'Sing Joyfully' by the LA Ladies Choir

Sunday afternoon / September 12 / 5pm

Family and Teenage Teardrops are proud to present the release of 'Sing Joyfully' - the debut EP by the LA Ladies Choir.

With a live LA Ladies Choir performance.

The L.A. Ladies Choir, is a 30+ piece band of women and children who perform choral arrangements of songs by Leonard Cohen, Yoko Ono, and Marvin Gaye, as well as originals composed by various choir members. These members include songwriters Becky Stark (Lavender Diamond, The Decemberists), Aska Matsumiya (The Sads, Moonrats), Diva Dompe (Blackblack, Pocahaunted), and Anna Oxygen, as well as creatives like pastry chef Jenny Park and Secret Shop vintage-store owner Kitty Jensen, and many many others! "We wanted to create this positive feminine energy, not against anything, but just this beautiful energy of strength and power for something, by women," Aska Matsumiya says.

Becky Stark articulates The LA Ladies Choir philosophy as follows: "We are a collective of women devoted to singing together joyfully! When we sing we experience the pleasure of our voices. And when we are together we organize our experience according to the principle of being kind above all things. Our music is the sound of this! We recognize that music is a resource for strength and we have the ability to magnify our strength by coming together and sharing our joy!"

Sing Joyfully is released by LA vinyl/casette label Teenage Teardrops, and produced by the legendary Jim Scott.

Proudly sponsored by Babycakes, serving delicious vegan, gluton-free baked goods!
