Ahead of their upcoming release On Paper, indie artist Ramona Cordova will perform at LAVA Space. The venue is the perfect compliment for Ramona’s music and values, both working to create spaces that are inclusive and diverse and respectful through performance. Each of Ramona’s three records thus far have moved in different directions that reflect their growth and transformations over the past ten years: the boy who floated freely tells a story, taking the listener on a journey, quinn to new relationships is more expansive musically and abstract lyrically. Ramona tells The Key in a recent interview that the newest record, set for a July 4th release, is “inspired by the struggle I felt transitioning back to the United States from France: re-arising trauma, feelings of state and social oppression, hopelessness, longing to be back in a place where i just felt free.” Ramona will perform with Pinkwash, Gland, and Jenny Jones World.
