On September 4th, Gaelynn Lea released a new album: "The Living Room Sessions - Gaelynn Lea LIVE". It was recorded in her apartment - each piece is hand-picked from her weekly shows on YouTube. All of the instrumental tracks are based on improvisational prompts she received from her online audience; they were created on the spot using only her violin, her looping pedal, and her imagination.
