Lauren Calve

Sounds of searching from Americana artist Lauren Calve

Solid voice, solid backing band, well thought-out lyrics dealing with feeling lost and out of place; all in all Lauren Calve makes a convincing Americana artist. “Be my home” she implores on the refrain to her latest single of the same name, as if she is being driven to desperation by feelings of being out of place. On the track, Calve yearns for the same thing every Americana artist yearns for, an idyllic, peaceful, rural America that probably never was, but nevertheless lives on in the popular imagination as something to give people hope for a different world.

You can catch Lauren Calve March 9th at Black Cat.
