About The Artist
Clyde Lawrence, 26, and Gracie Lawrence, 22, have been writing songs and listening to countless Stevie Wonder, Randy Newman, and Aretha Franklin records in the living room of their familyé'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.In June 2019, Lawrence became the first band to sign with Beautiful Mind Records, the label of Grammy-winning producer/song-writer/artist Jon Bellion. In the weeks following the signing, they released the Bellion-produced single é"Casualty,é" and embarked as support on Bellioné's Summer 2019 Glory Sound Prep Tour.é─«The signing followed the release of Lawrenceé's sophomore album, Living Room, in September of 2018. Co-produced by bandmates Jordan Cohen and Jonny Koh, 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, and a family loss. Living Room built sonically on the band's first album, Breakfast (2016), which was produced by Grammy Award-winner Eric Krasno (Lettuce/Soulive).In addition to the band, Clyde has also amassed a considerable resume writing songs and score for films and television, while Gracie is an accomplished film, television, and theater actress.
