LAE. and writer/producer Shruti Kumar recorded LAE.'s debut EP, "Peel Away" in Joshua Tree at Gato's Trail Recording Studio. Ryan Gilligan, engineer/mixer/co-producer, took LAE. and Kumar's initial vision, the talents of brilliant musicians Brandon Walters, Whynot Jansveld, and Sarab Singh, and skillfully executed what is now LAE's 6 song EP titled Peel Away. Peel Away is the product of a rare opportunity where a willing-to-get-weird team could escape the city, hole up in the desert and make a record.
The first single "Tolerance" is released on Spotify and iTunes. It's the first song LAE and Shruti wrote together and the first part of the narrative that the whole EP tells -- one of growing up, embracing every part of yourself (even the scary parts!), reclaiming old confidence, and letting go of anything that stops you from keeping on keeping on.
