Heading back to L.A. where we meet folk-pop artist Lucy LaForge aka Lucy & La Mer. Dropping her brand new track Honey, Put Your Weapons Down via Huffington Post yesterday, the track is an emotive, breezy narrative of a want to resolve a dispute. It’s a l’il gem and well worth a spin!
Lucy & La Mer is the stunning musical endeavour of Los Angeles based singer, songwriter and activist Lucy LaForge. Lucy’s sound consists of delicate indie folk melodies, alluring pop layered vocals and her signature baritone ukulele.
Her latest single “Honey, Put Your Weapons Down” is produced by Grammy Award-winning Jared Lee Gosselin (India Arie, Eminem, Corinne Bailey Rae). Featuring breathy vocals, poignantly honest lyricism and a stunning string instrumentation, “Honey, Put Your Weapons Down” is the perfect indie pop anthem. Lucy & La Mer succeeds in composing music with a direct and clear disquisition. “The central theme for the single is transitioning, most of my songwriting happens when there’s a change occurring in my life” reveals Lucy.
Lucy describes how the single was created through experimentation and the breaking down of boundaries. Lucy & La Mer aims to be a constant reminder for audiences to learn self-love, to take a break from something that is wearing you down emotionally and to focus on what’s most important. Her music beautifully blends acoustic sounds with a modern indie pop approach.
Lucy & La Mer has been featured in top-tier media outlets, including Los Angeles Times, Brooklyn Vegan and LA Weekly. Her previous debut EP received major market radio adds and charted on popular college radio stations throughout the US. She’s worked closely with women’s rights organizations, including “More Than No” and The Cabaret Con-sensual, as well as with the LGBT activist group AmBi.
