Personal,and soulful. This album like Lady Lamb is a "gem"
Lady Lamb never disappoints! I can't wait to hear her perform these tunes in Durham, NC next month!
A true artist
I had the privilege of seeing Aly Spaltro perform last night in DC and it was the most intimate show I have ever been to in my life. Towards the end of her set she took a few minutes to explain the concept and inspiration behind this new EP. Her words were so touching and heartfelt. I felt a connection that night with everyone in that room as she pointed out how there is so much aggression in the world now, and how it is important to stay "emotionally vulnerable" and sensitive towards people and things we may not understand. This EP is very different from her other albums, but give it a few listens and I'm sure you will be able to connect with at least one song. My favorite song is "We are nobody else,"-the song she ended with last night. Support true artists like Aly Spaltro.
About Lady Lamb
Originally Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, Lady Lamb is the stage name used by Aly Spaltro, a singer and songwriter whose music is a beguiling and imaginative fusion of folk, pop, and indie rock. Spaltro was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire in 1990, and relocated to Brunswick, Maine with her family in 2003. A serious film enthusiast, Spaltro became a regular customer at a video rental shop in Brunswick, Bart & Greg's DVD Explosion, and after graduating from high school, she took a job at the shop during a gap year before entering art school. Spaltro was working the closing shift at DVD Explosion, and with the permission of the owners, she used the space as a makeshift music studio after hours, writing and recording songs on makeshift gear from late at night into early in the morning. In 2007, she began releasing home-crafted recordings of her songs, featuring her own artwork and sold at a local music store; instead of billing herself as Aly Spaltro, she used the name Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, taken from some late-night jottings in her journal. Hoping to expand her boundaries as a musician, Spaltro moved to Portland, Maine in 2008, and began making a name for herself on the local music scene. In 2013, she was approached by Brooklyn, New York's Ba Da Bing Records to record an album, and Ripely Pine became Lady Lamb the Beekeeper's first nationally distributed release. The album earned enthusiastic reviews and led to extensive touring in the United States, Europe, and the United Kingdom. She jumped to Mom + Pop Records for her next full-length album, 2015's After. It landed on the Billboard rock, independent, and Heatseekers albums charts. She followed it in late 2016 with the vulnerable Tender Warriors Club EP, which saw her officially crop her pseudonym to Lady Lamb. ~ Mark Deming
