Holly Lerski had to take a long, long trip before her new album, Sweet Decline, could happen. Not just the road trip she took that inspired the thing, but Lerski decamped from her home in the UK to record the album in Nashville. Sweet Decline was inspired by a breakup, and the subsequent solo road trip Lerski took through the US to heal. This is her fifth studio album and draws influences from Bob Dylan, Tori Amos, and everyone in between. In our interview, Lerski discusses the journey to Sweet Decline and the fans that have carried her along the way.
