In celebration of the new moon, rising singer/songwriter and human rights advocate Lou Ridley returns with a surprise new EP titled Graveyard Demos. The four-track project, which fearlessly calls out each of her exes by name, is a raw and unedited look inside the ebbs and flows of the artist’s past love interests with songs written about them in real time. Three of the four tracks were written and recorded in her bedroom after listening to 8-bar loops sent from producer Keith Askey, while “sam” can clearly be heard recorded in the corner of a chatty Hollywood party. The project showcases the artist’s ability to effortlessly transcend across multiple genres of r&b, soul, country, and pop, all while never sacrificing her vocal and songwriting prowess.
