Bridget Kearney Releases Second Solo Album, “Snakes of Paradise”

Bridget Kearney: Snakes of ParadiseLake Street Dive bassist Bridget Kearney has just released a new album called Snakes of Paradise that features some of her most personal music yet. Her second full-length album is also a sort of homage to melancholy masterpieces.

“I have always been a junkie for SAD music—your Beck Sea Changes, your Elliott Smith Either/Ors, your Alanis Morisette’s ‘Jagged Little Pills’… these are my jams,” she wrote on Instagram. “This is probably the saddest music I’ve ever made, so I love it. I also think it’s the most raw and honest I’ve been able to be in song, so far. Singing about human stuff that sometimes humans have a hard time talking about, or at least I do! Metaphorically, it’s about the snakes that whisper in our ears and our best efforts to rise above and remember that we are actually in paradise. Right now!”

Kearney worked with producer Robin McMillan, and together they played most of the instruments on the album. Special guests include Josh Grange, Christina Courtin, and Delicate Steve.
