Living Room continues to receive widespread critical praise;

Town & Country featured co-singer/songwriter, Gracie Lawrence, in their “Modern Swans” piece profiling some of the most exciting and accomplished young women in the world.

“Lawrence is already a force to reckon with—and they’re only getting started.” –Ladygunn

“They are combining influences of Stevie Wonder, Janis Joplin, The Beatles and Etta James, with modern trend setters like Beyoncé, Ben Folds and Amy Winehouse. Lawrence is trying to revolutionize the term ‘pop’ from a negative connotation to something people crave.” –Ones To Watch

“The brother/sister musical phenomenon you need to hear.” –Affinity

“Living Room shows off their mature musicality.” –DuJour

“Lawrence are already a bona fide phenomenon.” –Keyboard

“It’s the gospel flair, the R&B grooves, the instrumentation, the early soul tones—all wrapped in modern pop sensibilities.” –Analogue

“…if this groovy corner of the New York City scene is going to take the world by storm, Lawrence may well be its best bet for the future.” –Live for Live Music


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, 24, and Gracie, 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).
