Rachael Price and Bridget Kearney (Lake Street Dive)


In this episode of Salute the Songbird, Maggie is joined by Lake Street Dive artists Rachael Price and Bridget Kearney. The pair share the story of how they met and formed the band, the things that make them work so well together, and what they love about being women in the music industry.


As a band, Lake Street Dive epitomizes democracy in action: the group, expanded into a quintet since touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss officially joined in 2017, share writing and arrangement duties. Their personalities, skills, and wide-ranging taste in pop, rock, R&B, and jazz have long blended together to make an impressively cohesive sound, both sophisticated and playful, combining retro influences with contemporary attitude. On its most recent Nonesuch album, 2018’s Free Yourself Up, the band even produced the record itself.
