Lauren K. Newman of Portland, Oregon plays everything. "LKN is a golden god. I've seen her outshred killer opening acts missing a G string. I've seen her barechested and unabashedly fucking her guitar in the middle of a solo. She's magnificent as a horse––powerful, beautiful and as wild as she is in control. She's a fucking jungle cat–– graceful as she is killer deadly. If rock and roll is to be saved from the banks of the next generation of loop stations, it will be LKN who we will rally behind.
