Part Feist and part Joan Jett, powerful, genre-defying, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter LP (Laura Pergolizzi) was raised in New York on a steady diet of Joni Mitchell, the Doors, the Pretenders, Nirvana, and Jeff Buckley. She spent her formative years honing her craft in other bands before releasing her 2001 solo album, Heart-Shaped Scar (produced by David Lowery [Camper Van Beethoven, Cracker]), and relocating to California. She began to hit her stride in 2004 with her second outing, Suburban Sprawl & Alcohol, which featured the track "Wasted," used as the theme song for seasons two and three of the Nickelodeon teen drama South of Nowhere. Her 2006 appearance at the South by Southwest Music Conference prompted a bidding war, resulting in a deal with Island. With Island, Pergolizzi began writing songs for other artists, including Heidi Montag, Rihanna, and Christina Aguilera. A 2011 Citibank television commercial, which featured excerpts from LP's "Into the Wild," gained Pergolizzi a huge fan base as viewers eagerly looked to the Internet to discover the identity of the artist singing "Somebody left the gate open" -- the track earned enough attention to warrant a CNN news piece. Her Warner Bros. debut EP, Into the Wild: Live at Eastwest Studios, appeared in April 2012 but it was another two years until her full-length debut album, the Rob Cavallo-produced Forever for Now, saw release. In 2016, LP issued her much-anticipated fourth studio long-player, Lost on You, via Vagrant Records. The album's opening track, "Muddy Waters," appeared during the taut closing scene of the season four finale of Netflix's Orange Is the New Black. ~ James Christopher Monger
