I had the best time at the Tin Pan South Songwriter’s Festival in Nashville last week! I co-wrote with some amazing songwriters and played my first Tin Pan round at Commodore Grille, accompanied by guitarist Jerry McPherson. There are no words to describe how talented and inclusive the Nashville writing community is, and I can’t wait to share new songs with you soon!
Lara is in the studio working on new music for 2015! Stay tuned…
I recently got together with my friends in The New Velvet to make this duet version of Sam Smith’s beautiful song ‘Stay With Me.’
Hope you enjoy it, and feel free to share it if you feel so inclined Thanks for watching!
Recently, I wrote three songs for the TV show “SAF3.” It was an inspiring and fun process. I loved getting “assignments” to compose for certain scenes/moods/musical styles. Thanks to Cory Lerios for inviting me to be a part of the project.
Here are the tunes I wrote with footage from the show-
I’m honored to be teaming up with Broadcast Music, Incorporated (BMI), for their Acoustic Lounge showcase this Tuesday, February 25th at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC. I have so much respect and admiration for the BMI staff and the many legendary artists/writers they represent…so this is really exciting for me. Also performing are these two super talented ladies: Macy Kate and Jax. If you’re in NYC, I’d love to see you at this show! It’ll be an intimate, in-the-round type setting…a great way to warm up the winter!
