Artist Review: Lettrice Lawrence

Review By: Justyn Brodsky

The new Queen of Funk has entered the building. And carries with her not only the crown, but a sound that electrifies Funk and Blues in a whole new direction.

Lettrice Lawrence has a sound that I’d like to classify as Funk-Tronic in her track “Get Outta My Way”. A self confident track that has an EDM touch to her Soul Food for the ear. And her voice definitely brings out the Soul and solidification to this eclectic sound, with some key influences that can be heard from other Soul/Blues and Funk Legends such as Earth Wind & Fire, Luther Vandross, and Anita Baker. It’s a great new generation sound that has those key influences implemented into a very charismatic vocal approach with vivacious delivery in her Tone and Range. 

Her next track, a story-teller called “My Man” speaks for itself with its title. This one has a more traditional sound and a great blend of clean guitar tones that are great cornerstones for Lettrice‘s vocal delivery. You can almost deem this song as the Female version of Jimi Hendrix’s “Hey Joe”. And to pull that off is what really makes Lettrice worthy of the crown. It’s a vicious vocal attack, a Bluesy and Progressive masterpiece, and can easily be performed to a sold out crowd at Harlem’s Apollo Theater.

Make no mistake, Lettrice Lawrence knocked me off my shoes with the elements and dynamics from both tracks. And if that was her intention…well done. Now us at Artist Reach want more. And after you take a listen to Miss Lawrence yourself, so will you.
