Desert Sea

by Aura Bakker

Songs you might have found on scraps of paper, hidden in the pocket of a thrift shop coat, forgotten by an unknown genius. They are full of layered vocals, quirky drums, secret stories and an electric aesthetic.

Album Notes
"Music is important to me. It teaches me things about myself, other people, and the nature of life and the divine. I often times discover the meaning in the songs after I write them -- they take on a life of their own. The songs on this album have taught me a lot, and so has everyone on the album, whose ideas helped bring the songs to life."
- Aura Bakker

Co-produced by Jonathan Greene (Arthur Channel)
Engineered and mixed by Thomas Queyja at Lip Studio
Mastered by Hans DeKline

Raised in both California and Holland, Aura grew up playing piano and studying Indian Classical Music and Jazz. After completing a BA in music at the Maastricht Conservatory in Holland, she moved to London for two years where she began performing regularly and found her voice in songwriting.

From 2005-2009 Aura toured around the world where she sang at the renowned Teatru festival in Malta, Fiji, Hawaii, San Francisco and Seattle. In 2010 Aura recorded and produced her first EP 'Glow After Illumination' in Amsterdam. This led to a show at the well-known venue Paradiso. Aura soon moved to Los Angeles and began playing music around the city including The Viper Room, The Satellite and Hotel Cafe. Aura teaches music to Hollywood's elite and collaborates with musicians Lili Hayden, Jonathan Greene (Arthur Channel), and Burgundy Fats.

In the fall of 2013, Aura successfully launched her first Kickstarter campaign, raising close to $10,000 to record her debut full-length album. 'Desert Sea' was released in February of 2014.

The purity in Aura's voice is striking and uncommon. She has been compared to Feist, Norah Jones and Joni Mitchell.
