L.P. is an incredible artist and songwriter from New York City now living in L.A. Recently signed to Warner Brother Records, she has created a strong buzz in the LA music scene playing sold-out residencies at the Soho House and Sayers Club. With a unique and powerful voice, she has been described as a mix of Jeff Buckley, Florence and the Machine and Janis Joplin, yet has a style and sound all her... own. She is currently in the studio crafting her new album with a host of producers including Isa Summers (Florence and the Machine) and PJ Bianco (Cee-Lo) among others. In today's crowded musical landscape, LP stands out as a real artist with meaningful music. She can only truly be described through the sound of her music.
Joey Dosik - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
When asked about the people that played on the recently released EP "Where Do They Come From?", Joey describes his comrades as "top notch musicians and people." The core of the group is made up of some of Dosik's best friends and greatest collaborators. Josh Lopez (www.facebook.com/joshua.lopez.140) is a force to be reckoned with on the guitar in any group he plays in, JP Maramba (www.facebook.com/jpmaramba) provides the most solid foundation in the low frequency spectrum, and Mike G (www.facebook.com/cymbalguy) brings an immediate signature sound to all his endeavors. Together the group has created a cohesive sound that is both fresh and timeless. Some of the guest artists to grace the recording are Gabe Noel aka Janitor (www.mp3d0wnl0ad.com) playing bass on one track as well as cello on two tracks. Joey says about Janitor, "he's one of my favorite artists that I've ever met in my life." Gabe's new project Thelma and Janitor is something special to keep an eye out for. Another great addition to the EP is Miguel Atwood-Ferguson who plays a string arrangement on one of Joey's tracks. Dosik describes Miguel as "a total beacon of light in this city and definitely the most inspiring artist I have ever met in my life." His presence on the album has brought together years of a developing musical relationship as well as an everlasting friendship. Finally, not on the record itself, but a long time comrade and constant source of inspiration to Dosik is Theo Katzman (www.facebook.com/theokatzmanmusic). Joey describes Theo as his brother in arms, and says that Theo has been his greatest inspiration to get this music out. Both as a friends as well as a collaborators, Katzman and Dosik have a long and fruitful future together. With this kind of talent and support behind this incredible artist the sky is truly the limit.
