NotableBurhenn released two solo albums before becoming one half of the acclaimed indie rock duo Georgie James. But she hasn't abandoned a solo career. During downtime from touring and recording, she has written songs for a third album, which could be released early next year.

Quotable"For me, songwriting is very much like storytelling," she said. "I can't jump ahead in the plot because I like to see where the plot is going to take me. I try not to have a preconceived notion about what a song is going to be about. They always surprise me."

Laura Burhenn performs with Jukebox the Ghost, Honor by August and Gary B. and the Notions today at The Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St. Doors open at 7 p.m. Call 410-662-0069 or go to theottobar.com. The band: myspace.com/lauraburhenn.
