Lake Street Dive
Since 2004, these four 30-something Brooklyn music conservatory grads happily played small venues before a casually made video of them around one mic on a street corner grabbed the public’s attention and garnered millions of YouTube views. Taping with T Bone Burnett at NYC's Town Hall, rave reviews, European tours and late night TV show performances followed.
With award-winning jazz vocalist Rachael Price as their secret ingredient, Lake Street Dive’s charismatic sound is built on hot musical chops, smart lyrics and lush vocals arrangements. Their new album, Bad Self Portraits, is a microcosm of Lake Street Dive’s evolution from an odd alt-country jazz group to a pop-soul juggernaut. It’s a fresh, knowing collection of tunes that blend Motown soul, sixties pop, and British Invasion swagger.
