If you love Brandy Clark, but haven't had the opportunity to hear her live, you are in luck. Clark announced that she is releasing a live digital album, Live From Los Angeles, on August 18th. The live recording was captured at her August 2016 show at L.A.'s Hotel Café. Rolling Stone revealed that the album features a variety of songs from Big Day In A Small Town and 12 Stories. In the same article, they describe the album by saying, “Live From Los Angeles finds the singer-songwriter at her storytelling best, whether taking on delicate ballads (“Hold My Hand") or lighthearted romps (“Stripes")."

The album was initially released on a limited edition vinyl for Record Store Day, with only 2,500 copies available. After the incredible success and positive reactions of the vinyl, Clark and her team realized it was a no-brainer to digitally release the album. Clark said in an interview with The Los Angeles Times, “A lot of times we'll record shows if we have the ability to, and the Hotel Café has the ability to… I had played there earlier, and it was such a good vibe and such a cool room that we recorded the show when we went back. It turned out better than we had hoped for. A lot of fans had been saying, 'We love your band, but we also love it when the songs are more stripped down'."
