The Chicago-bred band, now Angelenos, first came to prominence with their single “Get Over It” and the band’s accompanying, self-titled album in 2002.

Now she’s finally released her debut LP, the upbeat, charming Forever For Now, produced by GRAMMY-winning producer and Warner Bros. Records chairman Rob Cavallo.
