Alexandra Lawn Leaves Ra Ra Riot

Cellist and vocalist Alexandra Lawn is leaving Ra Ra Riot, and she took to the band’s Tumblr to post a heartfelt note:

While this is not a ‘goodbye’, the time has come for me to leave Ra Ra Riot.

Thank you for the wonderful 6 years — so many beautiful places visited, with incredible fans & close friends made along the way. I will carry on what I have learned from each and every one of you in future endeavors, whether it be music, becoming a pilot, or the next Iron Chef.

Playing music with Rebecca, Milo, Wes, Mathieu, John, Kenny, Gabriel, and Cameron has provided some very special opportunities in my life, alongside all the talented and amazing bands that have shared the stage with us throughout. I have learned so much from all of you, and most importantly, you have have taught me to strive every day to be a better musician and songwriter.

much love,
Alexandra Lawn

  1. As a constant force to be reckoned with each year in the Female Indie Crush category at The Gummy Awards, Alexandra’s void will be sorely missed. She played a mean cello, too.

  2. Man, these guys are just falling apart.

  3. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO Alexandra, hey, if you’re reading this, I need some cello for a thing I’m doing.

  4. So, what do we think: does Ra Ra Riot have a career after this?

  5. Very disappointing to hear. Although Ra Ra Riot have overcome bigger obstacles in the past.

  6. worst new of the year ! :’(
