Singer/songwriter Laura Burhenn graced West LA's Troubadour stage on Tuesday, November 15, opening for William Fitzsimmons. Previously releasing three LPs under the moniker The Mynabirds, Burhenn has carved out a niche for herself as a restless crafter of unique indie pop gems. Her most recent release, 2015's "Lovers Know," took her from one end of the US to the next while in the process of writing and recording. I was able to catch her last year at The Echo with a full band in tow however this night's performance at the Troubadour called for a more intimate and scaled back approach, opting instead to accompany herself on keyboard.
Throughout her set, Burhenn showed herself to be disarmingly charming while causin he crowd to swoon with delight to her graceful melodies.
