Lauren Hoffman live at the Jefferson sepia.jpeg

I have always felt like an outsider… have you?…

Some of us have better masks than others.

Sometimes, I wear a very convincing mask.

Fitting in feels like a game; showy peacock feathers, herd mentality, dominance rituals….

There is a place inside the mask, in and through that lonesome feeling, a place where I am not afraid of being The Outsider, and that’s the place where I write the song.

I show you the song because I know you are an Outsider too, behind the mask...

I’m trying to meet you there.
