I really like Call It What It Is by Laura Jean Anderson. Think Janis Joplin meets Patsy Cline. Before the LA based musician was releasing a string of rootsy singles, she was busking on the streets of Peru. That’s true love of art. While winning Support from NPR, Noisey, Salon, and Fader – Lauren’s aim is to pay homage to her personal heroes in the tradition of storytelling. She notes, ” I am such a lover of old music but love when a contemporary artist strikes my heart. I love what Alabama Shakes, Kendrick Lamar, Nick Hakim and the new Leon Bridges record are doing to the American tradition of music”. Give it a listen!
