Jess Lamb and The Factory
For fans of: Lana Del Rey, Florence + The Machine
In response to a year marked with isolation and polarity, Jess Lamb and The Factory release the album, You Are – a collection of songs and mantras celebrating personal empowerment, unity and the wonder of human life.
The opening song, Come On Over, brings a message of hope, that loneliness is temporary and love is within your reach.
“You don't have to be alone. Friends are everywhere. If you ever need some love, reach out and I'll be there.”
Explosions in the Sky parallels personal struggle and realizing one's own power, with humanity's celestial origins and earthly existence. “Oh no. Another star dies. Explodes. Fire in the sky. You lose hope. See nothing but the night. Look close. A new flicker of light.”
You Are concludes with the song Beautiful – a mantra of human affirmation featuring a diverse female choir, including the voices of Siri Imani, Kate Wakefield, Krystal Peterson, Molly Sullivan, Anna Applegate, Freedom Nicole Moore, Adalia Powell, Olivia Kathryn Hinds and Karla Weisenberger. “You are beautiful. You are powerful. You can make it.”

“Interestingly, and importantly, it doesn’t just capture the sort of "we’re all in this together" isolation of living through the country’s worst pandemic since 1918, but the expanded sense of togetherness that’s coalesced around the desire - and need - for diversity in every aspect of our lives.”~Jared Bowers [read full review »]
