FOLK: Folk Pop, WORLD: Celtic
The Mimi Burns Band began touring Europe just after their first album release in 1999.
Mimi has had a radio show for the past five years, based out of Northern Claifornia, where she is dedicated to helping artists get their music heard.
In 1998 after years of playing in cover bands, Mimi was told to write her own music, so she began collaboration with some of the Northern Bay Areas best artists including Matt Feiszli and Stephen Tyler. Her various styles include midwest feeling folk rock as well Celtic music from her Irish heritage. These genres have stuck with her writing through both albums.
She has a great ability to tell stories.
Mimi's first album, "Slipping Away" was produced by Barry Levinson in Los Angeles. The band Mimi chose were musicians from around the globe and for their first album, the band met for the first time on a Wednesday night, Mimi and her guitarist Steve were married that Friday. For their honeymoon, Mimi, Steve and the band drove south. By Saturday the band were recording their album in Los Angeles.
There was a great deal of press and record companies interesed in the band, but the band declined the record company deals due to lack of negotiation.
Pulling together ideas and people, she formed a band and went overseas to be heard.
After inspirational pub packed nights,Mimi and her band decided to work on their second album for another tour.
The second album "Ballade of Ned Haywood", was inspired by an old ships captain whom Mimi met one night while staying as a guest in a castle in England. Ned asked her to marry him and sail on his yacht with him through the Mediterranean for the rest of their lives.
Mimi kindly declined so he requested that she write a song for him, which quickly became the album title.
Mimi's father sings a hauntingly, image producing, harmony with his Irish Tenor vocals on this track with Mimi.
The album was pre-produced with Jerry Becker (former road manager for Train) and Jurgen Krehnke.
Recorded in May of 2001, at OTR studios in Belmont, Mimi chose to have 5 time Grammy nominee Cookie Marenco produce the second album.
After a third overseas tour, and two albums in three years, the band are all taking a long needed break to have and raise children.
Mimi is never far from her next album and she is dedicated to her fan base through-out the globe, so you can bet she will be heading out to your area soon.
