Steve Lacy the new Pharrell Williams ?
Yes it is a big stretch. But hear me out.
If you have been living under a rock and still don't know who Steve Lacy is, he s one part of the band called The Internet, who had an amazing year last year with the release of their first album Ego Death and world tour. After the tour, the group decided to focus on their solo projects; Syd being the first to drop her EP Fin and then Matt Martians with his EP The Drum Chord Theory and third but not least, Steve Lacy dropped his EP Steve Lacy's Demo and it's definitely the wave of the future.
Steve Lacy is an 18 year old musician, writer and producer who produced and wrote the Grammy nominated album Ego Death with his band. Steve recently graduated high school and due to being in school he couldn't attend much of the world tour dates or interviews last year. Instead he used that energy to create his EP and other gems found on his Soundcloud account.
He also has produced for Jhene Aiko and Big Sean for their Twenty88 project last spring and is currently on tour with The Internet where they will perform their solo albums and top hits from their Ego Death album.
While Steve may have a way to go before he can catch up to his idol Pharrell Williams, his pharrell-esque sex appeal and 70's funk vibes puts him in the right spot.
