*The Following Press Release Was Issued By Solters*
LP was SPIN’s July 2021 cover feature, who declared, “(Their) voice, a glorious warble that spans five octaves, has incited bidding wars between major labels.” Guitar World praised LP as, “One of the most compelling songwriters in the world right now,” American Songwriter dubbed LP a “Dynamic sonic force,” Flaunt called them a “Musical Banshee, melancholic rebel, headstrong gambler and lyrical truth-teller,” and TMRW Magazine said, “You could call (them) a singer songwriter, but that doesn’t quite do LP justice as an artist who creates pure poetry, which just happens to be sung along with some killer melodies.” Earmilk wrote, “It’s hard to think of a voice in modern music as hypnotizing as LP’s and (their) knack for pulling at your emotions is unmatched.” Pitch List podcast raved, “(They) will draw you in with (their) ethereal vocals; you’ll stay for gorgeous storytelling and an endearing personality” while Gay Star News enthused, “With a voice that dances between gravelly and ethereal, songs that proudly explore themes of same-sex love and a style that’s androgynous and effortlessly cool (think Harry Styles meets Linda Perry meets peak-Strokes)…”
The lush and captivating Churches was executive produced by Mike Del Rio (Kylie Minogue, X Ambassadors, Skylar Grey). In addition to tracks produced by Del Rio, Churches includes production by Isabella Machine Summers (Florence + The Machine); Nate Campany (Tove Lo, K.Flay, Christina Aguilera) and Kyle Shearer (Becky G, Tove Lo, Carly Rae Jepsen) – collectively known as Valley Girl; Lars Stalfors (Health, Local Natives, Cold War Kids); two-time Grammy winner Dan Wilson (Adele, Pink, Leon Bridges, James Bay); and Dan Nigro (Olivia Rodrigo, Carly Rae Jepsen, Sky Ferreira).
