Lourds Lane

Lourds Lane is the creator of the 2013 Broadway-bound original musical, CHIX 6 (http://chix6.com). She wrote the book, music, and lyrics, and is one of the stars of the show—the electric-violin-playing superhero, “Rise.” Critically acclaimed, the NY Daily News raves: “It’s only a matter of time before [CHIX 6] is a smash hit.” A classically trained prodigy on violin and piano at the age of three, Lourds toured with youth orchestras in concert halls around the world. Eventually, with a sparkly, new electric violin as her main axe, she kicked in the distortion pedal and shredded her way on tours across North America, fronting her rock band, LOURDS, and amassing a die-hard nationwide fan base. Lourds Lane is the creator, host, and promoter of the NYC-based Medusa Festival (www.medusafestival.com), featuring the best emerging female-fronted bands in the country. She is also the founder of The Lightning Girl Fun-Dation, an arts-based after-school program for girls to discover a complete and visceral connection to their most empowered selves. As producer, multi-instrumentalist, and charismatic singer and songstress, Billboard hails, “Lourds Lane breaks the rules while poised to break into the big time!” (http://lourdslane.com)
