Pop/rock singer/songwriter LP’s passion for music began in New York, where she was born. With music as a constant presence and pursuit as she grew up, she drew inspiration from a range of artists, citing the voices, the wordplay, and the swagger as what stood out for her. After moving to New York, David Lowery of the band Cracker saw her performing and featured her on “My Cinderella”, a hidden track on the band’s 1998 album.
Like many before her, LP has been down the major-label road, having previously signed deals that did not fit, leading her to believe that an artist’s career may not be in the cards. During those years, LP fell into writing for other artists, penning such hits as Rihanna’s “Cheers (Drink to That)” and Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful People.” However, the artist world came calling again in late 2011 after LP began drawing crowds to what she describes as “fun, low-key” appearances at local L.A. clubs. Since then, she has taken back the spotlight and released an EP and then an album, produced by the Grammy Award-winning Rob Cavallo. She has been featured and praised by Vogue, Rolling Stone, The Los Angeles Times, CNN, USA Today, Billboard, and many others, and has even had famed instrument maker Martin tap LP as a future force to be reckoned with, honoring her as both its first female Ambassador and first ever to be associated with ukulele.
