“I ain’t a child of your God,” Laura Jean Anderson declares on her new single, “Silence Won’t Help Me Now.” Inspired in part by the election of Trump, the song is a bold statement of affirmation and feminist defiance by the local singer, who was raised as a devout Mormon in Olympia, Washington. As powerful as Anderson’s lyrics are, the song takes on even greater emotional heft through her soaring, unrestrained vocals. In her early days as a vocalist in L.A., Anderson belted out her original songs as an avenging country-rock angel who never came across as a meek sweetheart of the rodeo. More recently, however, on such captivating romantic ballads as “Love You Most,” her stylistic range encompasses indie rock and raw, unadulterated soul. This evening, Anderson croons a free set when she opens for Gospelbeach.
