    As NPR writes, “siblings Clyde and Gracie Lawrence are not your typical pair.”
    Clyde Lawrence, 26, and Gracie Lawrence, 22, have been writing songs and
    listening to countless Stevie Wonder, Randy Newman, and Aretha Franklin
    records in their family’s New Yo
    rk City apartment since they were little kids. After
    years of playing together, they officially created Lawrence, an eight
    -
    piece
    soul
    -
    pop band comprised of musician friends from childhood and college. The
    band has since gained a devoted following for its h
    igh
    -
    energy, keyboard
    -
    driven
    sound, which features tight, energetic horns, explosive lead vocals, and fully
    -
    live
    arrangements.
    In June 2019, Lawrence became the first band to sign with Beautiful Mind
    Records, the label of
    Grammy
    -
    winning producer/songwrite
    r/artist Jon Bellion. In
    the weeks following the signing, they released the Bellion
    -
    produced single
    “Casualty,” and embarked as support on Bellion’s Summer 2019 Glory Sound
    Prep Tour.
    The signing followed the release of Lawrence’s sophomore album, Living
    Room.
    Upon its release
    in September of 2018, Living Room promptly reached #2 on the
    iTunes R&B/Soul chart, earned a featured placement on Spotify’s “New Music
    Friday” playlist, and led the band to its late
    -
    night television debut on NBC’s Last
    Call with Ca
    rson Daly. The album ranges from R&B/funk feel
    -
    good pop songs to
     
    soulful and cinematic ballads. Co
    -
    produced by bandmates Jordan Cohen and
    Jonny Koh, as well as Brooklyn
    -
    based producer Eli Crews and Clyde and Gracie
    themselves, Living Room chronicles the tr
    ials and tribulations of growing up,
    including break
    -
    ups, make
    -
    ups, a family loss, and the attempt to find harmony
    between excitement, anxiety, melancholy, and empowerment. Sonically, the
    album combines elements of Lawrence’s old and new influences by mixi
    ng live
    with electronic, analog with digital, and meticulousness with spontaneity.
    Lawrence first rose to prominence in 2016 when they released their debut LP
    Breakfast (2016), which received attention and praise from a variety of sources
    ranging from
    NPR’s All Things Considered to Stephen Curry’s social media.
    Produced by Grammy Award winner Eric Krasno (Lettuce/Tedeschi
    Trucks/Soulive), Breakfast includes guest performances by NYC soul/funk
    mainstays Adam Deitch (Lettuce), Cory Henry (Cory Henry & the
    Funk Apostles,
    Snarky Puppy), and Maurice “Mobetta” Brown (Anderson .Paak, Tedeschi Trucks
    Band). In the past three years, Lawrence has sold out headline shows across the
    country and appeared at festivals including Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Firefly,
    Okeech
    obee, Hangout, and many more. The band has also opened for notable
    acts such as Lake Street Dive, Vulfpeck, Jon Bellion, Soulive, Jacob Collier,
    Blues Traveler, O.A.R, Bernhoft, and others.
    In addition to the band, Clyde and Gracie have also amassed cons
    iderable
    resumes with other artistic pursuits. Clyde has written songs and score for film
    and television, including Miss Congeniality (2000), Music and Lyrics (2007), The
    Rewrite (2015), Landline (2017), and the forthcoming Disney film Noelle (2019).
    Graci

    Lohai

    Pop

    Lohai is a magnetic collaboration between Alita Moses and Devon Yesberger that blends their soulful spirits with a love for thoughtful lyrics and infectious melodies. Supported by a full band, Lohai has performed across the country and abroad to great acclaim. Their modern pop/soul sound has been compared to Emily King and Lianne La Havas, and their casual character on stage makes every performance feel intimate and personal.
