ladyybirdd is an eponymous debut album featuring original music (by flutist Gina Izzo) for flute through washed-out reverbs, analog synthesizers, and FX. 


Lucid dreaming, mirrored reflections, and disrupted breathing connect intimately to the album narrative’s personal response to loss. In the studio, the flute streams through a series of analog guitar pedals that alter the sound of the flute through FX, creating a sense of urgency, calm, and resistance to moving forward.

In collaboration with producer and engineer Joseph Branciforte, the album features artists including:

ladyybirdd's music video, "into what is wanted," a precursor to the debut album, was recently recorded at the Berklee Power Station in New York City and will release on October 20, 2021. 


The album is set to release in 2022.
