About the EP:
Le Ren is the moniker of 26-year old Montreal-based musician Lauren Spear, and Morning & Melancholia serves four tracks of heart wrenching and extremely honest folk music.
“The Day I Lose My Mind,” written by Dallas Frazier, reckons with fading memories of a loved one.
It strolls with guitar, woozy pedal steel, and Spear’s assured voice.
A meditation on mourning and memory, it was written in response to a tragic event two years ago when Spear’s ex-boyfriend was killed in a car accident, leaving her as the sole keeper of their shared memories.
