Some artists can write a hooky melody that sticks in your head and makes you sing along. Some can create innovative, distinctive songs that stand out from the crowd. Others can pen clever, thoughtful lyrics that work on multiple levels. Still others have the technological skills to manifest all those ideas in the studio by producing their own work. And every now and them, along comes someone like Sarah Tudzin who does it all.
The Illuminati Hotties singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and engineer is one of the most talented artists I’ve come across lately, and her third album Let Me Do One More is one of the standout releases of 2021 — especially coming in the wake of personal and professional hardships that included the death of a close family member and the collapse of her former record label. If you’ve already heard the album, you know what I’m talking about. Now, listen in as the L.A. resident and rising star talks to me about the creation of the album, her songwriting process and plenty more.
