Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign Release New Single Feat. Missing Persons Legend Dale Bozzio

“Somewhere There Forever” ft. Dale Bozzio by Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign

Dale Bozzio, legendary lead singer of Missing Persons, makes a special guest appearance and joins Mindy Milburn on vocals to record Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign’s newest single, “Somewhere There Forever.” This is a quirky, eclectic song about a person who doesn’t want to let go of someone they love and miss very much, but that person is now only in their memories.

“Walking down a graveyard path near here, 
Drinking in the moonshine chasing fears,
You are calling so loquacious, You are falling so impatient
Then I realize you have disappeared”

Along with Dale Bozzio, Mindy Milburn & Laura Espinoza, “Somewhere There Forever” also features some of LA’s most talented musicians including Geoff Pearlman (Echo in the Canyon Band); Michael Bluestein (Foreigner); Matt Denis; Noel Jasso, Miranda Miller & Julian Tomarin.

“’Somewhere There Forever’ takes me back to the ’90s with No Doubt’s ‘Tragic Kingdom’ and ‘Letters to Cleo.’ This is the sound that I had hoped those bands would continue with on the radio, but that never happened. You continue to create music we wish we heard on popular radio. Great job.” – Warren Kurtz, Goldmine Music Magazine

“Somewhere There Forever” will be released world-wide on October 1, 2019 on all major music platforms including: iTunes, Apple Music, and Spotify.

This is the second single released this year by Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign. Their song “Follow Me to the Sun” was released in April, 2019. Both will be combined into the bands upcoming third album slated for release in mid 2020. Both songs written by Laura Espinoza.

The band features Laura Espinoza – guitar; Mindy Milburn -lead vocals; Matt Denis -bass & Noel Jasso – Drums and will be performing in the fall on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood.

“Somewhere There Forever”

Music & Lyrics by: Laura Espinoza

Walking down a graveyard path near here
Drinking in the moonshine chasing fears
You are calling so loquacious
You are falling so impatient
Then I realize you have disappeared

Is this really a life without you?
An hourglass without sand

When I met you I never ever
Thought I’d see you there
Lying somewhere there forever.

Driving down the coast without a care
Speculating you are sitting there
Music blaring, people staring
Moonlight glitters, thrills we’re sharing
Then I realize you aren’t really here

Am I really just holding onto
Dreams without you here
Venerating, just speculating
You are waiting there
Waiting somewhere there forever.

This is just how I feel
This is why life always matters
This is just how I deal
When it’s time for the ever-after

Is this really a life without you?
An hourglass without sand
When I met you I never ever
Thought I’d see you there
Lying somewhere there forever

Walking down a graveyard path near here
Drinking in the moonshine chasing fears
You are calling so loquacious
You are falling so impatient 
Then I realize you have disappeared
Then I realize you have disappeared
Then I realize you aren’t really here

“American Stranger the Musical” recently received the “Hollywood Fringe Festival ENCORE! Award” as well as the “Better Lemons ‘Sweet’ Audience Review Award.” The musical is based on the music by Laura Espinoza; “American Stranger” is the story of three siblings, two of whom are learning to understand the third who is transitioning from their brother to their sister, now known as Mary. Rejection and intolerance plagues Mary – from society and from her parents who have disowned her. However, it is the loss of her beloved girlfriend, Dionne, that haunts her the most. America’s growing cultural divide has made Mary a stranger in her own country. “American Stranger” features the acoustic versions of the songs of Laura Espinoza & London Reign.

Here’s what the audience is saying:

“The music and singing were outstanding. Wonderful show, talented performers and great music. It’s so many people’s story, in many different ways. We are all just fumbling around, looking for love, looking for family. Trying to follow our hearts and survive.” – Lauren Peterson

“I own the record ‘American Stranger” by the band Laura Espinoza & Lunden Reign and I really dig it.
I was very impressed with how Laura Espinoza, the song writer and guitarist of ‘American Stranger,’ brought her album to life with this beautiful musical.” – Michael Dinapoli

“What a beautiful gift this musical is! The writer had to know what a powerful message this would be, much needed yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Go see it and feel the love, confusion of being new in LA, and the message being sung beautifully by Delia Rawdon, Mindy Milburn, Miranda Miller with a great cast including Jacklyn Robinson, Scooby Ducati, Bill Melrose, and Sabrina Richmond. The writer, composer and guitarist Laura Espinoza has presented a musical that you cannot forget, ever!” –  Lisa Furuto
