Alternative R&B artist Steve Lacy is in a presumably small class of musicians who have co-produced a Grammy-nominated album while enrolled in high school.
Befriended his freshman year by Jameel Bruner of the Internet, Lacy joined that band as guitarist, vocalist, and co-producer prior to the recording of their third album. That release, Ego Death, debuted in the upper half of the Billboard 200 and was subsequently nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Urban Contemporary Album. Lacy released a pair of funky, easygoing singles of his own -- "C U Girl" and "Some" -- in 2015 and 2016, then followed it in early 2017 with the six-track Steve Lacy's Demo EP. It arrived just after the solo debuts of bandmates Syd and Matt Martians. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
