Something is certainly in the water down in the nation’s capital. Just a few weeks ago, Washington, D.C. native Ari Lennox shared her sophomore album, age/sex/location. Shortly thereafter, PG County native Reggie Becton returned with the second single from his upcoming project, Sad Boy Vol. 1. Now, LVRN’s Alex Vaughn is carrying the baton with her new project, The Hurtbook.
The eight-track project offers a window into how the evolving artist views past relationships, love and self-improvement. Alex Vaughn manages to be both honest and vulnerable while taking fans along this emotive journey.
“All the songs that I’ve ever created started with me recording myself at the piano,” Alex Vaughn told Essence about her process of creating relatable, vulnerable music.
“It’s there that I’m always the most vulnerable when I’m articulating my feelings. I wanted to show the world me, in my rawest form, and to show people that it isn’t wrong to own your feelings because it can be quite powerful.”
Alex Vaughn is not done here. She is set to perform at the ONE Musicfest in Atlanta, Georgia this week. The Washington, D.C. native also has plans to reschedule her album listening event at a later date. Not to mention, more live shows could be in the works for this fall or winter.
