Local Phenom Lauren Shera to Make Bonnaroo Debut and Release Solo LP
April 25, 2011
On June 9, just two days after Lauren Shera’s album Once I was a Bird is released, she’ll head to Manchester, Tennessee for the biggest music festival on the planet: Bonnaroo. Shera will join the likes of Eminem, Arcade Fire, The Strokes and Mumford & Sons for the 4-day event, which is expected to draw more than 70,000 sweaty bodies.
The Princess of Folk’s June 7 release, features 12 original tracks including the finger plucking gem, “Endless Sea.”
On May 3, you can check out Shera locally in a more intimate setting at Moe’s Alley in Santa Cruz, where she’s opening for rockabilly queen, Wanda Jackson.
Shera has one of those voices that will have you craving more. Take my word, you’ll be hearing a lot about this young talent in the near future. Stay tuned for my full review of Once I was a Bird.
