Alex Lahey at The Grand Social
Catch Alex Lahey live on stage at The Grand Social on 16th May 2019.
'The Best Of Luck Club', is the recent effort from Alex Lahey. Irresistibly catchy hooks abound throughout this Australian songwriter and multi-instrumentalist's assured second full-length with Lahey's distinctively candid lyricism giving a voice to millennial ennui. The ten songs on this record document 12 months during which Lahey navigated "the highest highs and the lowest lows" in her life to date.
After impressing viewers all around the world during her American TV debut on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers' in late-2017, 2018 saw Lahey booked for a string of Australian festivals including Falls, Groovin The Moo and Splendour In The Grass Lahey also played iconic North American festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, Osheaga, Hangout and Bottlerock.
If you've caught one of Lahey's recent live shows, you might have already heard an early version of 'Don't Be So Hard On Yourself' - the lead single from 'The Best Of Luck Club' - but the album version of this song now contains added "raging saxophone solo". Lahey acknowledges her mum Vicki is thrilled that she can now see a return on her investment after pouring so much money into her daughter's saxophone lessons over the years. "It was almost cathartic, because I hadn't played sax for so long and there was an element of it being a bit tongue in cheek," Lahey tells, "but I think more than anything it pays homage to my past."
