Americana Highways brings you this premiere of Lauren Monroe’s song “Sparrow,” from her forthcoming album Messages From Aphrodite, due to be available this fall.  The album was produced by Lauren Monroe and Jim Scott, and the “Sparrow” video will be released in July.

“Sparrow” is Lauren Monroe on lead vocals and djembe; Dylan Rose on acoustic guitar; Sebastian Steinberg on cello and upright bass; Brian Whelan on piano and Hammond Organ; and Jim Scott on little drum.

Lauren Monroe has one of those raw, human voices — both her vocal tone and the voice of perspective expressed in her songwriting.  Her vocals blend with the beautiful ring of the guitar strings, as the song opens to the living process of grieving.
