As NPR writes, “siblings Clyde and Gracie Lawrence are not your typical pair.”
Clyde Lawrence and Gracie Lawrence have been writing songs and listening to
countless Stevie Wonder, Randy Newman, and Aretha Franklin records in their
family’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. The band has since
gained a devoted following for its high-energy, keyboard-driven sound, which
features tight, energetic horns, explosive lead vocals, and fully-live
arrangements.

In June 2019, Lawrence became the first band to sign with Beautiful Mind
Records, the label of Grammy-winning producer/songwriter/artist Jon Bellion, and
within a few months embarked as support on Bellion’s Summer 2019 Glory
Sound Prep Tour. Lawrence has since released the Bellion-produced singles
“Casualty” (performed live on NBC’s Today Show), “It’s Not All About You,” “The
Weather,” “Freckles,” and “Don’t Lose Sight,” which have garnered tens of

millions of streams across all platforms and have had multiple viral moments on
Tik Tok and Instagram. The singles are a part of the band’s new album, Hotel
TV, which is out now and will be performed on their 2021 Fall headline tour.

The signing to Beautiful Mind followed the release of Lawrence’s sophomore
album, Living Room. Upon its release in September of 2018, Living Room
promptly reached #2 on the iTunes R&B/Soul chart, earned a featured placement
on Spotify’s “New Music Friday” playlist, and led the band to its late-night
television debut on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly. Co-produced by
bandmates Jordan Cohen and Jonny Koh, as well as 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, a family loss, and
the attempt to find harmony between excitement, anxiety, melancholy, and
empowerment.

Lawrence first rose to prominence in 2016 when they released their debut LP
Breakfast (2016), which received attention and praise from a variety of sources
ranging from NPR’s All Things Considered to Stephen Curry’s social media.
Produced by Grammy Award winner Eric Krasno (Lettuce/Tedeschi
Trucks/Soulive), Breakfast includes guest performances by NYC soul/funk
mainstays Adam Deitch (Lettuce), Cory Henry (Cory Henry & the Funk Apostles,
Snarky Puppy), and Maurice “Mobetta” Brown (Anderson .Paak, Tedeschi Trucks
Band).

Lawrence has sold out headline shows across the country and appeared at
festivals including Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Firefly, Okeechobee, Hangout, and
many more. The band has also opened for notable acts such as Lake Street
Dive, Vulfpeck, Jon Bellion, Soulive, Jacob Collier, Blues Traveler, O.A.R,
Bernhoft, and others.

In addition to the band, Clyde and Gracie have also amassed considerable
resumes with other artistic pursuits. Clyde has written songs and score for film
and television, including Disney’s Noelle (2019), Steven Spielberg’s Animaniacs
(2020), Landline (2017), The Rewrite (2015), Music and Lyrics (2007), and even
Miss Congeniality (2000), for which he wrote the theme song at age five. Gracie
is an accomplished actress, appearing as a series regular alongside John Caroll
Lynch, Leslie Odom Jr., and Sturgill Simpson in the CBS All-Access murder
mystery One Dollar. Gracie has also appeared on Broadway in Brighton Beach
Memoirs (2009), in films such as The Sitter (2011) and Did You Hear About the
Morgans? (2009), and in tv shows including The Good Wife (2012), The
Americans (2014), and Younger (2015).
