Burr Settles

Burr Settles was born in the back of a stalled pickup during a 70s snowstorm in Lexington, Kentucky. Years after his parents (a writer and an ichthyologist/wood truss salesman) named him on a dare, he began cutting his musical teeth at the folk/bluegrass jams in front of a fire station on Woodland Avenue. Since then, he picked up several instruments, moved briefly to Indiana, and is currently situated in Madison, Wisconsin, where he is also pursuing a PhD for some reason. Sketches is his first full-length album. More highlights:

* Burr has toured from New York to Alaska, and among other things played the 2006 Musical Family Tree Festival in Indianapolis.
* Sketches was nominated for ?Best Americana Album? at the 2006 Madison Area Music Awards. He was also nominated for ?Best Americana Artist? and the song ?Sugar in the Raw? was nominated for ?Best Unique Song.?
* Burr founded the annual February Album Writing Month (FAWM) challenge, to write 14 songs in 28 days, which in 2006 had over 350 songwriters participate from 12 countries.

Yes, Burr is his real name.
And he has this weird obsession with armadillos. Please don?t ask.
