BIO: In his youth, Atlantic Records showcased Lloyd and paired him with producer Garry Tallent (E-Street Band) to record in Nashville. Love and inspiration led the singer/songwriter to relocate his career to Israel. He moved his vintage guitar collection to the Middle East and joined psychedelic Israeli jam band Reva L’Sheva. His solo 2012 electric release, “My Own Blues,” attracted international attention. In 2013, Lazer joined forces with his manager Yo Seidman to create Lots of Love Records and release a compilation, "Insides Out”. In 2015 his new studio album, "Lazer Lloyd", won widespread praise in the music press and spent twelve weeks on the Roots Music Report chart, won #3 RMR Blues/Rock CD of the year.
He is currently recording a new Americana album with producer Eric Paul (Townes van Zandt, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson) for release later this year.
