TWOFEW is a five-piece piano rock outfit based in Phoenix, Arizona. The band offers a new flavor of piano rock with unique playing styles, rich undertones, vibrant and immersive guitars, deep backing bass and smooth, syncopated drumming. It's topped off with one-of-a-kind vocals, memorable melodies and eclectic lyrics that make this group stand out.
TWOFEW began as a side project when Michael-Jon Lazar, founder of the popular Phoenix rock outfit, Complicate/Simple, picked up the piano again. Following a 20 year hiatus, Michael spent a few years shaking the dust off on his piano licks and working on developing new music. When his band suddenly lost their bassist, Michael’s wife, Danielle Lazar, stepped in to fill the shoes for a few months. Following the transition to a new bass player, the Lazar duo formed TWOFEW as a Vocal/Piano/Bass outfit.
Shortly after, they added Michael’s brother, David Lazar, to the group on guitar. After composing their debut single, “On The Run,” the band had finally found its purpose and direction. They immediately booked studio sessions to record the song and produce the music video, releasing it just six weeks later.
A few weeks after that, the group dropped another single and music video, "Dreamin,'" which has received raving reviews and has captured them a dedicated fan base.
Following the success of this track, Michael-Jon disbanded Complicate/Simple to pursue adventures in TWOFEW. The group quickly found a new home at Mind Rage Music Studios. The more complete focus and a stronger supporting cast was perfectly timed for the band to start working with major label engineers in Nashville.
In July, 2021, the band added John Grigsby as their drummer. Later in July, the group added Phoenix guitar legend, Mike Liebbe, as their new rhythm guitarist, rounding out this rock fivesome.
The group released a single called "Fighting For" in August, 2021. The band immediately followied that up with a brand-new single and music video they shot and recorded in Nashville called "Lips Blue." A few weeks later, they dropped the single "GONE."
TWOFEW earmarked a new direction by dropping a hot single called "The War" in early 2022, a critically acclaimed single that was mixed and mastered by multi-Grammy award-winning engineer, Brendan Dekora; the song painted the bleak picture of what War really looks likes.
TWOFEW is currently putting the final touches on a new single called "When We Save The World." Due to drop in May, 2022.
TWOFEW is traveling to LA in late August, 2022 to cut two new singles at the Foo Fighter's invite-only and secretive Studio 606. More news to follow.
