Lawrence Rothman on World Cafe
Lawrence Rothman
Studio Session
  • "Breathe"
  • "Decent Man"
  • "Thrash the West"
  • "The Fix"

Both are deeply personal: They explore Rothman’s gender fluidity and how a person heals after dealing with the effects of childhood trauma for decades.

The first release, Good Morning, America, features appearances from Lucinda Williams, Katie Pruitt, Mary Lattimore and Amanda Shires. The companion album, Not a Son, is a spoken-word release, building off Rothman’s work as a poet and writer. In this session, Lawrence talks about working on both albums, and shares live performances recorded for World Cafe.
