BLIND PIANO DRIVEN ALT ROCK BAND LEAD BY SINGER/SONGWRITER LACHI TAKES NYC BY STORM
EMI TO NATIONALLY RELEASE LACHI'S SELF-TITLED ALBUM JULY 27 '10
New York City-based piano-driven, alternative-rock band lead by singer-songwriter Lachi has garnered widespread attention, performing throughout the Northeast. On July 27 2010 EMI will nationally release Lachi's debut self-titled album, which captures the West African-born songstress’s knack for blending hauntingly honest and personal lyrics with breezy, appealing melodies. On July 22, Lachi will hold a release party at the renowned NYC venue, Joe's Pub.
Legally blind and supported by blind band members, Lachi’s sociopolitical and poignant lyrics are often inspired by the stigmas of her visual impairment. Radio Indy says her vocal and lyrical depth "captures what was once a great time for music.” With performances deemed "consistently good" by Computer Music Magazine, "gorgeous" and "catchy" by CMJ, and "standout" by NYU's Washington Square News, Lachi brings the art back into songwriting and the vigor into performing. Through their devotion to music and their hard work and ethics despite all adversities, they have and continue to inspire.
