We close out this guest series with the incredibly talented Mary Lambert. She is not your typical triple-platinum-selling artist. She had never recorded music formally when she received a call from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis to collaborate on their marriage equality anthem, “Same Love.” Lambert has a successful solo career, stars in an animated series, co-hosts a podcast, is an author, and facilitates a virtual workshop on body image. We talk with her about her tough childhood, her relationship with faith and the church, and how all this has influenced her work as an artist and her journey to healing. She is lovely; she is relatable, and she is just so talented! Trigger warnings apply for sexual abuse and suicidality.
