Singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy performed at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and hit the stage in Teva’s DIY Lounge at The Grind for a stripped-down set. Afterwards, she sat down with Rolling Stone, telling host Michelle Marie all about her experience at “The Roo.”
“It was really fun,” said Glaspy, “It’s kind of a different vibe over here. It felt like kind of a sanctuary. I give it my all no matter where I play, but there was something kind of special about this one.”
The versatile, New York-based artist is poised to release her highly anticipated debut album, Emotions and Math, on June 17. Glaspy opened up to Marie about the creative process, breaking down the various stages it took for her to finally release a record she was proud of.
“It feels like it took 27 years to make. The first couple run-throughs of recording a record were on an iPad,” she said. “The second pass I got the proper recording equipment and made it in my apartment again. Then, ATO Records got in touch and asked me to make a record, so I made it a third time. I just feel lucky to have gotten that much time to make the record and do it exactly the way I wanted to.“
Bonnaroo was the kick-off debut to Margaret Glaspy’s headlining tour across the US and Europe. For more information, visit margaretglaspy.com.
