After three and a half years of sweat, pain, tears and love – and even a little bit of blood – Colorado singer/songwriter Lara Ruggles is releasing her debut full-length album, Cynics & Saints, on Immersive Records. Proof that good things come to those who wait, Cynics & Saints’ powerful vocals, lyrics as metaphorical as they are personal, and guitar-and-piano driven melodies take the listener on a journey that looks fearlessly into what it means to be willing to be broken; a reflection of the album’s creation. Lara Ruggles is well known among audiophiles. Her song "Snowflake" in DSD format was one of only 4 High Resolution tracks chosen to be pre-installed on every Sony Hi-Res Walkman sold around the world. The track was also featured on a sampler for Sony AR-1 speakers and will soon be included on a sampler by PS Audio!
