Wake up! ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Leah Speckhard to premiere her Sleepwalker EP!
Who is Leah Speckhard? Well, let's allow her to introduce herself and her EP!
"Moving to Manhattan and then Brooklyn, I felt both inspired by and lost in the NYC music scene," Speckhard told us. "I felt the pangs of growing up, or refusing to grow up, on this EP. I was really influenced, particularly on songs like 'Time Machine,' by reading about the delayed development many twenty-somethings experience in a Girls-esque world. I really wanted an escape from having to make choices: even though I knew I was blessed to have so many options, it felt overwhelming at times. Where do you throw your energy, your life, your dreams? Both professionally and personally, if you're lucky your twenties tend to be where you figure these things out, or at least get angst-y and self-involved about those things. I saw myself and a lot of my friends struggling. What career do I pursue, what man/woman do I love? How do I make a difference as only one person in this crazy, messed up world? A lot of those questions can be really hard to answer, and I turned to music to try to express that primal yearning to be young and carefree again. I wanted something I could both dance and cry to on this EP."
That's some pretty deep thinking right there!
