Lula Wiles: “Shaking As It Turns”

Posted by on Jan 24, 2019

Only a couple years since their self-titled debut, Berklee-educated Boston trio Lula Wiles has kept busy entertaining crowds worldwide and sharing stages with acts like Aoife O’Donovan and The Wood Brothers. On their upcoming album What Will We Do, Lula Wiles challenges the deep-seated norms of folk music while still using its genre structures to facilitate a dozen new, societally-conscious tunes. As such, protest and contradiction is a central theme of What Will We Do, and sonically the record captures the ambiance of an intimate living room performance with charming imperfections and edges left just rough enough.

What Will We Do is out tomorrow, and right now you can start exploring Lula Wiles with a traditional-inspired song, written after the 2017 death of a demonstrator in Charlottesville, “Shaking As It Turns”!
