When Aly Tadros was offered her first paid gig, she had three original songs under her belt. The set time called for two hours.
She took it anyway.
With a voice as angelic as it is weather beaten, and music NPR Austin calls “delightfully wistful indie folk with tender and earnest roots,” Aly Tadros has spent the last decade traveling across Egypt, Turkey, Mexico, and Europe. Banned with her classical and acoustic guitar, ukulele, and vihuela, her travels have informed the breadth of her songwriting, noted best for its intimacy, honesty and lyricism.
Since starting music at the ripe old age of 20, Tadros has played over 600 stages across North America and Europe. This year has been her most exciting yet – with invitations to showcase with The Sweetness at The Folk Alliance International Conference, CMJ, and endorsements from Guild and Fender Guitars. Her sophomore album, The Fits, was produced by Duane Lundy (Jim James, Ben Sollee, These United States), and is set for release January 15, 2013.
