Yesterday, we launched the Lady Brain Presents website, and today my homie Cathryn Beeks from Listen Local Radio launched the Lady Brain Presents Podcast. The inaugural episode featured your girl and the incredible Marlo Smith.
Thanks to Brendan McCourt and BPM Live Sessions for featuring me on their series. Here's a look at "Run" - a song I wrote about how anxiety wreaks havoc in my life sometimes. Enjoy, and try not to have a panic attack.
1. one drop of water and the lake still shakes
stomping my boots but the mud's still caked
i gotta find a way to let this go
a pile of bricks sticking to my chest
weighing me down, they will not decongest
i tried to kill this ache but still it grows
how do i breathe now?
there's no air in my lungs
how do i climb down?
this ladder's out of rungs
how do i slow down?
when all i ever did was
all i ever did was run?
2. should i be drinking?now, well probably not
order a whiskey cause it's worth a shot
maybe i'll drown this fear before it drowns me
trouble with worry is it won't get gone
cause you can never put your finger on
something you feel but you can not see
Ok, so this probably doesn't count as real press but I had to share. My dad is compiling a list of the Top Ten Albums of his life, and included my album Lights Out on the list. I'll just be over here crying that my dad took the time to thoughtfully review my album. Check it out!
I am extremely grateful to the Women's March San Diego team (particularly Alisandra and Poppy) for giving me an opportunity to perform at this year's march. Special thanks to Karen Lindenberg and Becca Jay for lending their time and talent to join me. Also to my dear friend Lizzie Wann for always showing up. What a great day to be a woman! See below links for some news coverage of the event!
UPDATE! I am planning recording this song professionally with a full women's choir. If you're interested in participating or contributing to recording expenses, please contact me and/or Venmo your donation, big or small, to @lindsayannwhite
I'm excited to share that I'll be presenting at this month's San Diego Songwriter Meetup on the topic of DIY Publicity. I will be sharing few stories of how I've developed publicity over the last decade as an independent artist. Learn a little about working with publicists and a lot about becoming your own publicist. Discover different types of media outlets, how to reach them, and what they're looking for in a pitch. I will also talk about creating your own news, maximizing each piece of press, and building genuine relationships.
Great news! I just received word that I was selected to be on the lineup for this year's Tucson Folk Festival. It's been one of my goals to book more folk festivals around the country, so I am very excited! More details to come, but I'm scheduled to perform on April 7th! Read more about the festival here.
