Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Lara Ewen tells stories, most of which are true. The semi-autobiographical nature of her work blends both the real and the imagined, and the musical landscape she navigates dips into country, Americana, and singer/songwriter influences, drawing comparisons to musicians who sometimes get summarily lumped into the folk category, such as Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams and Jonatha Brooke.
Her first full-length album, Ghosts and Gasoline, was released in spring 2007. Produced by Allen Farmelo (Ian Gillan, Rachel Z), it followed 2002's Clear EP, which was a five-song bare-bones acoustic project. Both albums are currently available through all major online outlets.
On September 20, 2013, Lara released The Wishing Stone Songs, an 11-track album produced at the now-defunct GaluminumFoil Studios in Brooklyn. The recording features performances from Lara's friends and members of the NYC music community, including Cat Popper on upright bass (Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Ryan Adams); Tarrah Reynolds and Eleanor Whitmore on violin (Alicia Keys, Harry Connick Jr., and Regina Spektor, Kelly Willis, and Steve Earle, respectively); and Gerald Menke on pedal steel (Justin Townes Earle, Ari Hest).
