Lara Price Lara Price Born in war-torn Vietnam and airlifted to the US in the mass evacuation of orphans, Lara Price is a survivor–with an indisputable right to sing the blues. In 1997 she moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, where her strikingly soulful voice and multiple instrumental skills earned her a place in a variety of bands. She toured across the US and China, and produced, co-wrote and released 5 genre-spanning CDs, the most recent in 2010. Then Lara immersed herself in the Bay Area music scene and took the time to find her focus. Drawn to music with a 60’s soul/blues vibe, especially those with great backup singers, she envisioned and recorded her career-defining new album, I MEAN BUSINESS. Featuring guests Jim Pugh, Chris Cain, Mighty Mike Schermer, Laura Chavez, and the Sweet Nectar backup singers, produced by Kid Andersen at Greaseland Studios.
