Some 3,187 miles apart from each other, the cities of Boston, Massachusetts, and Lisbon, Portugal, both offer their own rich cultural heritage, especially when it comes to music. And at a time when social distancing is the norm, it’s refreshing and encouraging to find such vast transatlantic distance bridged by an exciting new project borne from both cities and nourished by the expansive musical spaces in between. The Burnt Pines are a multicultural marvel, chiefly comprised of a trio of talented musicians who first came together at a Lisbon recording studio in the summer of 2018, and in a relatively short period of time rose to the challenge of intercontinental recording, with the dozen tracks on, The Burnt Pines highlighting gorgeously textured melodies and penetratingly beautiful lyrics.
