Lacy James

A mixture of the dreamlike and the everyday, Lacy James’ eclectic musical style draws from various influences ranging from rock and pop to world music, folk, jazz, and electronic/ambient. Her well-received debut album Lovefeast, produced with Jim Gallagher at Philadelphia International and Kajem/Victory studios, drew comparisons with the work of Kate Bush, Talking Heads, Tori Amos, Siouxsie & the Banshees and other innovative artists of the time. After the release of Lovefeast Lacy set out on a dance journey that took her to New York City and beyond. In the wake of those experiences she has returned to recording with her second full-length release Circles of Swallows, released on February 12, 2013. The new record has been shaped by Lacy's collaboration with producer Jeff Hiatt at noted Philadelphia workshop Turtle Studios. “Osmosis Song” was released on September 4, 2012 as the first single, to be followed by a second single “Old Languages” on November 20, 2012. Lacy is also a choreographer whose dance company, Mereminne Dancers, has performed throughout NYC as well as in Philadelphia, North Carolina and Germany. [+]
