 Chogyi Lama, 20 year old guitarist/singer/writer/producer from Woodstock, New York, is a shapeshifter—moving intuitively across genres and styles, embodying whatever he is playing. Sitting in with some of the industry’s most inspiring artists, he has come to be known as a remarkable guitar player with elegance, power and humility far beyond his years. While his original songs and Neo-Soul vocals are reminiscent of a young Maxwell or D’Angelo, his guitar playing is fierce yet fluid and his live shows bring out the Funk. Headlining as Chogyi Lama, he also regularly performs in support of 420 Funk Mob, Simi Stone and was recently spotted at the exclusive private venue, Soho House with Mr. Reed. His work with Darryl Jenifer & Gary Miller (Doctor Know) has brought him to both RIOT and Growlers Fest stages— performing with Bad Brains and into the studio with artists Lenny White, John Medeski, and Denzel Curry among others (be on the lookout, for more of that). His shows call out diverse, multi-generational audiences who he continues to surprise and inspire.
