Summer love with July Flame & Laura Veirs

Portland's own Laura Veirs has done it again with her seventh album July Flame. Her new album as described on her website "explores the emotion of mid-summer. Drenched in wood smoke, sunlight, pollinators, pastoral dales, fireworks and warm nights, her lyrics explore the dichotomy between one’s desire for permanence and security and the realization that such things rarely exist. Nowhere on the album is this inherent tension more crystallized than on the title track." It is truly beautiful and I would say some of her best work. I am so excited to see her play at The Tractor Tavern on March 13th!

Here's one of my other favorite Laura Veirs's songs:
