Voices In My Head (The Rick Lee James Podcast) Episode 460 - Spencer LaJoye - Plowshare Prayer
Spencer LaJoye is a folk/pop singer songwriter, violinist, and vocal loop artist in Boston, MA, who believes everyone is made of the good stuff. They make music to remember what it means to be human, to find connection in a time of disconnection, and to feel something in a world gone numb. Spencer’s first EP “We’ve Been That Way Before” won the WYCE Jammie Award for Listener’s Choice in Grand Rapids, MI, and most recently, Spencer was chosen as a winner of the 2021 Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition. Last fall, Spencer released their new four-track EP, "Remember The Oxygen," written before, during, and following their coming out as trans/gender non-binary. Their newest single, "Plowshare Prayer," went viral among hurting and healing people around the world before the studio recording was released on February 18th. It poses an answer to the question: what would a prayer sound like if used as a plowshare instead of a sword?
