On September 3, 2014, the GRAMMY Museum welcomed singer-songwriter LP for a conversation and performance. LP, debuted her first major label record, Forever For Now, following her 2012 EP Live at EastWest Studios. Both the EP and the full length, each produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer Rob Cavallo, showcase the power and prowess she’s earned as a performer from earlier times barnstorming the country — “250 shows a year, driving around the country in a tiny van.” That’s the standard she and Cavallo took to the studio. Anyone who’s ever seen LP live, or watched the much-viewed viral videos of her effervescent performances on which she accompanies herself on rocking ukulele, knows that powerful is a perfect description of her. Her vocal abilities and live performances are what brought her a place on Esquire’s rising-stars roster, led Vogue to gush about her “penetrating voice” and “swagger,” and what has unleashed a wave of glowing praise from Rolling Stone, The Los Angeles Times, CNN, USA Today, Billboard and many others.
