Daughter of the Sea


Dates: September 15, 2022 - September 18, 2022

Run Time: 60 mins

Venue: MAAS Building Garden


Laura Lizcano will be presenting a preview of the music from her upcoming album Daughter of the Sea as a series of three intimate performances, featuring Erin Busch on cello, Jake Kelberman on guitar, and Lizcano on vocals and ukulele.

Written largely during quarantine, Daughter of the Sea is an internal look into Lizcano’s life, addressing a wide range of topics from breaking generational traumas and grappling
with immigrant identity, to sexual desire and learning radical self-love. Featuring tracks sung in both English and Lizcano’s native Spanish, the album is a reflection of her experiences
with and feelings of belonging to something bigger than the boxed identities imposed by culture and society.

Lyrically, the album pulls inspiration from singer-songwriters like Fiona Apple, Mon Laferte and Regina Spektor, while it is influenced musically by the likes of Paul Simon, David Bowie and American composer, Caroline Shaw. The artist’s love for classical music is apparent on Daughter of the Sea, with the esteemed Daedalus Quartet performing instrumental interludes throughout the album and providing instrumentation on several key tracks. The interludes were composed by Philly composer Erin Bush.
