Louise Post (of Veruca Salt), The Blue Room Nashville
April 25 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$25.88
This Event is General Admission – Standing Room Only -> Louise Post is best known as the co-frontwoman of the celebrated act Veruca Salt whose songs like “Seether” and “Volcano Girls” are still in regular rotation on alternative rock radio. Although Veruca Salt has consistently released music with Post as the sole constant member, “Sleepwalker” finds Post stepping out as a solo artist for the first time. Aptly titled, Post was a sleepwalker as a child, sometimes making it as far as down the street to the back door of her friend’s house in the middle of the night. More often, her parents or big brother found her banging away tunelessly at the piano, fully asleep.
Appropriately, the songs on her solo debut flowed out of her in the form of insistent melodies in the fugue state between awake and asleep, and even waking her up from the depth of her dreams. “Out of nowhere, these songs started flowing out of me and almost appeared to be writing themselves” Post explains. “What was making itself so clear to me during the pandemic was that this was my purpose: writing music, writing songs and releasing them.”
Friend Matt Drenik (Battle Me, Lyons) stepped in as producer after hearing some early demos. “I’m a social creature and I love the magic of working with others. I also need to be held accountable, and I really believed in Matt and was excited about working with him as an artist and collaborator.” she explains.
