On the 19th January LP joined her fiancée, in one of her favourite places – Joshua Tree to support the release of Lauren Ruth Ward’s latest single titled “Valhalla” (great song!!). Joshua Tree has a special place in LP’s heart, she often refers to this National Park in her interviews. Even in the latest article for Riff Magazine by Roman Gokhman LP said:
“For me, the desert is such a huge experience. Coming from the extreme weather and wetness of New York to this climate has been a huge switch for me. It altered everything from my attitude to my creativity, to my outlook. The desert is a symbol for me. There’s something that speaks to me when I go out there. I always try to get out there for some kind of creative mission, every chance I get.”
At Joshua Tree LP and her ‘home band’ (Mike Del Rio & Nate Campany) wrote “Girls Go Wild” and “The Power” that ended up on LP’s latest “Heart To Mouth” record. The article I refer to is titled: “LP swings the pendulum across extremes on new album, tour” and can be found here. Do check it out, it’s worth reading.

But back to present times. During Lauren’s concert at Pappy and Harriet’s (music venue near Joshua Tree National Park in Pioneertown, California), LP joined her girl to back her up in vocals to “Sheet Stains”, and the energy they both shared on stage was unbelieveable. As a proof I’m attaching all 3 videos that were shared from that night, from all possible angles.
As a trivia, “Sheet Stains” is a song from LRW’s debut full length album, ‘Well, Hell’ (released in 2017, with worldwide release in February 2018). Studio version of this track was also recorded with LP in backing vocals. Also, LP’s whistles were used in LRW’s “Did I Offend You“, another track from her debut ‘Well, Hell’ album. Both songs can be found on LRW’s Soundcloud account, click here.
This Friday, LP starts her US tour. At the opening concert at The Observatory in Santa Ana, LP will be joined by two supporting artists: Lauren Ruth Ward and Slugs. Both LRW and Slugs are known from incredible performances, so make sure to get to the venue early, you won’t be dissapointed! During this tour LP will have in total 8 supporting artists that will be rotating depending on the venue.
Supporting artists to perform with LP during her US Tour are: Lauren Ruth Ward (10 concerts), Slugs (1 concert), Andy Allo (1 concert), Yoke Lore (5 concerts), Korey Dane (5 concerts), Georgi Kay (5 concerts), Jim and Sam (3 concerts), The Tulips (1 concert), 76th Street (1 concert) and The Years (2 concerts).
