More about Lachi:
As heard on Oprah Radio, Oxygen, NPR, CBS Radio, National Television and Indie Film, Lachi is a recording artist and songwriter based out of New York City. With a strong knack for hooks and harmonies, Lachi has been singing and songwriting from a very early age, singing and arranging in choirs and eventually founding an a cappella group, Cadence at UNC Chapel Hill. She began her professional career when an agent from Fanatic Promotions caught an acoustic set of hers at South by Southwest. Since then, she has released albums through EMI/Caroline and SONY. Lachi now works with Big Management Inc, writing for major artists and featuring on the tracks of established DJs and producers.
Lachi’s music can best be described as Pop, soul and electronic dance music with empowering messages.
She completed her first project album, “And This Is My Life,” full of solo piano pieces released June 6, 2006. The album is an intimate array of jazz, blues and mellow piano songs heavily influenced by life experiences throughout her college years. On January 24, 2009, she released her piano-driven alternative rock EP “Ugly Beautiful,” full of messages of inner growth. This EP demonstrates Lachi’s strong songwriting prowess, and though rock, still harbors much of her jazz influence through colorful chord progressions and random spouts of scatting.
She then got picked up by Fanatic Records/EMI-Caroline Distribution, who spotted her at a South by Southwest showcase and signed her for one album. On July 27, 2010, her self-titled piano-driven alternative rock album “Lachi” was released, which though edgier and more confident, held her message of inner growth and strength. The album garnered her a good deal of press and attention, landing her on Oprah Radio and winning her national TV and radio spins. During this time, Lachi performed at PrideFest (Milwaukee) (where she opened for Patti LaBelle).
Lachi then teamed up with Ray Archie to put out “It’s Our Time,” a song she wrote to aid in the launch of social music collaboration platform, Mixluv. This was a collaboration with Gary Pine, Shea Rose, and Kiyano Kim. She also flew out to L.A. to record tracks with Trend Def Productions while putting the finishing touches on her first full-length novel, “The Ivory Staff.”
In June 2015 Lachi released The Boss EP through Trend Def’s Sony Music Entertainment imprint. Again an album of empowerment, the EP is a high-energy foray into commercial Pop/Dance touched with Dubstep. The single “Boss” found a prominent feature on Oxygen Networks’s Bad Girls Club.
In October 2015 Lachi released her Fiction narrative, The Ivory Staff, under the name M. Lachi through the independent publisher, Library Tales Publishing.
Lachi spent most of 2016 songwriting and composing for independent production companies and artists. In August 2016, Lachi teamed up with Israeli World Music producer Zafrir Ifrach and Moroccan vocalist Maxime Karouchi to create the Mediterranean-infused EDM track Dalale.
