Ali Awan Ali Awan Ali Awan was born to an immigrant father and first-generation mother just outside of Philadelphia spending most of his early life in transit. That upbringing coupled with a love for sound and expression made a life in music second nature. After his debut release “Citadel Blues”, an eastern cityscape of sampled drums, field recordings, & instrumentation dubbed “ferocious” by WBEZ’s Sound Opinions host and Chicago Tribune writer Jim DeRogatis, Awan formed an alternating live band and has been writing, touring, and recording under his name ever since. To date, he has shared stages with the likes of Natalie Prass, Low Cut Connie, Cherry Glazerr, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, Ex Hex, Vacationer, and many more. Awan’s new EP “Moon Mode” is a six song summation of his emotional state over the past 12 months, and ranges from reverb drenched swamp songs to dreamy synth meditations. The EP’s title track will be available April 9th, 2021 and the entire “Moon Mode” EP will be available June 11th, 2021 via Born Losers Records.
