Laura Pergolizzi, better known by her initials LP, released Heart to Mouth, her fifth studio album, a few months ago via BMG. She’s performing in a sold-out show at the Lincoln Theatre on Feb. 19, but you can see a second show by LP at 9:30 Club on Wednesday, Feb. 20.
“When I get on the mic and start doing melodies, I can feel that direct line from my heart to my mouth. In the past, there was a city full of streets that needed my attention. Now, I feel like I have a major highway to communicate emotion from. Whether they’re sadder songs or big anthems, they all come from the same place,” LP said in a statement.

In a review of the new album, the Associated Press said “LP is really that good.”
“Over the course of a dozen new songs, the diminutive singer works in enough different styles to draw comparisons to some of the world’s greats — and yet she doesn’t sound quite like any of them,” the AP said. The review added, “Heart to Mouth succeeds because she sings with such uncloaked passion and urgency. Her big voice conveys the same don’t-care-what-you-think confidence as the album’s cover photo.”
