If you’re not up on Lawrence yet, it’s time to get familiar. The upstart eight-piece soul-pop led by the young brother/sister duo of Clyde Lawrence (keys, vocals, age 23) and Gracie Lawrence (vocals, age 20) has been rapidly gaining steam over the last year, when they released their fantastic debut album Breakfast, produced by renowned guitarist and Grammy-winning producer Eric Krasno and featuring guest spots by Adam Deitch (Lettuce), Cory Henry (Snarky Puppy), Maurice “Mobetta” Brown, and more. The New York-based soul group blends old-school and new-school vibes, combining their love of The Beatles, Randy Newman, and Etta James to create songs that are as tender and soulful as they are explosive.
This week, Lawrence released the latest selection from their recent appearance on live video series The Blues Kitchen Sessions: a stripped-down performance of Breakfast track “You & Me.” Check it out below via Blues Kitchen TV on YouTube:
And if that got you curious, you can check out the previously released video from the band’s Blues Kitchen Session, a bluesy jaunt through “Friend or Enemy”:
Lawrence will be in Northern California this saturday, August 12th, for a performance at Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival. From there, they will spend the remainder of the week on the road with Lake Street Dive, making stops in Columbia, MO (August 14th), Dallas, TX (August 16th), Fayetteville, AR (August 17th) and Oklahoma City, OK (August 18th). Following their run with Lake Street Dive, the band will have a few weeks off before heading to KAABOO Del Mar on September 14th.
