Take Off The Costume: Lauren Duski – “Costume Party”

Lauren Duski

“Costume Party”

Midwestern Girl

Lauren Duski has such a great voice.  I love when an artist bears their soul without overproduction, just barenaked honesty.  Originally from Gaylord, Michigan, Duski was on the Voice, finishing runner-up.  With her voice and the beautiful songs she writes, I’m amazed she didn’t come in first.  Even though she is considered country, her music really crosses into the indie/folk realm.  Duski is certainly not ‘new country/pop’, but has so much more substance than that.  To me, she is taking the reins from Bobbi Gentry, writing honestly about life.  “Costumer Party” reminds me “Dress” by PJ Harvey in that, all those pretty doodads are just that; take them off, and the real beauty shines through.  This is great music.  Listen and learn.
