Lauryn Peacock’s piano pop is compelling and unconventional. Her East Coast, fast paced roots spill out of her music in colorful and interesting ways. As I listen to her album Keep It Simple Let The Sun Come Out (co-produced by Daniel Smith of Danielson), I picture a Wes Anderson movie with actors dancing in the sunrise after a crazy night they somehow just survived. There is much to digest within her songs and they’re just top notch. If Joni Mitchell were young and making music today it might sound a little bit like Lauryn Peacock.
Lauryn is going on a short tour starting this Friday. If she comes through your town be sure to check it out. She might even have her own Zany Zine of poetry and art to share with you. Show details are at the bottom of this blog.
