Artist of The Month: LP Unleashes The Heart in ‘Free To Love’


After providing the launchpad to stardom for a number of other artists, the skyrocketing songwriter known as LP has outgrown her role as the woman you’ve never heard of but whose work you know by heart. The New York native has written hits for Rihanna (“Cheers”) and Christina Aguilera (“Beautiful People”), among others, and is now shifting her focus to a rapidly-rooting solo career. After two albums and a new EP, LP has delivered a magnificent collection of soulful tracks on her Warner Bros. debut Forever For Now.

With a diminutive presence that defies her booming, soulful delivery, LP – often dressed like a female 60s-era Dylan – has picked a strangely fitting accompaniment in the ukulele, which serves as a simple root for her kaleidoscopically complex and captivating voice. Produced by Grammy winner and Warner Bros. Records chairman Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Dave Matthews Band), Forever For Now brings a no-bullshit attitude to an open-hearted storyteller’s charm for a completely captivating listening experience. Pick it up on iTunes.
