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 guitars, ukelele, and vihuela, there’s no denying her travels have informed the breadth of her songwriting, noted best for its intimacy, honesty and lyricism.
Tadros has played over 600 stages across North America and Europe in her four years as a touring artist. She also helped to form The Sweetness, a Toronto/Austin based collective of singer/songwriters. The Sweetness raised over $6,000 in the two weeks after forming as a band, toured Europe, and traveled across North America with a German documentary film crew commissioned by the Stuttgart FilmAkademie. The film is set for release in 2013.
This year has been her most exciting yet – with invitations to showcase at The Folk Alliance International Conference (The Sweetness), CMJ, and endorsements from both Guild Guitars and Fender (ukulele).
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.
