But You Won’t Break Me

By: Laurie Gallardo

Add this to your International Women’s Day soundtrack ASAP. Actually, add it to any soundtrack that reminds you that you’re a badass. Austin-based R&B dynamo Alesia Lani clarifies the situation with “Breaking Me Down,” a rock ‘n’ soul firebomb releasing the exasperation from going round in circles. Our protagonist is done with the cut-downs, the insecurity and all the bull. And on the latest single, Lani joins forces with forces with renown guitarist/songwriter Jackie Venson for extra shreds and volume, more fire to the fierceness. Spoiler alert: Lani will not be broken.

Join Alesia Lani for her residency performance tonight, Wednesday March 8, at Long Play Lounge East on E. Cesar Chavez. The music starts at 9 p.m.
