The Lizard Lounge is SO PSYCHED to have this amazing artist back! It's no surprise to us that she's nominated for 3 Boston Music Awards this time around. She's up for vocalist, singer/songwriter and unsigned artist of the year. We think all three are well deserved! The Boston psych-pop band June Bloom opens the show with a sound that is reminiscent of early Pink Floyd and The Zombies yet calls upon neo-psychedelia in the vein of Animal Collective and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.
Aubrey Haddards world was rocked when she saw Susan Tedeschi for the first time. Haddard was just fifteen and starry-eyed at the sight of such a powerful frontwoman. I remember being in total awe of her, she recalls. Thats when I knew I didnt have to be in high school choir to be a singeractually, I quit the next day.
From that point forward, the Hudson Valley native continually forged her own path in music, defining her own set of boundaries just to boldly knock them back down. Haddards voice, a powerful, gutsy roar, took home top prizes in local singing competitions and could be heard in the local clubs blazing until after-hours. She created a following of fans that took great joy in her ability to bare her soul with such audacity.
A slew of bands and side projects in New York and Boston lead Haddard down the path of a solo career, and after culminating new music for the better part of a year, Haddard recorded and released her debut album Blue Part in July of 2018. Steeped in stories of love and passion, the intimate, yet brash concept album displayed a fearlessness that captured the attention of notable publications including NPR, The Boston Herald, Vanyaland, and Atwood Magazine. She was praised by NPR as having a nascent star power; DigBoston described her songs as bursting with life.
The success of Blue Part lead Haddard to seven nominations and a few big wins at the 2018 Boston Music Awards, including Vocalist of the Year and Singer/Songwriter of the Year. Now in 2019, she resides in Brooklyn, NY while finishing production on her sophomore release.
