Grammy Award-winning multi-instrumentalist and producer STEVE LACY will play highly anticipated headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne this February.
Best-known as the guitarist of progressive soul collective The Internet, Steve Lacy is a force of creative genius. He was Wired Magazine’s Tech Visionary and Time Magazine’s Most Influential Teen; has produced and written for or featured with Solange, Vampire Weekend and Blood Orange; and produced some of Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN on his iPhone.
Lacy’s solo efforts are genre-smashing gems that, according to Pitchfork, “sparkle with classic Southern California funk and soul.” His debut album Apollo XXI was released in May 2019 to massive praise, solidifying the soul visionary’s bright future. Playful hooks, sun-drenched beats, and dreamy falsetto make for a rousing, standout release.
As a member of The Internet, Lacy earned critical praise for breakout collaborative masterpiece Ego Death. Earlier this year the group performed a sold out show at the prestigious Sydney Opera House, where Lacy teased new solo material to raucous reaction.
A master guitarist with a honeyed vocal, Steve Lacy recently covered i-D’s Voice of a Generation Issue, along with Crack Magazine, GQ Korea and Document Journal, and chatted with Harry Styles for a cover feature in Man About Town. Along with this impressive list of accolades, he has modelled for Louis Vuitton and Gucci.
Entering the pantheon of urban pop greats, Steve Lacy’s debut solo Australian shows are not to be missed.
