Hello, Germs! Today I bring you an artist near and dear to my heart that needs to be shared with all of you lovely people! If you’ve ever doubted the power of Twitter exposure, think again. It was about a year and a half ago that someone I followed on Twitter shared an amazing video of singer-songwriter LP performing one of the most powerful and electric songs I’d heard in the longest time. Soon after listening to this amazing performance, I binge watched all her videos available online, bought her EP, and couldn’t stop talking about her to my friends, who eventually listened to her and ended up loving her as well.
LP is an amazingly gifted individual from New York (now based in LA) who has been working in the music industry for a while now, mostly behind the scenes, writing songs for big name artists such as Rhianna and Christina Aguilera. Now though, LP is embracing the limelight with the release of her debut album Forever for Now which is available now for download on iTunes.
As an artist, LP reaches a part of the soul you had no idea existed. I watched her performances with absolute awe and appreciation for what she does, knowing that I was seeing only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Her debut album does not disappoint either. It showcases her one-of-a-kind voice and impossible range as well as her immense capacity to create a vibrant, colorful, and effervescent world through music. The breathtaking song I was gushing about earlier, “Tokyo Sunrise,” now has a beautiful music video, and I encourage all of you to go watch it and see for yourself the immense talent LP has to offer the music world. I believe this album is a unique emblem of LP’s vocal aesthetic as well as a beautiful sampling of what LP will produce in the future. Hope you enjoy!
