Introduce yourself!

I am Katy Goodman from La Sera!  I live in LA, have a dog and a cat, and love coffee.

Where did the name La Sera originate from?

I came up with it while I was on tour with Vivian Girls in Italy.  It means “the evening” in Italian.

How would you describe your music in La Sera versus in Vivian Girls?

I would say the main difference is that I am the lead singer/songwriter of La Sera, so these are more “my” songs.

What are you coming out with next?

We just put out a new record in May, Hour of the Dawn, and we spent a lot of time on it!  But we are going to start working on a new album at some point this year…
