Born in war-torn Vietnam and airlifted to the US in the mass evacuation of orphans, Lara Price is a survivor–with an indisputable right to sing the blues. Price battled her way up the soul-blues ranks with five albums and a sixth release “I Mean Business” became a knockout, noted by her nomination as one of 2016's Blues Music Award's best female artists.
Price discovered the power of music at the tender age of 6, when she started taking piano lessons in England with legendary 80’s music innovator Howard Jones. At the age of 12 she found her singing voice. She arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1997 to pursue her dream of singing in a band. By 1998, Price began running her own blues jam at JJ’s Blues in San Jose, and was featured in an inspiring article about blues jams in the September issue of the Blues Revue Magazine. She has impacted Blues and other genres in the Bay Area and on tour. In late 2016, Lara moved to Austin, Texas, to make her mark there.
