As NPR writes, “siblings Clyde and Gracie Lawrence are not your typical pair.”
Clyde Lawrence and Gracie Lawrence have been writing songs and listening to
countless Stevie Wonder, Randy Newman, and Aretha Franklin records in their
family’s New York 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 high-energy, keyboard-driven sound, which
features tight, energetic horns, explosive lead vocals, and fully-live
In June 2019, Lawrence became the first band to sign with Beautiful Mind
Records, the label of Grammy-winning producer/songwriter/artist Jon Bellion, and
within a few months embarked as support on Bellion’s Summer 2019 Glory
Sound Prep Tour. Lawrence has since released the Bellion-produced singles
“Casualty,” “It’s Not All About You,” “The Weather,” and “Freckles” and has a new
album coming out Summer 2021 with a headline tour to follow.
The signing to Beautiful Mind 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 Carson 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 trials
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 mixing live with electronic, analog with digital, and
meticulousness with spontaneity.
