Kristen Lawrence is a very interesting Linescratchers interviewee. Not only is she an accomplished organist and composer, her spooky, complex yet accessible music is centered around Halloween. With October fast approaching, Kristen’s interview kicks off the music of the season perfectly. The air seems crisper after reading it. She splits her time between Salt Lake City and Southern California, and lists what is, for this interviewer, a wonderfully diverse web of influences. Kristen talks about growing up in a musical family, her ideas about the pathos of music itself, the Halloween season, and Danny Elfman. For a sampling of her music, check out www.kristenlawrence.com and look up “Ghost of John,” a swirling musical journey fit for headphones or a reverberating cathedral.

Roxy Rawson’s music will strike you immediately as music like you’ve never heard before (in a good way). Her songs are delightfully eccentric, with jumping melody lines, colorful lyrics, and unorthodox rhythms. These kinds of musical isolates are rare these days. Try the song “Riddle It” on for size. Roxy agreed to be interviewed for Linescratchers and now adds an amazing amount of color to the blog.
