It’s not often I get to do an interview with someone who is truly open and candid about their life and their personal journey. Country music singer and songwriter Lawnie Wallace was gracious enough to take to time to talk to me about her new album, The Lost Years (available now to purchase), and to share the bittersweet journey that transpired and led to the creation of her most recent music.
In this interview Lawnie talks about her ten year hiatus, how she came back to writing music, and her love for phone apps and Macs. She even shared with us her favorite superhero! She is an absolute gem and it was a pleasure to speak with her. Check it out!
What is it like to be back in the music scene after your ten year hiatus?
For me it’s actually very surreal because it’s been such a long time since I’ve been in the music scene. I’m so overwhelmed with it all because I’m so close to the music and it’s my first time writing a full album all on my own and producing it along with the help of Ruben Huizenga, my other producer and help me bring out the music that was living in my head for so long. Coming back from the dark and back into the light again, it just makes me so grateful. If there was one word to describe how I feel it would be gratitude. I’ve had this chance again to bring my music to the forefront, so that people can hear me and hear the struggles that I have been through over the last ten years.
