While it’s possible you heard her self released collection of songs, Righteous Girl, back in 2016, Laura Jean Anderson is just now embarking on the career of a lifetime in 2018. The L.A. based artist has stepped out into the spotlight with her debut single released by B3SCI Records “Silence Won’t Help Me Now” which premiered on NPR today.
The song is an unapologetic anthem with some retro production twinges; a calling to raise arms and speak loud in 2018.
Anderson reveals the inspiration behind her single, citing the current political and social climate as one she has learned to call out. She felt a need to feel, to speak, to hear, and to prevail.
The song started with how frustrated I felt being told I can’t do what I want as a woman. Once the election happened that feeling of frustration heightened and I felt like my hope dwindled, like I’d never be heard or understood. So I finished the song as an anthem to speak up – a personal pep talk to stand up for the things I believe in.

Laura Jean Anderson will be announcing a plethora of new shows soon, but if you can’t wait to hear her debut single in person, she’s headlining the Moroccan Lounge in April.
