La La Lush brings an old-school intensity to the modern pop music scene. Their revolutionary sound binds the past with the present, while adding an exciting taste of the future. Blending heavy guitar riffs, syncopated funk rhythms, and the soulful touch of a raspy-pop female vocalist, La La Lush’s eclectic sound has captivated the attention of the music industry and music lovers alike.
Lead singer Leea Borst, keyboardist Stephen Federowicz, guitarist Steve Scarola, and drummer Cashel Barnett fused together their musical talents during their time at Fordham University in the Bronx, NY. It was also at Fordham University where the 4 members of the band began jamming with bassist Joe Farrell who went on to become the newest member of La La Lush. After playing a countless number of shows throughout New York City, the band has accumulated a large, dedicated following.
Yet the experience expands far beyond the confines of the city limits with guitarist Steve Scarola, a previous member of the highly successful Top 40 pop-rock band, Push Play. Scarola has shared the stage with many household names such as Justin Beiber, Third Eye Blind, and Aretha Franklin, helping him procure a cult fan base and impressive social media following that has successfully carried over to La La Lush.
Recently, La La Lush won Fordham University’s Battle of the Bands and were given the opportunity to play during Fordham’s Spring Weekend Concert. They were invited to share the stage with Saints of Valory, Andy Grammer and GROUPLOVE.
Their debut album, which dropped Feb. 9, 2013, is self-funded, self-produced, and self-titled; containing 11 original songs that collectively capture the multi-faceted sound that is La La Lush.
Each song embodies a new sound, a new groove, a new side of the band. No matter what type of music you identify with, you’re guaranteed to find what you’re looking for in La La Lush. No sound is left unexplored.
