Bedouine is a fitting name for singer-songwriter Azniv Korkejian, who has wandered the world since she was born in Aleppo, Syria before moving to America with her family and spending time in Boston, Texas, Kentucky and Los Angeles. The subdued folk ballads that populate her self-titled debut were fleshed out at Spacebomb (the Virginia studio used by Matthew E. White and Natalie Prass), where a string and horn section added lush melodies to Korkejian's sparse but stirring arrangements. Hushed songwriter Angelo de Augustine Montreal pop balladeer Helena Deland and local musician V.V. Lightbody round out the lineup.
