Five years ago, award-winning singer-songwriter Lakin found herself at a painfully challenging intersection between love and loss. She had to choose between the love of her life and the love of her spiritual community. Through rigorous internal dialogue and reflection, Lakin made sense and processed her predicament.
Her upcoming album, Silent Conversations—her sophomore release and 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, and folk. Lakin writes, produces, and arranges her recorded offerings. A smooth, sophisticated sense of harmony and 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 and butter—I wanted to establish what Lakin sounds like,” she says.
The sophomore album is available on all digital platforms and the physical album is available to be purchased now.
