Introducing Bedouine – Debut album out June 23
We’re very happy to welcome Bedouine to the Spacebomb family and announce that her self-titled debut album is due out June 23rd. You can listen to the lead single “Dusty Eyes” now at FADER, who calls the forthcoming album “gorgeous, drifting folk music filled with sun.”
Bedouine, a gallicized riff on bedouin, the nomad, the wanderer. Anyone can assume such a name, but Azniv Korkejian has an experience of what it means, the type of ground it covers. Her development was shaped by political landscapes and family opportunities, her adult life patterned by paths of her own. Born in Aleppo, Syria to Armenian parents, Korkejian spent her childhood in Saudi Arabia, moving to America when her family won a Green Card lottery. They settled in Boston, then Houston, but she split for L.A. as soon as she could. A casual offer to stay on a horse farm took her to the rolling hills of Lexington, Kentucky, followed by a year in Austin, and a trip east to Savannah for a degree in sound design. Returning to L.A., she discovered a close-knit community of musicians in Echo Park that started to feel like home. Read more about Bedouine.
