Sonic storytellers Lost In Los Angeles (LiLA) played a special acoustic performance at A Walk On Water‘s Art Show Fundraiser on Sunday, May 18th. It was a beautiful evening raising money for a great cause – helping special needs children through surf therapy.
The event was hosted by Scott Caan (Ocean’s Eleven, Hawaii 5-0) at Goodform Salon in Los Angeles. Silent auction items from Shepard Fairey & Steven Lippman were made available for bidding.
LiLA recently teamed up with USA TODAY to premiere their new video, “Cloud City”! The video features Hurley model Rosie O’Laskey, and is directed by Steven Lippman (All American Rejects, Incubus, Ben Harper). “Cloud City” is the first advance single off of LiLA’s upcoming full-length album, Love Is Fate, releasing in Summer 2014, to be produced by Omer Avni. Cloud City (Single & B-Sides) is now available on iTunes and major digital outlets worldwide.
The Los Angeles based quartet, Danny Klein (vocals, piano, synth), Eddie Deering (guitar, synth), Clark Souter (bass, vocals), and Iajhi Hampden (drums), use their music to explore their dreams, LiLA have emerged as true storytellers, wandering through hope, love and humanity, while wearing their hearts on their sleeves.
Pulling from varied musical inspirations such as Air, Depeche Mode, Led Zeppelin, Moby, U2, Elton John, and Jeff Buckley, LiLA stretches musical boundaries on all fronts, offering listeners personal musings about life and relationships. Combining impassioned melodies with lush, cinematic instrumentation, LiLA delivers dream-induced indie pop to those searching for something deeper.
After releasing their self-titled debut album in 2010, LiLA came back full force in May 2013 with their independently released The Hovering EP. The band spent their summer touring 28-cities around the U.S. on JVC Mobile U.S. Tour and went back home in LA to support their new radio single “Because of You”. For the visual counterpart of “Because of You,” LiLA again turned to director Steven Lippman who directed their award winning “Million Stars” video, which gained rotation on MTV and Vh1. The video for “Because of You” gained over 100,000 YouTube views in its first weekend. For updates, please visit Lost In Los Angeles‘ website here
