Starting soft an atmospheric but picking up pace with a minor turnaround with a well placed dominant five chord is Laura Jean Anderson “Call It What It Is”. The tones used in the production are comparable to iconic pop acts like Amy Winehouse or Lana Del Ray who both favor the minor turnaround with the dominant five harmonic minor turnaround. The song contains many subtle hooks and layers for the listener to enjoy. The producer didn’t hold back with automating echos and reverbs during the bridge and clever use of panning to take the listener in and out of the center of their headphones. The bass noticeably picks up at the end starts playing some catchy groovy hooks and definitely should not be overlooked. Though the primary focus of Laura Jean Andersons “Call It What It Is” the overall production is a well calculated and thought out pop production that will excite any music production junky. Really looking forward to what comes next from Laura Jean Anderson. Please see song and attached artist biography below!
“Born one of five kids in Olympia, Washington where grunge was king and liberal hippies thrived, Laura Jean was raised strictly Mormon. By her mid-teens, she rebelled — music was her first outlet.
First honing her vocal skill in church choirs through childhood, a bronchitis-riden audition led to a chance acceptance to California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) and Laura Jean moved to California to study classical voice.
Through the years, she’s made her way working odd jobs, busking, living in an artist compound, and playing live in any capacity. She’s also done various forms of farm work in South America as well as berry farming in Washington state.”
