Brooklyn songstress Lawanda Michelle returns from hiatus poised to take fans on a beautifully crafted sonic journey with her sophomore project, Crossroads. Written from a place of honesty and vulnerability, she’s giving her fans a soul stirring tour of her reality, put to rhythms both vibrant and sublime.
Since touching down in the world of R&B in 2010, and setting ears abuzz, with her debut album,
Puzzle, her focus has been on building on the momentum and converting listeners to fans with
performances across the country. From the world renowned Apollo Theater in Harlem, NYC to
SXSW in Austin, TX, Lawanda Michelle has been carving out her niche as a bright light and a
fresh groove for the people.
Born in Texas and raised in Atlanta until 7 years old, Brooklyn is home to this talented
singer/songwriter, the foundation for much of her growth as an artist and where the passion for music first sparked. That passion can be heard, as well as felt when she seamlessly weaves
together the influences of various genres, from Reggae to Opera to Rock, with her own unique
blending of Soul, Hip Hop, and R&B elements. The end result of that formula for creativity is
Lawanda Michelle, standing out from the rest as a true artist and vocalist of her generation.
Holding a B.A. in Music Business from the City University of New York’s prestigious Baruch
means an understanding of hard work and dedication. As such, fans can download Crossroads
EP on itunes, catch one of her upcoming shows in support of the EP, but also stay tuned!
Lawanda is already back in the studio, writing and recording for her next project slated for
release by Fall of 2014.
Lawanda Michelle is a gift to the world of music, a refreshing blast of Hip Hop and R&B with an injection of soul for your soul.
