Her upcoming album, Silent Conversations—her sophomore release, and Lakin’s first in 5 years —is a seasons-of-a-life album that soulfully, and intimately, invites us into what proved to be a transformative internal process. This aptly-titled collection of songs unfolds a narrative of salvation through honesty.
“I wanted this album to be about things that scared me, and things that were a true vision of me,” the Southern California-based artist shares.
On Silent Conversations, Lakin homes in on her signature aesthetic which blurs the lines between pop, neo-soul, & folk. Lakin writes, produces, & arranges her recorded offerings. A smooth & sophisticated sense of harmony & melody permeate her smartly crafted pop compositions and her sensually emotive singing.
Whereas Lakin’s debut album was an eclectic expression of creativity, Silent Conversations is stylistically focused, centered around a well-developed acoustic pop-soul vision. “I wanted this one to be my bread & butter—I wanted to establish what Lakin sounds like,” she says.
Lakin will seed the path to the album through issuing a series of singles before releasing the full album in the fall of 2019.
