Indie rock singer-songwriter Lady Lamb (aka Aly Spaltro) has released two new singles, “We’ve Got a Good Thing Going” and “Arizona,” over the past few weeks. She is currently in the midst of a European tour and recently added a series of “evening with” events that will take place at various City Winery location across the United States later this year.

“We’ve Got a Good Thing Going” was inspired by Spaltro’s experience watching a young woman fearlessly bungee jump off the side of the Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas.

“It was nearly 1am, closing time, and I was pressed against the back wall of the observatory as I watched her suit up alone with a look of total calm,” Spaltro said. “It really made me reflect on my fears – my fear of living, in some cases. This song is my way of confronting my anxiety and deciding I’d like to make more of an effort to be fearless, because life and I have a good thing going.”

“Arizona” is a nostalgia power ballad, its key statement and question, “It was all so lovely / It wasn’t all bad / Was it now, looking back?” The weight in Spaltro’s voice is moving. Not in an emotional sense so much as every syllable feels lived in and pored over. Her vocals legitimately, almost tangibly push the listener. Lady Lamb is currently touring Europe with support from singer-songwriter Tōth (aka Alex Toth).

“Even in the Tremor” marks Aly Spaltro’s latest full-length LP following 2015’s After and it’s a remarkable achievement because, among other things, it’s the first time in her career that Aly Spaltro is singing explicitly about herself. Between confessing a tantrum in a batting cage (Little Flaws), telling the story of her parent’s kiddie-pool baptism (Young Disciple) and singing openly about untangling her girlfriend’s wet hair (Deep Love), Even in the Tremor is deeply rooted in the people and places, extraordinary and mundane, that have shaped Spaltro into the self-determining artist she is today.

Known for her keen observations of others, Spaltro now turns her multifaceted ruminations inward; She calls out from dreams, peers into churches, has fits of rage, and struggles to get out of her head long enough to love herself and those around her. Commitment to creating only what is necessary and urgently felt is the key to appreciating Spaltro’s fearless songwriting, as emotional as it is philosophical. Even in the Tremor signifies the arrival of her most sonically soaring and brutally honest album to date.

To many, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper (aka Aly Spaltro) is an enigma. Her songs are at once intimate and unbridled- both deeply personal and existentially contemplative. Spaltro is a fearless performer who can command a pitch-black stage with nothing more than her voice. Yet, when the band bursts in and the lights come up, what began as a demonstration of restraint shifts seamlessly into an emphatic snarl.

It was in Spaltro’s home state of Maine that she first found her voice among thousands of films in the independent rental store where she worked the closing shift. After hours, Spaltro would create songs completely uninhibited by musical conventions, learning to play and sing as she hit record.
