Born Yesterday, New York singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy’s new EP, is a bookend to her lauded 2016 debut LP, Emotions and Math (ATO Records). Emotions and Math was featured on many year-end lists from prominent publications when it was released in 2016, including the New York Times, NPR Music, Billboard, Mother Jones, and more. Glaspy toured the record intensely, playing countless shows throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.

This season on the road birthed Born Yesterday. Glaspy recalls, “I wrote these songs on the road, in my hotel, on the plane, and at soundcheck. They were the product of the little time that I had to myself—three songs about different sides of love: love gone wrong, love gone right, and love at a distance.”

Glaspy self-produced the new EP, which frames these love stories in catchy choruses, dark harmony, and her ever-evolving sense of the electric guitar. Her finely tuned ear for production and tone shine on Born Yesterday

Hannah Siglin is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from the Pacific Northwest. She began studying roots and folk music and performing at local festivals in Spokane, Washington, and is now an active performer in Boston, Massachusetts, where she studies at Berklee College of Music. Siglin hopes that her combination of classical training and deep love for folk music will help her create music that is multifaceted and technical, but still relatable and familiar.
