Shannon Lay Shares New Song From Live Session, Extends U.S. Tour

Shannon Lay, the lead guitarist from the punk band Feels, released her solo album Living Water. The record is also the inaugural record for Kevin Morby’s new imprint, Mare Records, which will be a part of Woodsist.

Morby said of Shannon, “The first time I saw Shannon my heart was broken into a million pieces. I had known her from her wonderful punk band Feels as the lead guitarist who shouted back up, but I wasn’t sure what to expect from her performing solo. But there she was – at a small bar in Los Angeles to maybe 15 people watching while she sat in a chair with an electric guitar on her knee, orange hair covering her face and a picture of Bart Simpson projected behind her. She began her set and my heart stopped the moment her voice leaped into the air – and I did what I do in those rare situations – I recorded it.”

It was at this same performance that Morby asked Shannon to let him record her album.
