Aimee Tischer sets a high bar when it comes to musical influences: Dolly Parton, Norah Jones and Amy Winehouse. That eclectic mix comes out of Tischer’s soul in haunting melodies and harmonies. The goal is to stir others to be bold and passionate, much like the strong female performers Tischer admires. Those singer-songwriter skills were honed through osmosis during a stint living near other musicians and artists at the Washington Studios Artist Cooperative. Tischer’s four-track EP, The Darling Collection, was released in 2016.
