Come join in the fun and support the Journal and Taubman Museum with a program featuring Singer, and songwriter, Lara Taubman and her band.
Following a career as an Art curator, Lara turned her attention to music and began writing, producing, and singing. Her intention has always been to create work that is healing.
“2021 was the year I began to cover some classic gospel songs.
Singing those deep, healing sounds sparked something profound in my body and mind. I believe
part of the reason I began writing music at all was so I could climb inside of a song, to embody it.
The inspiration of classic gospel brought me that experience when I wrote these songs.
Being from the South and my roots in Appalachian music are not far from classic gospel music.
The two kinds of music have always intermingled historically.
In a way, these new songs have brought me closer to my southern background but in a deeper,
more spiritual way.”
“That ol’ feeling you get listening to good lo-fi music
via hi-fi just got a retro update via Lara, channeling the
likes of Patsy Cline and other ol’ giants of a smoky lounge
scene with that signature sound that is captivatingly
Lara and totally original.”
