Multi-instrumentalist Atom Lazare delivers the perfect dichotomy between rhythm and fluidity. A drummer at his core, Atom’s debut EP The Word is a window into early inspiration, with both structured and unstructured music acting as a blanket beneath his powerful lyrics. Spirituality is deeply rooted in his words, carrying a wisdom that reflects the intricate communication between instruments. At only twenty-one years old, Atom is unafraid to touch on mature and important topics such as substance abuse and unfaithfulness. In his song “Another Man’s Shoes,” he sings: “Nothing ever comes of the drinking and the drugs – of wasting all your time – wearing another man’s shoes.”
Technique lays the foundation for Atom’s songs, exploring fusion and soul styles. He pulls inspiration from progressive artists such as Snarky Puppy as well as classics like Peter Gabriel and David Bowie, creating an unparalleled sound that echoes generations of popular music. Currently studying performance and songwriting at Berklee College of Music, Atom’s work demonstrates the evolving dedication to his craft.
