My featured guest for the 19th episode of Spirit and Roots was the ethereal Lorraine Wood, one of London’s best kept musical secrets.
We talked about her journey from busking to the big stages of London; the influence of The Velvet Underground on her music and why the recording of her debut album has been challenging.
