From a press release:

Today, indie folk singer/songwriter LittleStarRun, the artist moniker for Scranton musician Rachel Lucille Woodworth, will release her first single “Wilting” on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube, Google Play, Shazam, iHeartRadio, Rhapsody, and many more digital platforms. The single was previously released in January 2016 through Bandcamp, and after such a positive response, it is now making its way to other platforms to reach a wider audience.

“Wilting” is a song richly layered in echoey vocals and lush guitars, leading the listener on a psychedelic journey through an unconscious underground. The song encapsulates an ethereal parallel universe with LittleStarRun’s poetic phrases, subtle country folk guitar blended with layers of distortion, and a modern Greek chorus of her own vocals.

Penned while on the island of Crete in Greece, the song was inspired by a dream, and the imagery and journey all take place in the world between asleep and awake. Think Joni Mitchell meets Sonic Youth and Tame Impala played out in an ancient Greek theater.

“Wilting” was co-produced and recorded in the home studio of Anthony Georgou in Athens in 2015, and her debut album is due out sometime in 2016.

Woodworth, a musician and actress, recently returned to Northeastern Pennsylvania after over 10 years in Athens, Greece. She grew up attending punk and hardcore shows on the East Coast but found her own sound through singer/songwriters of the ’60s and ’70s and the psychedelic and indie rock scenes, marrying her poetry and writing to more a delicate folk sound.

Her music can be described as ethereal indie folk or indie psych-dream pop. She can be seen performing solo or singing backing vocals and playing with NEPA indie psychedelic rock band Brian TV.
