Laura Pergolizzi has the perfect initials for music making. And a voice that resounds like cathedral bells is a bonus. Her talent was picked up by David Lowery, frontman of the American cult band Cracker. He guided the New Yorker through her first steps. Not much happened. But that all changed in 2006 when she made an unforgettable impression at South by Southwest, the annual music conference in Austin, Texas. This discovery led at first to a bunch of songs written for others. ‘Beautiful People’ by Christina Aguilera, ‘Cheers (Drink to That)’ by Rihanna and ‘Red’ by Cher are all her work. Under her own name, Pergolizzi had a European hit in 2016 with ‘Lost on You’. In France, she got to number one with ‘N’Oublie Pas’, a duet with Mylène Farmer. A true professional.
