Laura Jean Anderson – “Lonesome No More”

“This song was written while I was driving from Arizona to Los Angeles. I was alone and with my dog at the time, after a string of bad shows. I was inspired by a new love that I had just dropped off at the airport and the melody and words came rushing into my head while driving on the 10 freeway. Also, I didn’t have any paper and was also driving. So I would write down lyrics on my thigh to remember. Whenever I stopped for gas, I would plunk it out on my unplugged electric guitar. It was hours of putting this song together, hearing it only in my mind and my thigh covered in pen marks.” – Laura Jean Anderson

‘Lonesome No More’ tells an interesting tale of a young woman who doesn’t want her significant other to leave her side.

Apparently, he has somewhere to go to, and after his departure, she spends days in a haze crying over him in solitude.

Eventually, after a few days, she doesn’t feel lonely anymore and looks forward to the remaining days left when she gets to feel her partner’s warm embrace again.

Laura Jean Anderson’s “Lonesome No More” single is featured on her debut EP, entitled, “Lonesome No More”.

“I promised myself that whatever state it was in, I would play it at my show in LA that night. I had no idea how it really would sound. So I finished it, played it that night, raw and unedited, and the song was as is. I tried to produce it and put the band on, molding it into many genres and styles and it just never fit. Finally, I just decided to record it stripped down, as I heard it while driving in my car, exactly like the first time I played it. Tyler Chester and I, with the beautiful singers J. Blynn & Pete Harper, went into an all analog studio and cut it live, no headphones, in the room. No edits, all to tape, 2nd take. Exactly how the song was intended in my head.” – Laura Jean Anderson
