Part Feist and part Joan Jett, powerful, genre-defying, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter LP (Laura Pergolizzi) was raised in New York on a steady diet of Joni Mitchell, the Doors, the Pretenders, Nirvana, and Jeff Buckley. She spent her formative years honing her craft in other bands before releasing her 2001 David Lowery-produced solo album Heart-Shaped Scar. She began to hit her stride in 2004 with her second outing, Suburban Sprawl & Alcohol, and she went on to write songs for other artists, including Heidi Montag, Rihanna, and Christina Aguilera. A 2011 Citibank television commercial, which featured excerpts from LP's "Into the Wild," garnered Pergolizzi a huge fan base. Her third studio album, Into the Wild, was released in 2012. ~ James Christopher Monger
