Lu'ami // Warriors EP Launch // Support from Bessi + Alyss
Back in the Woods Promotions are delighted to be hosting the launch show for Lu'Ami's fantastic new EP Warriors. With Support from Bessi and Alyss. After party till late with tunes and vibes from DJ Riphco.
Testing the boundaries of uniqueness, Lu’Ami mixes live vocalised loops with electronically produced sounds to create a bed of Icelandic pop, neo soul, electronica and jazz, overlaid with catchy pop melodies.
Able to silence a room with rich soulful tones, she has often been compared to artists such as Erykah Badu and Björk.
Lu’Ami’s second E.P. ‘Warriors’ has again been successfully funded by fans using Crowdfunding and is due for release March 2019. An exploration of self-empowerment, the making of this E.P. inspired ‘The Self-Empowerment Stories’, where Lu’Ami invited fans on social media to share honest and authentic personal experiences of empowered breakthroughs. The series demonstrated that this feeling, no matter how big or small, can be found in every day life and is attainable for everyone.
Lu’Ami is a continuously evolving artist that puts pure spirit, feeling and honesty at the helm of her work. Her influences and experiences are bound together in a way that is recognisable on both a musical and human level, yet somehow indefinable.
“A raw talent using a sample pad in such a way it’s clear she has an astute musical intelligence. Sounding like a mix of old school jazz vocals, Prince and Bjork without sounding like a fax machine...an incredible performance” – Festivals for All
Singer, songwriter and producer Alyss is known for her highly distinct sound, infusing tribal, electronic and soul together with powerful, expressive vocals. Native from the suburbs of North London, she was classically trained on the piano and violin by her Father from a young age, soon rebelling as a teenager to create her own music.
From piano ballads to glitchy house music, Alyss’ style continues to evolve with zero boundaries, blending an expansive range of influences across multiple genres.
Having previously supported Sampha at The Jazz Cafe in London, performed at Pitchfork Paris and The Great Escape, Alyss has released 3 EPs all of which received extensive support from major radio stations and tastemakers across the world, charting #1 on BBC1Xtra’s Top 5 EPs and Annie Mac’s “Hottest Record” on BBC Radio 1.
Energizing crowds with hypnotic live performances, Alyss’ unique presence both on and off stage is an undeniable force, continuing her story through 2019 with a trilogy of EPs set for release this summer.
