It’s been a while since we checked in with La Guerre, but it was worth the wait.

Watching La Guerre is like watching a butterfly emerge from a cocoon. It’s wonderful seeing how an artist like this matures, both personally and musically. The full band she’s assembled to accompany her soothing synth skills is top notch, and she even brought along a brand new drummer for their Bottleneck show Saturday night.

 
 
Along with this new sense of maturity, there’s something awfully comforting about Katlyn Conroy’s lyrics and the way she executes them. It’s like a mother patting you on the back at the end of a long day while you cry into a pillow about a boy. Somehow, mother knows best… most likely because honey, she has BEEN there.

Conroy’s perfect pitch is still an exquisite sight to behold, as was evidenced by the flock of fans who scuttled up to her after the set to compliment her singing. Conroy is also one of the few musicians capable of carrying out perfectly executed a cappella bits in her songs.

You can watch a video below of her performance.
