pendulum, Aisha relocated from Yonkers, NY to Orlando, where she lives sustainably and practices permaculture. She is also using her platform to amplify this passion for environmentalism, teaming up with Nettwerk Records to plant trees with pre-saves of the albums & singles via a donation to the non-profit, One Tree Planted.
