Rising NYC-based band Lawrence’s video for their new song, “Make A Move,” debuts today—watch/share it HERE. The track appears on their highly anticipated album, Living Room, out September 14. Pre-order the record HERE.
Of the video, lead singer/songwriter Gracie Lawrence says, “As a twenty-one year old girl, I’m told that being forward isn’t attractive. I’m told that if I casually ask a guy out, I’m being aggressive or boy-crazy.  But I’m sick of being told that I have to wait around to be ‘chosen.’ Am I supposed to post a picture on instagram that he probably will never see? Include a cryptic message for him in the caption that he’ll probably never get? Doesn’t THAT seem way more aggressive and boy-crazy!?  So, I decided to get over my fear of being seen as overbearing.  Because being passive is somehow both boring and time-consuming.  And because I’d rather be honest about what I want than disappointed because I never even tried.  Writing this song and making this video are reminders to myself and any other womxn who need it that if we want to ‘make a move,’ romantically or otherwise, we’re allowed.”
Ahead of release, the band will sing the national anthem at the New York Mets’ baseball game on Sunday, September 9 as well as perform three sold-out shows at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl, Mercury Lounge and Blue Note on September 14, 12 and 10 respectively. See below for a complete list of tour dates.
Living Room—co-produced by Jordan Cohen (tenor/baritone sax), Jonny Koh (guitar), Eli Crews, Clyde Lawrence and Gracie Lawrence—chronicles the life of two kids growing up, coping with break-ups, make-ups, family loss and finding harmony between excitement, anxiety, melancholy and empowerment.
Clyde Lawrence, 24, and Gracie Lawrence, 21, have been writing songs and listening to countless Stevie Wonder, Randy Newman and Aretha Franklin records together in the living room of their family’s New York City apartment since they were little kids. After years of playing together, they officially created Lawrence, an eight-piece soul-pop band comprised of musicians who happen to be their best friends from childhood and college. The keyboard-driven rhythm section and horns create dynamic arrangements to support Clyde and Gracie’s lead vocals and melodies.
In addition to the band, Clyde and Gracie also work in other artistic fields. Clyde has composed songs and score for films such as Miss Congeniality (2000), Music and Lyrics (2007), The Rewrite (2015), Landline (2017) and an upcoming Disney film Noelle (2019). At age six, Clyde was admitted as the youngest member to the Songwriters Guild of America. Gracie can be seen as a series regular in the role of Julie Gardner in the upcoming CBS All-Access murder mystery, $1 alongside John Caroll Lynch, Leslie Odom Jr. and Sturgill Simpson, which premieres August 30. Gracie has also appeared on Broadway in “Brighton Beach Memoirs” (2009) and in films such as The Sitter (2011), upcoming film Adam (set to be released 2018), Did You Hear About the Morgans? (2009) and in television shows such as The Good Wife (2012), The Americans (2014) and Younger (2015).
