Comedian/actor Lauren Lapkus (Orange is the New Black, Crashing, Jurassic World) and Lane Moore (Tinder Live!, Girls and the band It Was Romance) spent some time bonding on Soul Sisters over their shared love of all things '90s - which is evidenced in each of their new projects.
Soul Sisters was thrilled to be joined by the mastermind behind of one of our new favorite bands, Japanese Breakfast, whose Michelle Zauner gave us the lowdown on how their gorgeous new album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet, came about; what she does to make sure any misogyny she encounters on tour is put to an immediate end ("I'm gonna be very vocal about it"); and the best way to get back at unsupportive exes through her songwriting.
Phoebe Ryan isn't precious about holding onto things that aren't working. From her new single "Forgetting All About You" featuring Blackbear, to her life motto "destroy it to enjoy it," to her fresh approach to songwriting (be it for Usher or Britney Spears), Ryan is always looking for the bigger picture.
Writing her EP was "the only thing that was making me happy" says pronoun, aka Alyse Vellturo, who turned heartbreak into art and jumped the difficult divide between repping other artists and becoming one herself.
Allison Pierce joins this episode of Soul Sisters to explain how initially her "heart was broken by the music business just countless times" when she and her sister Cat recorded together as The Pierces a decade ago. (Though they counted big names like Lana Del Rey among their fans, "your record comes out and no one buys it," Pierce recalls.) Now with her first solo album, Year of the Rabbit, she is ready to have another go at it.
On the 20th anniversary of Lilith Fair and the album that propelled her to pop stardom with hits like "I Don't Want to Wait" and "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone," Paula Cole joins Jessie Katz and Darah Golub on Soul Sisters Podcast.
