The Origins of the Riot Grrrl Ethos

Interview with Lori: Weekend Recovery Singer and Lead Guitar


"you spend a lot of your time working and working for no response, but the payoff when it finally comes it's incredible and there's nothing like it"

Who are you and what do you do?

Lori from Weekend Recovery - singer and lead guitar

Who or what inspires you?

My parents are a huge inspiration to me I've never met two people that love each other more and more ambitious. Jess from Calva Louise is a huge inspiration to me of how to be amazing at guitar and her song writing is out of this world.

What challenges do you face?

To keep going, I know that's cliche but you spend a lot of your time working and working for no response, but the payoff when it finally comes it's incredible and there's nothing like it.

What has been the highlight of your career so far?


Getting my danelectro endorsement, for someone who's only played guitar a few years and working day in day out to be at an acceptable level that was out of this world.

What are your hopes and dreams for the future?


To be able to make a living from music and to inspire young musicians to follow something that you want even when it seems hopeless.
