NotableBurhenn released two solo albums before becoming one half of the acclaimed indie rock duo Georgie James. But she hasn't abandoned a solo career. During downtime from touring and recording, she has written songs for a third album, which could be released early next year.

Quotable"For me, songwriting is very much like storytelling," she said. "I can't jump ahead in the plot because I like to see where the plot is going to take me. I try not to have a preconceived notion about what a song is going to be about. They always surprise me."
