Widely regarded as LA's most unsung songwriter, Laslow Simplex creates little tunes that take on life's bigger picture. Ready to find inspiration almost anywhere, he wanders the sun-roasted streets and desert highways in search of insights, outtakes, and off-ramps.
Skirting the outer margins of folk-rock, country, jazz, and Americana, Laslow’s music is a singular, often bare-knuckle brew. He draws on a wide range of influences: Nick Cave, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Chet Baker, Elvis Costello, Johnny Cash, Talking Heads, Django Reinhart, Jimmie Rodgers, and dozens more. A musician since childhood, he’s played in every imaginable context, from big bands to sawdust-floored country bars to festival stages and dark urban coffee-houses.
When away from the microphone, he can almost alway be found with a camera in hand, or modifying one more guitar - because there's always another image and another sound waiting.
