Leader Shannon's original songs combine raw, honest lyrics with a sonic palette influenced by the sounds of jazz, neo-soul, R&B, and pop. From their first performances, the group quickly evoked comparisons to Steely Dan, Moonchild, and Stevie Wonder.

At once tender and soulful, funky and driving, LAZULA is an original neo-soul quartet focusing on lush jazz harmony and satisfying grooves, shuttling the listener from soulful verse to driving chorus with ease.


From March 2016 to February 2017, LAZULA was known as the Shannon Chapman Band.
