June 2014 Residency at The CACTUS CAFE, Mondays 8-10pm

Looks like my welcome home to Austin, Tx is a month long residency at the Cactus Cafe! It’s one of my favorite rooms in town, full of history and all the great legends. So, I am happy to be hitting the stage with some dear friends of mine, every Monday, 8-10pm. The show is gratis, thanks to Lone Star Beer!

Live from Rockwood Music Hall in New York City, 5/30/14

Wow! That is about all I can say. I had an amazing time joined by my NYC band with drummer Diego Voglino (drums) and Ben Zwerin (bass). It’s like my friend, Danny Malone, once said–we slayed the room! Here is our set for those of you outside the Big A.

I took a stroll down the boardwalk on Coney Island with my new camera (Canon 70D).
In the midst of shooting some footage for a music video  for “Do You Remember,” a man ran up to me with a green parakeet or parrot.
It was sweet surprise and, lucky me, I caught it on film…

Live at Heart Festival, Örebro Sweden

I have spent the last week working with a wonderful group of songwriters producing a new body of work for a concert at the Live at Heart Festival in Sweden this week. This was made possible through The House of Songs, an organization based in Austin, TX that brings together songwriters from around the world to create new music. In the process, I believe I have truly made some lifelong friends. Here are two new songs, sprung from co-writes during this week: “Green” (Bobruk/DeLuna) & “Not For Sale” (Bobruk/Guthro)

House of Songs in Sweden Writers:
Mo Kenney
Dylan Guthro
Anna-Karima Holm
Bobby Bengtsson
Joel Deluna
V. Marc Fort
Tom Levin
Linda Sahlberg

About Scratch 2011: http://www.aimeebobruk.com/blog/scratch/

Lyrics:

I’m not to blame
a jealous flame
fell from the sun
and like a hungry eel
out for a kill
it wore a hole in me

Never gonna get over you
Trigger Finger

I tried to love you like the only
but now I’m scared to think it might have never shown

If hollow steel
is what I feel
two hands and steady
why ask me why
I know we tried
but failed to hit the mark

Never gonna get over you
Trigger Finger

I tried to love you like the only
but now I’m scared to think it might have never shown

Track Credits:
Recorded by AB in her little living room, 10/10/11, 1:04am

About Scratch 2011: http://www.aimeebobruk.com/blog/scratch/

Lyrics:

Everything’s almost in place,
She’s straightening her costume, powdering her face,
The letter is taped to the door where he used to sleep.

Jackson has plenty of food in his bowl,
The bills have been gathered, counted and paid,
It’s 73 degrees outside,
What a perfect day to slip away.

All the ducks are in line,
They plucked out their feathers one at a time,
Now the water has started to boil,
Such an easy crime.

Down the stairs in the garage,
A 61 convertible baby blue dodge,
She knows its the simplest chance,
The perfect circumstance.

So she turns the key,
Shuts her eyes to dream,
Ah
