Hilary Ladd, Katie Bestvater and Nienke Izurieta are turning heads in the East Coast music community with a sound and chemistry that is unique to the region. The trio, known as Ladd & Lasses, weave rich musical textures through their instruments (guitar, cello, and violin) and voices, creating a chamber folk sound that is modern, yet timeless. 

Their debut album, She Wanders, features Ladd’s stunning vocals and gifted wordplay. Known for her epiphany-laden lyrics, Ladd’s creations blend seamlessly with Katie’s and Nienke’s string work, creating a tapestry of harmonies that bring each song to life. Recoded by Corey Bonnevie at Monopolized (Little You Little Me, Motherhood), She Wanders captures the band in a raw, yet polished form. 

Ladd & Lasses are currently booking dates in support of She Wanders, and will tour Eastern Canada in support of the disc throughout 2018.
