The first time I saw Lauren Ruth Ward perform I couldn’t take my eyes off her, she commands the attention of the entire audience. She has this insane energy and the way she sings and moves on stage it’s like the music is just flowing through her and it washes over the audience captivating them. Her soulful vocals, unapologetic lyrics, and the way she performs like she’s exorcising demons from her own mind make her the rockstar we’ve desperately needed.

There’s a good chance you’ve heard Lola Marsh’s song “Wishing Girl” it starts with whistling and a ukulele. It’s whimsical and catchy and will be stuck in your head for days. Lola Marsh consists of Yael and Gil and the duo is just as enchanting as their music. They came to Austin all the way from Israel for SXSW and we started with an intricate discussion on Texas culture. They talked about when “y’all” was appropriate to use, visiting local bar The White Horse, and Yael’s opossum sighting.
