Album Notes
Songwriter, vocalist and keyboardist Kenna Burima lives and breathes music. 

Her musical projects illustrate the diversity of her artistic process: the swooning orchestral-pop of Woodpigeon, the sweaty garage-rock of Beaver Squadron (formerly The Brenda Vaqueros), the garage pop power of The Pygmies, and classical avante-garde duo Foon Yap and Kenna Burima. 

Kenna became obsessed with playing the piano at an early age and her love of the music of dead, European men; Bach, Beethoven, Brahms and Chopin continues to the present. After high school, Kenna moved to Calgary to pursue an artist diploma in piano from the Mount Royal Conservatory and later a degree in music from the University of Calgary. Sequestering herself alone to a practice room for eight hours a day, it never dawned on her that there was anything else until she was asked to guest appear with garage rock band The Brenda Vaqueros for a 70’s rock tribute night. Years later, she continues to split her time between learning Beethoven sonatas and transcribing Black Sabbath for piano.

Her current solo project features an amalgamation of all that she does; classical, rock, cabaret, jazz, folk, garage, and metal. With the help of some of the best musicians in Calgary; jazz drummer Jon May (Black Coffee Cowboys, Scotty Hills, Jason Spooner, Sinistrio, Gerry Hebert Quartet, The Polyjesters), bassist Simon Fisk (Michael Kaeshammer, Jerry Granelli, Gordon Grdina, Chris Gestrin), guitarist Colin Mitchell (Günther, Thomp!, Faebles), bass clarinetist/saxophonist Mark DeJong, and Foon Yap (Foon Yap and the Roar, Woodpigeon) the band has been able to strike a balance between all the disparate elements, creating an engaging, surprising and somewhat unsettling show.
