Clyde Lawrence '15 and Gracie Lawrence '20 have been writing songs and listening to countless Stevie Wonder, Randy Newman, and Aretha Franklin records in their family’s New York City apartment since they were little kids. During Clyde and Gracie's time at Brown, the full-time Lawrence lineup met for the first time, creating an eight-piece keyboard-driven powerhouse with a dynamic horn section to support the siblings’ explosive vocal arrangements. This soul-pop group also features Brown alums: Michael Karsh '14 (bass), Jonny Koh '13 (guitar), Sam Askin '13 (drums), Sumner Becker '14 (alto sax) and Marc Langer '13 (trumpet.)
