I never thought I’d catch myself posting about an artist who was signed to Jack Johnson’s Brushfire record label, but Malaysian singer/songwriter Zee Avi has proved me wrong. Avi became noticed by the folks at Brushfire thanks to her many hits on self-promotional performances posted to youtube, and rightfully so. If you like cute folksy tunes, a timeless sound of jazz meets island, and ukulele’s then Zee Avi is made for you. Her self-titled release features twelve summer-friendly tracks, including opener “Bitter Heart”, streaming below.
Zee Avi is currently on tour with Pete Yorn until the end of August, you can check to see if she hits a city near you here.
