Rising Stars: Meet Little Lazy

Today we’d like to introduce you to Little Lazy. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Little Lazy is a small band with a big sound. We, Brendan Pafford and Kevin Cook, crossed paths in 2019 thanks to a mutual friend on Facebook, and have been making music and moves ever since. The musical chemistry was there from day one, which led to us writing our first ever song, “Daytime Shakes”, that night. It actually became our first ever release and we haven’t looked back! After evolving our sound, a bit and connecting with a management team, Self Inc., we’ve been focusing on writing music, performing, and just enjoying the ride. 

As of November 5th, we released our last single of the year, “Rich Man”, which we’re incredibly proud of. It’s a bluesy, rock track that illustrates the disparity between the lowly, frontline worker and the “rich man” at the top of the corporate food chain. You can check it out on Spotify, Apple Music, or anywhere else you listen to music! 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
The biggest struggle so far has been Covid and navigating the music scene in the midst of a pandemic. We picked up some momentum in early 2020 but that nearly came to a halt when venues started shutting down. From there, we shifted our focus to live streams, social media posts, connecting with other bands and artists, and just trying to be as present as possible with our fanbase. 

Another challenge we first had was being a 2-piece band. Since there’s only guitar, drums, and vocals, many people would mention the lack of a bassist when we first started out. However, with the help of some clever tools and tricks, we managed to bridge that gap to get that full band sound. 

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Being a 2-piece rock band definitely made us stand out from the get-go. Brendan plays guitar and sings while Kevin plays drums. We’ve also managed to fine-tune our sound which allows us to really fill up the room with only 2 guys on stage. Along with our high energy shows, this probably sets us apart the most. 

We’re incredibly proud of having a supportive team that allows us to focus on making music and performing. We know some amazing individuals who can help us with advice, creating videos and content, and with the oh-so-fun business side of things. 

Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
Lots of mentors and supporters involved over here! We rely on our management team, Self Inc., to help us make important decisions, open up opportunities, and to provide guidance in our career. 

From day one, we’ve also had undying support from our friends and family who come out to shows, buy merch, share our music, and support our dream. Without them and everyone else we’ve met along the way; we’d just be 2 guys playing music in a garage. 

We’re also lucky enough to work with talented engineers and producers (shout out Ian Marchionda!) who have helped us shape our sound in the studio while genuinely giving a sh*t about our vision.
