LP In Conversation With is a new podcast, where I chat with independent artists and business owners who inspire me. I talk with them about what they do, their experiences and their creative journey, from where they started to where they are today.
In this episode, I chat to Bath-based singer-songwriter Lo Barnes. Lo began her music career working for recording studios and labels, as well as performing as a backing vocalist for artists including Alt-J, Florence + The Machine, Roots Manuva and The Heavy.
Since 2015, Lo has been recording under her own name alongside producer Toby Mclaren, creating mysterious and cinematic Tarantino-esque soundscapes, combined with haunting vocals and tales of heartbreak.
We chat about Lo’s new radio show The Lonely Lounge, film soundtracks that have inspired her music and the art of making creative music videos using old film techniques.
