Lake Street Dive

As a band, Lake Street Dive epitomizes democracy in action in their writing and arrangement duties. Their personalities, skills, and wide-ranging taste in pop, rock, R&B, and jazz have long blended together to make an impressively cohesive sound, both sophisticated and playful, combining retro influences with contemporary attitude. The band –Rachael Price (lead vocals, ukulele, guitar), Bridget Kearney (bass, piano, vocals), Mike Calabrese (drums, organ, vocals) and Akie Bermiss (keyboards, organ, vocals)–teamed up with Mike Elizondo, music director of Chris Thile’s Live From Here series, on its latest recording project, Obviously. Says Price, “Obviously is the first word in the song ‘Hypotheticals’—an undeniable dance track, a great way to say, ‘We are back!’”
