Lanford Black is Seattle soul and grit. Blending vintage soul and funk with modern indie rock, LB creates a feeling they call "electric sweat". Their sound is highlighted by raw vocals, tight harmonies and a twin rhythm section laying down embryo-splitting grooves. According to Seattle Music Insider, “The chemistry between the band members is fantastic, and they make it obvious that they truly love making music together.”
