Alex Lahey shares new song, tour dates, including Boston, MA stop
Today, Melbourne-based songwriter Alex Lahey shares the new single, “Am I Doing It Right?” from her forthcoming album, The Best of Luck Club out May 17th via Dead Oceans and announces her first set of North American tour dates in support of the album. Following the album’s first single, “Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself,” “Am I Doing It Right?” brings Lahey’s knack for writing super catchy melodies with relatable lyrics to the forefront.
“Being a musician is considered a weird job without any explanation necessary, but one of the strangest parts about being a musician is that there is absolutely no set pathway you’re supposed to follow to get where you want to go,” says Lahey. “This song reflects on being thrust into a lifestyle and going with it while feeling like others are looking over your shoulder to make sure you’re doing all the right things by you and everyone else. It’s like fighting a losing battle while loving every minute of it.”
Kicking off with a performance at Outside Lands in August, Lahey will hit the road for her first run of North American tour dates in support of The Best of Luck Club. The tour will take Lahey here to New England in the form of an August 25th date at Great Scott in Boston, MA. A full list of dates is below, with tickets on sale this Friday at 10am local time.
