Aging Actress: “Sometimes pulling you down to me, Feels like lassoing the moon” -Live at Club Tee Gee in LA (June 15, 2019)

Written by Erica Andreozzi

I am STILL IN AWE of the ABSOLUTE MAGIC that I witnessed last Sunday night at the debut performance of Aging Actress, a new project curated by the phenomenal Lauren Ruth Ward and Chris Hess (of SWIMM). Both Lauren and Chris are incredibly impressive musicians on their own, but when paired up there is a chemistry that is undeniably explosive. Their vocal harmonies will slay you silly and leave you dumbfounded like “a deer in headlights.” THIS is what I believe is going to fill stadiums with a sea of devoted fans. I feel so damn lucky to have been one of the first with stars in my eyes from this divine duo. My favorite tracks were ‘Sing Pretty‘ (“In LA, I don’t believe a word that they say, I trust they’ll give me fun until the break of day”) and ‘Lassoing the Moon’ (“Sometimes pulling you down to me, Feels like lassoing the moon”, #1 and #3 (below). Chris and Lauren also sang stunning versions of Lauren’s ‘Did I Offend You’ and Chris’ ‘Speak Politely,’ #5 and #4. These beautiful vocals were beautifully backers by Hany’s keys and John’s Sax. Do yourself and favor and head to Tee Gee’s this Sunday, 6/23 if you’d like stars in your eyes too. Be sure to grab a coat, cause you’re bound to be lathered in chills. 🤩

As an added bonus, you’ll receive a handcrafted, limited edition “zine,” handcrafted by the one and only Lauren Ruth Ward, containing original handwritten lyrics by Lauren and Chris. I luckily scooped up #4 of the limited supply!

‘Sing Pretty’

Living in LA makes writing about your feelings feel cliché,

I know I won’t stop trying to relate,

All the things we can’t escape, With words,

Try to sing pretty, try to say something you haven’t heard”

In LA, I don’t believe a word that they say,

I trust they’ll give me fun until the break of day.”

‘The Darkest Jingle’

‘Lassoing the Moon Again’

Our love is a like a window with a view,

That’s never opened for the weather make it real for you

..

I’m so proud of us, always rolling your eyes at me,

For having stars in mine at you,

Sometimes pulling you down to me, Feels like lassoing the moon.”

‘Speak Politely’ (SWIMM song)

‘Did I Offend You’ (LRW song)
