Aimée Argote of ‘Des Ark’ — Crush of the Day
Aimée Argote, frontwoman for 'Des Ark' is a smart, feisty lady with a set of pipes that can silence a room. Sometimes armed with nothing more than a banjo or a miniature guitar, Aimée Argote is infamous for her passionate, energetic live shows. Over the years, Des Ark has maintained a loyal and ever-growing fanbase, despite lineup changes. Currently the band is a trio, with Noah Howard and Joshua Lee accompanying Argote's in the creation of their southern-tongued, heavily punk-influenced sound, laced with Argote's emotional, sometimes vulgar, always gorgeous songwriting.
Their newest album, 'Don't Rock the Boat, Sink the F*er' was released in 2011 to raving reviews, after nearly four years of work.
Forget beautiful, which she is, Argote's soulful voice and honest writing make her one of the rarest breeds of musicians; she was meant to do this. See 'Des Ark' live, and you'll understand what we mean. Keep an eye on their current tour schedule to find out if they're coming to a dive near you.
