The Italian-American singer and songwriter Laura Pergolizzi, aka LP, masters several disciplines. She’s written commercial pop bangers for superstars like Christina Aguilera, Cher, Rihanna, and Celine Dion, but also has great success with her own indie rock and pop which currently earns her a daily 2.4 million views on YouTube.
LP already started releasing her own music in 2014, but in 2016 she hit a milestone with her second record Lost on You, from which the title track went number one in 18 countries.
Now, she’s amassed over than two billion streams. In fact, her songs are being streamed upwards of two million times a day around the world. That’s thanks to the raw rock sound and sublime pop-songwriting she’s creating, where equal parts vulnerability and cool swagger is a musical match made in heaven.
In 2021, LP released the album Churches on which The Independent wrote “New album is LP at their best: cursing and worshipping at love’s altar” in their five-star review. When LP visited Forum Black Box in Copenhagen back in September, national music media GAFFA called her a “powerhouse of good energy and attitude on stage.”
LP is not just a brilliant singer and songwriter, but an actual icon – so you better not miss out.
LP will play Thursday 1 June at NorthSide 2023.
