So, to lift my own spirits, and hopefully other people's, I decided to put together a proper concert here in LA, live-streamed everywhere, for everyone to be a part of. And, in support of our larger cultural issues, I'm donating a portion of proceeds to The National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) - a civil rights organization whose mission is to fight racism, homophobia, and LGBTQ/SQL bias and stigma.\"
LP rose to international fame with 2017's Lost On You. The album's hit title track has hit No. 1 in 18 countries, including being certified Diamond in Mexico and France, 4x Platinum in Italy, Platinum in Greece and Poland, Gold in Belgium and Switzerland, and has recently surpassed two billion streams.In December 2018, LP released Heart to Mouth featuring the singles \"Girls Go Wild\" and \"Recovery.\" \"Girls Go Wild,\" which was Italy's most-played radio hit of all of 2019, again made waves in spring 2020 thanks to a new version of the track featuring Mexican singer Ximena Sariñana.On May 29, 2020, LP released her first live album Live In Moscow. Recorded at Crocus City Hall in Moscow in 2019 in front of a sold-out crowd of more than 6000 fans, the 17-track performance spans multiple albums, including \"Lost On You\" and \"Girls Go Wild,\" along with two collaborative medleys that include covers from Kings of Leon & The Rolling Stones.LP is also a major global concert draw. In more than 125 cities worldwide, including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Greece, Israel, Turkey, Italy, France, the UK, she regularly sells between 2,500 and 10,000 tickets. LP frequently does what very few, if any, U.S. artists can do on the road internationally. As an example, in just one month, she toured 17 Russian and Ukrainian cities.
Pergolizzi was born in 1981 on Long Island, to an Italian father and mother, her paternal grandfather coming from Palermo and grandmother from Naples, Italy. Pergolizzi adopted the stage name \"LP\" after moving to New York City.
David Lowery of the band Cracker saw LP performing and featured her on \"Cinderella\", a hidden track on the band's 1998 album, Gentleman's Blues, which featured LP's backing vocals on two other tracks. Lowery followed up by producing LP's debut album Heart-Shaped Scar, released in 2001 through Koch Records. LP's second album, Suburban Sprawl & Alcohol, was released in June 2004 through Lightswitch Records. On the record, she collaborated with songwriter and music producer Linda Perry. However, in spite of extensive touring to promote the release and positive reviews from music critics, the album failed to gain widespread recognition.

Earlier this year, Nicolás' label Other People became fully not-for-profit. For more information, check out the label's website (www.other-people.net) & this spreadsheet which details all donations so far:
Telas (Veils) is multiple things at once. It's a visual terrain created by artist Somnath Bhatt. It's a record by Nicolás Jaar, with key contributions from Milena Punzi (cello), Susanna Gonzo (voice), Anna Ippolito & Marzio Zorio (instrument makers), and Heba Kadry (mastering). It's a digital terrain created by Abeera Kamran where the sounds and illustrations of Telas live in their primordial states. The site was imagined by Abeera, Somnath and Nicolás as a panspermic terrain where no matter -whether existing in thought, physical form or other- has a solid or unmovable origin.
From 2017-2019, Jaar worked as producer / writer with FKA Twigs on her lauded album 'Magdalene'. He has recently collaborated with artist Somnath Bhatt (2018-2020), artist/designer/coder Abeera Kamran (2020-2021), composer Patrick Higgins (2019-Ongoing), artist Lydia Ourahmane (2018), installation artist Vincent De Belleval (2016-Ongoing), saxophone player Mette Henriette (2014-Ongoing) and fado singer Carminho (2011) among others. As a producer, he's been comissioned remixes by Brian Eno (2013), Cat Power (2012), Florence and The Machine (2015) and more. His song \"Killing Time\" was sampled on \"Call Out My Name\", a 2018 song by The Weeknd. He is also a current member of performance ensemble miércoles! alongside dancer and choreographer Stéphanie Janaina, and part of the band DARKSIDE alongside multi-instrumentalist Dave Harrington.
Since 2013, he has curated the Other People music label (www.other-people.net), releasing music by Lydia Lunch, John Wall, Pierre Bastien, Terepa collective (Kouhei Matsunaga, Laurel Halo, Lucrecia Dalt, Rashad Becker, Charlotte Collin, Grégoire Simon, Julia Holter), William Basinski, Okokon, VTGNIKE, High Water, Lucrecia Dalt, Dave Harrington Group, Sary Moussa, Patrick Higgins and more. Other People has also featured the visual & audio work of artists Africanus Okokon, Jena Myung, Maziyar Pahlevan and Jaar. In 2017, The Network (www.other-people.network) a website of 111 fictional radio stations created by Jaar became a book, published by Printed Matter. In 2020, Other People began donating all of its profit revenue in forms of grants to artists, collectives and organizations around the world. 59ce067264
