“Lanza’s formula is simple, suggesting heavy emotions with few words and a light touch.”
If we’re in the midst of a dance music renaissance, Jessy Lanza is one of the form’s torchbearers. As Lanza laces deeply sensual vocals over a dynamic tapestry of uptempo production styles, all frequencies are welcomed and cherished. Jessy has crafted a new and vibrant pop aesthetic that is both universal, energetic, yet personal and introspective.
Jessy Lanza is a producer, vocalist and DJ from Hamilton, Canada who currently lives in LA. She has released three studio albums; Pull My Hair Back, Oh No , and All the Time on London's respected Hyperdub label, and in 2021 she released a DJ Kicks mix with K7. Her releases have been met with near universal praise and featured in The Guardian, New York Times, Pitchfork, and more. Jessy has solo toured across North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. She's also supported Caribou and Yaejion each of their respective tours. She also received a Juno nomination for Best Electronic Album in 2020 and was on the Polaris shortlist in 2014 and‘16.
Her forthcoming album, Love Hallucination sees her working with producers such as Pearson Sound, Jacques Greene, Tensnake, Paul White, and Jeremy Greenspan, broadening and experimenting with her sound like never before, the collection of songs are her best yet.
