Steve Lacy

Data updated on 2024-06-25 07:12:07 UTC
Steve Lacy is a prolific alternative R&B artist who began shaping his impressive music career at an incredibly young age, co-producing a Grammy-nominated album while still in high school. Well-known for being an accomplished guitarist, singer, songwriter, and producer, Lacy first emerged on the music scene in 2014 when he joined the band, the Internet, and featured prominently on their album "Ego Death" in 2015. This album, which received a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Urban Album, represents just the start of the musician's illustrious journey in the music industry.

Despite his young age, Lacy has shown immense professionalism and creativity in the various roles he has fulfilled in the music production process. His ability to collaborate across genres, coupled with his nuanced understanding of music, has made him a highly sought-after figure in the music industry. His collaborative contributions include hit songs such as J. Cole's "Foldin Clothes," Kendrick Lamar's "PRIDE.," Tyler, The Creator's "911/Mr. Lonely," and Vampire Weekend's "Sunflower," all added to Lacy's repertoire in the late 2010s.

As a solo artist, Steve Lacy's unmistakable sound is on full display in his emotionally resonant and heartwarming compositions. His solo works include the 2017 EP Steve Lacy's Demo, the Grammy-nominated full-length album Apollo XXI (2019), and the chart-topping Gemini Rights (2022), which won the Grammy for Best Progressive R&B Album in 2023.

Born in Compton, Lacy displayed a passion for music from an early age, which was nurtured by his mother who bought him his first guitar and arranged for lessons. His talent was soon discovered and brought to the fore when he met Jameel Bruner in his high school jazz band and subsequently joined the Internet. Since then, Lacy's innovative approach, not least his use of mobile applications for music production, has significantly shaped his work and led to over 4.5 billion Spotify streams to date – a testament to his wide-reaching appeal.

His most popular track "Dark Red," released in 2017, alone has over 925.8 million streams. However, his reach stretches significantly beyond his solo work, thanks to his collaborations with diverse artists in the industry. Lacy's overarching music career, both solo and collaborative, has left an indelible mark on the music industry, making him one of the most accomplished artists of his generation.
