Featured Release This Week From Lake Street Dive + Studio One Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Jun 11, 2018

is the new album from the Boston-based band Lake Street Dive.  What is striking about the record is the evolution of their sound- the strong foundation of soulful, jazzy classic pop remains, but with a new rock and roll edge added.  It's a very appealing sound, and it certainly doesn't hurt that the songwriting on Free Yourself Up is top notch.  Many of the new songs were written or co-written by Iowa City native Bridget Kearney, who plays bass in the band.  Kearney and her bandmates Rachael Price (lead vocalist), Mike Olson (guitar and trumpet), and Mike Calabrese (drums) self-produced the album in Nashville with engineer Dan Knobler.  Lake Street Dive says that "Free Yourself Up is about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself, no matter what's going wrong."
