THE NEW ALBUM
This star-studded release is a collection of music written and performed by a constellation of today's leading female artists, celebrating the contributions of phenomenal women to the past, present, and future of American music.
Lara collaborates with an extraordinary multi-generational group of female guest artists on this album, including the iconic singer / songwriter Judy Collins, boundary-breaking violinist Rachel Barton Pine, singer / instrumentalist Rhiannon Giddens (2018 MacArthur Fellow), pianist Simone Dinnerstein, fast-rising cellist Ifetayo Ali-Landing, and the urban youth vocal ensemble Musicality.
This music tells the story of what women and girls can contribute to the world when they are given a chance - their dreams can make holes in the sky. The album is presented in support of PLAN International Because I Am A Girl, supporting the rights and empowerment of girls and young women around the globe, Women’s Empowerment, ending homelessness one woman - and one family - at a time, the Los Angeles Downtown Women’s Center, and The Lower Eastside Girls Club of NY, creating the next generation of environmental, entrepreneurial, and ethical leaders.
