Fawn “Burden” – Listen

Fawn is the folk-Americana project of Liverpool based singer-songwriter Ilana Zsigmond, born in England but brought up mainly in in New Haven, Connecticut by parents who were themselves touring musicians.  ‘Burden’ is a song about overcoming struggles – whether they be in relationships or other aspects of life.  It’s being released on January 13th as a single and is the first follow up to her 2017 EP ‘Homebody‘.

Full of tender reflections ‘Burden‘ asks for assistance whilst admitting it is a lot to ask for.  Time passes on, and things don’t always get better – “can you share the burden, just a little longer please”  and  the question arises is it fair to expect someone to keep standing by you? “I can see your heart is heavy but I really need you here with me.”  Well, that really does depends on whom you’re asking.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
