One of the most extraordinary contemporary indie and pop-rock artists LP or Laura Pergolizzi will perform in the Baltics already next week – on July 2nd in Sigulda, LATVIA, on July 3rd in Vilnius, LITHUANIA and on July 4th in Tallinn, ESTONIA. Tickets are still available!
LP’s self-written massive hit Lost On You, which has almost 200 million views on YouTube, brought her a worldwide fame and making it one of today’s pop music phenomena. But she has a number of other wonderful pieces, just to name few ones, like Tokyo Sunrise, Into The Wild, Tightrope, Muddy Waters, Someday, Other People, Strange, Don’t Let Me Down, Night Like This and many more.
Born in Long Island, New York, in Italian-American family, LP showed her talent early in childhood, but as she was too shy about her powerful voice, so she sang over a noise of a vacuum cleaner. She gradually learned to play guitar, ukulele and harmonica. Now a play of ukulele and whistling, which strikingly complements the compositions, both have become LP’s signature.
But the road to fame was long enough and complicated. For a certain time she was writing songs to other famous artists (Rihanna, Cher, Christina Aguilera, Backstreet Boys, etc.) and refused to follow the suggestions of the producers and step-by-step creating her own career. Since 2001 there have been released total 4 studio albums. The latest one Lost On You with its title track swiftly brought LP a world recognition. It reached number one in 8 countries, among which there are France, Poland, Czech Republic, Greece, etc. The hit achieved even triple Platinum status in Italy.
When reviewing her recent tour, www.theupcoming.co.uk doesn’t hide its admire: “There’s no escaping her rich and textured performance as she sings about forgiveness, love and morality. Throughout the artist’s set the quality and variety she employs with her voice is impressive. She dips into different styles and facilitates them with ease. From rock, shrill falsetto, whistling, soft balladry, to lung-busting belters, LP’s exceptional voice is exhibited and uninhibited, and it’s enchanting to watch. Understandably, the crowd love her. “
At the end of the day, it’s all about being honest, taking no bullshit, and getting right back up after every fall. New York-born singer, songwriter, and all-around rock rebel LP puts it even more succinctly, “I go Johnny Cash on that shit and just get through it.”
