And now Potter will have the chance to rock out with other great female artists as she and the band will hop on Lilith Fair for a run of dates this summer. "When I first heard that we'd been ask to play Lilith Fair, I was excited to hear that it was still happening," Potter tells Spinner. "I thought it went the way of the baby doll dress and scrunchy socks. I'm happy to see that the festival has been reinvigorated, spreading out the stylistic boundaries and diversity of artists."
Potter and the Nocturnals will have more to celebrate than just Lilith Fair's triumphant return this summer. On June 8, they'll drop their new self-titled album, produced by Mark Batson (Dave Matthews Band) and they'll embark on their own headlining tour. With all this on their plate, the Nocturnals have expanded to a five-piece and will now feature Catherine Popper (Ryan Adams & the Cardinals, Hem) on bass.
And although Potter will continue to hit the festival circuit this summer, Lilith Fair will certainly be something different, with unique opportunities for the band. "I look forward to sharing the stage with such a wide array of musicians," says Potter. "Plus, with all the women around, maybe I can get my band laid."
