Check out the exclusive debut of “A  Day In The Life” by Aimee Bobruk at American Songwriter!

Austin-based singer-songwriter Aimee Bobruk has announced a month-long tour in support of her upcoming album /ba.’brook/ (a phonetic spelling of her Russian last name), scheduled for release on January 29th.  The string of dates throughout the South, Midwest and Northeast includes an official showcase appearance at the Folk Alliance International festival in Toronto, as well as a series of shows with fellow Austin musicians Suzanna Choffel (a recent contestant on “The Voice”) and Hilary York. See below for complete tour dates.

To celebrate the news, Bobruk has offered up a download of “A Day In The Life,” the latest single and lead track from /ba.’brook/, premiered exclusively by American Songwriter. Although it shares its name with the final track on Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the song actually takes its inspiration from a different source: Kimya Dawson’s quirky, acoustic contributions to the “Juno” soundtrack.  “It’s intended to be a simple love song about two teenagers eloping — a teenage boy and his projections of how his girlfriend’s family will take the news of their departure,” explains Bobruk,

Bobruk collaborates with producer/bassist Brian Beattie and drummer Dony Wynn on /ba.’brook/. Beattie hails from Austin’s avant-garde punk rock band Glass Eye and has produced albums for Daniel Johnston, Okkervil River, Bill Callahan and Shearwater.  Wynn has worked with such artists as Robert Plant and Robert Palmer and is known for building his drum kits out of everything from banana peels to filing cabinets.  Bobruk recently discussed the album with Austin’s NPR affiliate KUT on the “Texas Music Matters” program.  Listen to the interview here.
