Since becoming enamored with Matthew E. White’s music, I’ve learned to look to his label, Spacebomb Records, for quality music. Their newest addition is Bedouine, the moniker of Azniv Korkejian. Her first track is Dusty Eyes and it very descriptive of the track itself. It has a dusty folky feel to it and I’m digging it.
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.
