Lavender Blue is the musical alias of dream-pop guitarist and songwriter Kayla Zuskin. Fusing electric guitar with minimalistic vocals, Zuskin’s compositions are musings on existence in a blissfully hazy and lo-fi landscape.

A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Zuskin began writing songs as a way to combine her guitar playing and creative writing. She is heavily influenced by indie-rock, folk songwriters, art, nature, film, and literature.

Lavender Blue was first launched as a project as Zuskin was busking and traveling across the United States in the fall of 2017. Upon returning to Asheville in 2018, Zuskin wrote, recorded and co-produced her self-released LP Dusk .

You can catch Lavender Blue somewhere between Asheville, NC and Valencia, ES in 2019.

“The love lost and found, is always kept lock and key, deep with a soul. Revealed in the sunlight, only for the holder to view, the icons of emotions flutter. And it flutters in “Give Me Metal or Give Me Death.” -Come Here Floyd
