Tundra

Tundra

I tried so hard to show you the light

Made believe, we could get through the night

But now I can hear you
And it all makes sense

You’re eyes I know, did you ever know mine

But how is it so

You won’t let the golden light glow

Well I can run in the rain without your hand

Gave all I had to know this land

Mmmm

Out in the Tundra,

Cold enough to freeze the air

And in the Tundra,

Cold enough to put me there

And in the Tundra,

Cold and dark if you can bear it

You’re beautiful but I can’t bear it


(Translated to Japanese)

We settled here, just for a while

And like a dream
Was it worth the while

Oh where is the sunrise,
I can’t see clear


You’re all I held when we turned out the light

And all of our past

No more than words to fill your melody

An echo of a broken dream


(Pre Chorus in Japanese)
(Chorus)

Bridge

Out in this barren land

You’re all I ever knew

All I ever knew

Till now


And In the baren winds

They taught me how to go

They’d take me home

For now


Chorus

Coda

Out in the Tundra , oooo

Oh in the Tundra, oooo



Well I can run in the rain without your hand

Gave what I had to know this land

Biography:

Abøn grew up in Alberta, Canada, where she began studying piano and ballet at a young age. She went on to form her first band in 2005 as the drummer, and soon after, a duo with her sister in 2007 where her path in songwriting began. She pursued music and dance throughout Biochemistry studies at her local University, but in her final year, switched paths and fled to Toronto where she completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance and continued exploring her training and performance career in dance, musical theatre, film and music in Toronto, New York, and Copenhagen.

Alongside two classmates, she formed the A Capella trio “The Willows” where she found her passion for writing and arranging close harmonies. The Willows released their first album This Is Christmas in 2015, and full length original album Tea For Three in 2017. They have since toured Canada and Russia, their music is featured on Hallmark films, and receives radio play internationally.

Alongside her work with The Willows, she has been working on her solo project Abøn. Through this, she was accepted as a Musician in Resident at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in 2016 and 2018 and was one of six Canadian artists to be selected for the Master songwriter residency with Steven Page at the National Music Centre in Calgary. She is a jury member for Factor Canada, and the Western Canadian Music Awards.

The name Abøn represents two core values rooting the sum of her creations; harmony and intention. The name is half- Danish, half- English and translates to mean A Prayer while also representing her familial roots . Prayer is intention, and her intention behind every detail is harmony.

Abøns’ interest in multi-linguistic collaborations will bring her to Tokyo later this year to perform and release her first single Tundra. Stay tuned for more updates!
