Felice LaZae is a storytelling singer/songwriter whose bluesy, soulful rock music imitates life with a cinematic twist. What does that mean? That means she sings about the things we all think about, the things we all struggle with, and the fantasies we can’t live out in real life. LaZae’s new intensely seductive song, “I Need to Feel,” was recently featured on an HGTV commercial to promote their hit show, “Flip or Flop.” This success followed her recent feature in the official 2015 GRAMMY’s #StepIntoTheCircle promotional teaser and video sponsored by Ciroc. Before that, LaZae had a successful start to the new year when she performed at ESPN’s Pre-Super Bowl XLIX event, Fan Fest 2015, in Scottsdale, Arizona.
For Felice LaZae, writing music is about sharing life experiences. She draws inspiration from storytelling geniuses like Alfred Hitchcock and Quentin Tarantino, and she likes to think of her songs as mini penny dreadfuls. LaZae is also inspired by the soulful rock sound of musicians like Janis Joplin and Led Zeppelin, but she also admires the vocal styling and timing of Billie Holiday and funk singer, Betty Davis. “Betty is very rock and roll,” says LaZae, “but she also has a lot of soul, and I really like that. I try to bring that into my music too.”
Felice LaZae’s “Give It Away” EP is rich with the seductive sounds of the blues, and every song highlights her soulful, commanding vocals. In “Callin Me,” LaZae puts our self-control to the test with her taunting lyrics and provocative, come-hither melody. The title track, “Give It Away,” is full of that exciting feeling we willingly surrender to when we’re out with someone we desire. In contrast, “Flowers” explores the utter despair we can fall victim to when a relationship ends and love is lost. Finally, in “Grave Digger,” LaZae laments about being impossibly addicted to a bad relationship.
LaZae likes the confluence of sounds from different genres and loves creating a nouveau, bluesy sound with a classic rock feel. Like movies, which are exaggerations of real life, LaZae’s music is all about telling a story that people can relate to. LaZae tells those tales, ripe with emotion, in her songs. “I want to personally connect with people through my music. I want to inspire and create music that can be the soundtrack for your life through good and hard times.”
Felice LaZae has performed at some of the most iconic venues in Los Angeles including House of Blues, The Viper Room, Whisky A Go-Go, The Mint, and The Vaucluse Lounge, formerly Charlie Chaplin’s house and a 20’s-era speakeasy.
