For Aisha Badru, the most important parts of a song are the content of the lyrics and how they're delivered. The electro-folk singer-songwriter spends so much time crafting her lyrics that production becomes an afterthought. This attention to wording has paid off when her debut album, Pendulum, dropped last year, it became an immediate hit — fans related to her vulnerability and critics fell in love with its radiant intimacy. Ahead of her June 7 EP release, Road to Self, Badru opens for Allman Brown at Club Cafe. While the songs on Pendulum came from heartbreak, Road to Self is Badru’s personal journey of learning to let go, evolve, and recognize her own worth.
