She has written songs for pop stars like Cher, Christina Aguilera, and Rihanna, until she finally had a breakthrough with her superhit “Lost on you” in 2016, which became the fourth most searched song in Shazam after the summer of 2016. The video and live versions have nearly 300 million views on YouTube, and they were played nearly 100 million times on Spotify. You can enjoy her typical whistling, catchy tunes, tambourine, ukulele, and unmistakable voice at Pohoda 2018.
Laura Pergolizzi began as a street musician in New York, where she was discovered by David Lowery of the band Cracker at the end of the 90s. David was the producer of her debut album Heart Shaped Scar released in 2001. Despite being very talented, she had to wait for her greatest moments 15 more years. In June 2004, she launched her second album Suburban Sprawl & Alcohol that featured Linda Perry (the singer of 4 Non Blondes). A major success came after 2010, when LP wrote the song “Cheers (Drink to That)” for Rihanna, which Rihanna on her turn said was one of her favourite. Shortly afterwards, she wrote “Beautiful People” for Christina Aguilera. In 2012, her song “Into the Wild” was well received, and subsequently she released her EP Into the Wild: Live at EastWest Studios. It was followed by the third studio album “Forever for Now” in 2014. In September 2015, she released the song “Muddy Waters” which Netlflix featured in the closing scene of the season four finale of the series Orange Is The New Black. The real break in her career, however, came two months later with the song “Lost on you” that topped charts in 12 countries, including Slovakia and the Czech Republic. At the end of the same year, she released her fourth album Lost on You and last year she followed up with the extended re-editions of the last two albums. Last yearʼs concert at the Prague club Roxy sold out in just five minutes. We are happy to be able to see her at Pohoda too.
