She writes her songs like she tells the story of her life. Felice LaZae goes through the musical process, pouring her heart and soul into her creations.
Growing up in a musical family has always led her to love the art of singing and songwriting. Among her influences include Led Zepellin, Janis Joplin, and Billie Holiday.
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.
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.”
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 as well as new hot spots like Villains Tavern in the Downtown LA Arts District.
