Today, up-and-coming young soul-funk family affair Lawrence announced a surprise FREE show, set to take place this Wednesday, November 29th, 2017. The concert will be held at new Lower Manhattan lounge/venue Mailroom, which opened this summer in the basement of the Wall Street high-rise that houses communal work- and living-space companies WeWork and WeLive.
Before Lawrence takes the stage on Wednesday, a brand new project will open the evening’s festivities. As the band explained in the official show announcement, “the night will open with the first ever live performance from Hi-Lo Jack, our collaborative side project with our friends Stolen Jars and DAP The Contract.” Admission to the event will be granted via RSVP. To RSVP for Wednesday’s show, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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) and Gracie Lawrence (vocals) has been rapidly gaining steam since the release of their fantastic debut album Breakfast (2016), 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.
We became enchanted by Clyde, Gracie, and company at Bonnaroo 2016, when their bubbly performance inspired frequent Vulfpeck–collaborating singer Antwaun Stanley to hop onto stage and join them for an unplanned vocal jam. Lawrence has continued to pick up momentum since then, earning a record deal with Warner Bros. records and selling out countless shows as they tour behind Breakfast and as supporting artists for proven favorites like Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Jacob Collier, Vulfpeck, and Eric Krasno Band.
