about

Using a beat machine, loop pedal, bass guitar, electric guitar, and her signature voice, Denver staple Jen Korte’s alter ego, Lady Gang, accurately and astoundingly creates songs from nothing: a modern one woman setup that is not reliant on live music production software or bandmates.
Her new Ep, Simple Truths, is a departure from her celebrated Americana career and is a debut not only for Lady Gang as a song writer, but is also introducing Korte as s producer.
Having spent the past few years learning to engineer at home, Korte has taken the executive producers role on easily in this 3 song Ep. Sticking to the idea that the songs should be as accurate to the live show as possible, Lady Gang effortlessly nods to the consistency of a steady hip hop beat and melody painted in with her raw electric guitar lines throughout the production.
How Do You Sound and Preface This draw a stark comparison to Korte’s previous relationship focused lyrics. Aside from the obvious departure from folk rock, Lady Gang lyrically speaks to to her observations of the feelings of helplessness in our chaotic political world.

Lady Gang Denver, Colorado

Empowered by her electric guitar, her voice, a beat machine, and her loop pedal, LADY GANG fuses elements of hip hop and indie rock to create a sound rich with originality and skill. ... more

Track Name: How Do You Sound
Close your eyes and just keep walking, just keep walking, just keep walking
Put your hands into your pockets and keep walking, keep walking
These are the rules for my day to day in the land of the free and the home of the brave
And yes, I could see some things that I could change,
I guess I’ll start without saying your name because everybody knows some pleasures are pain and in the darkness, lies your true claim to fame
I could shatter windows with my silent screams but first, how do you sound when you speak to me?
Because how do you sound if you can’t hear nothin,
How do you sound when you speak to me (x2)

Let me be honest I can’t stay this strong for long
Consuming confrontations got my logic seemed flawed
My mind is overwhelmed when I’m up against the odds, feeling up against the wall when we are up against the law so
Bring it all together empty pockets and some change
And build a strong composure with your sadness and your rage
And put it in the middle like two dogs out of a cage ‘cause I know my strongest voice is the loudest from this stage
So How do you sound when you can’t hear nothin
How do you sound when you speak to me
How do you sound when you can’t hear nothin,
I could shatter windows with my silent screams.
Track Name: Simple Truths
She says my mind is all over the place 
I never could find a place for it anyway 
These days are filling me up with 
These days are filling me up with 
These days are filling me up with her loneliness. 

This city don't even know your name 
Years pass, people come and they go and they fade awya 
Got not time to be shoving myself out the door for you 
Got no time for any of it anymore, anymore. 

But I could never be satisfied 
Living on the other side 
Could you just be by my side 
Cause don't you know, the grass ain't always greener! 

I'm not really a mountain girl 
Somehow, I ended up here in a landlocked world 
I'd rather you sink me to the bottom 
I'd rather you sink me to the bottom 
I'd rather you sink me to the bottom 
I'd rather you sink me to the bottom
Track Name: Preface This
You’re In this world but you can’t get by
Try to escape with your hands tied
What can I do but cry for you honey?
What can I do when they just stand by?

I always knew it would come to this
Hard to resist without your fist
What can I do but cry for you honey?
What do I say to preface this? This.

I’ll just keep saying I’ll be there for you
I’ll just keep saying I’ll be there.
