A rising British singer/songwriter is hitting the Commodore Ballroom on November 11, and you have a chance to see her.
Lapsley is a 19-year-old electronic music artist who focused on several different genres growing up, giving her a wide depth of experience. She learned how to play the piano along with classical guitar, drums, and oboe. But she didn’t discover the beauty of electronic music until her early teens.
“What drove me to music was a fascination with this whole world that I didn’t know. It excited me. And if I hadn’t had this conservative upbringing I wouldn’t have been so drawn to it,” she says.
Her first song, Station, was composed on a cheap keyboard using Garage Band. Even after her parents told her to stop making music until after her exams, she continued composing in secret.
From those early morning songwriting sessions, Lapsley gained the inspiration for her debut album called Long Way Home. Melancholic and moody, the album documents the start of her new-found music career.
