Lakin is one of those rare artists that can be both raw and refined—expressing deeply personal truths with poetic lyrics and stately songwriting. Garnering favorable comparisons to John Mayer, Sara Bareilles, & Alicia Keys, Lakin has the distinction of opening for such acts as Sheryl Crow, Colbie Caillat, Brian McKnight, & Gladys Knight.
In her virtual shows, she hones in on her ability to engage with her audience through a series of personal stories about her music to which the listener can relate. Much like sitting together in a living room for a house show, Lakin leans heavy into the conversational aspect of music performance. In a time where connection is sorely sought after and society is finding new ways to interact, Lakin uses her performances to create a space of solace and solidarity where it is most needed.
