With some of the most beautifully understated music of this generation’s country revival, San Francisco's Lauren O’Connell is a burgeoning luminary of the alternative side to that musical world, the folk-inspired heartbeat of songs both intelligent and deeply emotive.
In March 2012, Lauren released her third full-length album Quitters, an adventurous and ambitious alt country record from an artist who has matured rapidly enough to earn comparisons with Fairport Convention, Wilco and Neil Young.
Since her 2007 debut Sitting in Chairs, Lauren has established a formidable online presence via her original music and inventive approach to cover songs, garnering over 4 million views on YouTube.
Lauren has had further success with Pomplamoose’s Nataly Dawn under the guise of My Terrible Friend, releasing their EP Room for Ghosts in 2010. She has also had her music featured on TV shows including "American Horror Story" and CBS's "The Good Wife."
Somewhere between folk and alternative pop, Alycia Lang's lyric-driven music is mindfully crafted, beautifully simple, and deeply poignant. With her return to the Bay Area in 2013, her solo project is marked by a stripped down feel with intricate and unique turns of phrase, all cleverly presented on the back of soaring melodies.
After years singing classical music with the San Fransisco Conservatory Of Music, her early recordings earned her praise from several notable producers and artists, including iconic singer songwriter, Donovan, who named her a "great new talent" in response to her cover of "Catch The Wind" from her debut album in 2006. In the years that followed, Alycia found herself writing original material and working with Grammy Award winning producers and engineers to create two EPs of original music which were released in 2008 and 2011.
In a dramatic departure from her musical past, Alycia took a 3 year hiatus in 2011 and re-entered the realm of music via the Bay Area indie rock scene where she played and sang in rock band Waterstrider and continues to have frequent vocal cameos in several other projects.
Now, in a return to her acoustic roots, where the human voice and the words it carries reign, she plans to present new recorded material in late 2016 that with surely have the influence of her eclectic musical past woven in its threads.
