The Burn Ins are an Award-Winning Female-Fronted Canadian Indie Blues Rock Band from Elkford BC/Camrose AB. Their music will take you on a delightfully dark journey into a foot-stomping good time. Aaron Lyall just wants to bang on his drums all day, Aaron Mokry has guitar licks so tasty they make your mom’s cooking look bad, and bassist Kristine Lyall fronts this power trio with her own brand of creamy soulful vocal stylings.
Excitement is building for getting back in the studio with producer Jonathan Anderson this winter for their upcoming project! After recording their last album “On The Inside” with Anderson at Protection Island Recording in Maple Ridge, BC, they saw much success. The Burn Ins have been gaining momentum and have no plans to burn out any time soon.

A few favourite stops have been Nashville and Toronto, and their 3 week tour in Japan was an experience they will never forget.
Getting hit by a car while riding a motorcycle harshly reminded Kristine and Aaron Lyall that LIFE IS SHORT. So after their recovery they decided to sell most of their possessions, rent out their house, leave their tiny hometown behind and take the band on the road full-time... with almost zero experience and no clue what would happen next. They don’t regret it!
