Lulu Fall

vocalist

Lulu Fall is a singer, award-winning songwriter, and actor currently based in Detroit. Fall, a formally trained jazz vocalist with a musical theatre background, is one complete and unexpected package. As a product of Senegalese and Cameroonian parentage, her music reflects her global perspective by way of her American sensibilities.

Because Fall has a background in musical theatre, she alternates between that and music. Among other shows, she was a performer in the Smithsonian’s American Songbook Programand ensemble member in Studio Theatre’s adaptation of Passing StrangeShe was also a featured ensemble member in the acclaimed hippie love-rock musical HAIRboth the first National tour and Broadway. Her off-broadway credits include: Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812, the acclaimed musical Pretty Filthy, and acclaimed folk-opera Hadestown. Fall portrayed the character of Brenda in Capital Repertory’s production of Smokey Joe’s Cafe in Albany. Fall was most recently in Broadway production of Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812, and the off-Broadway productions of This Ain't No Disco and Wild Goose Dreams. Fall performed at the 71st Annual Tony Awards with the cast of Great Comet. Fall was a co-star in episode 3 of Random Acts of Flyness on HBO (Season 1). She was a guest star in the season 3 of The Last O.G. on TBS (Episode 7).

With a degree in Jazz Studies, Fall attended Michigan State University. She independently released her debut EP It’s Official in 2009, both in Washington DC and London. Her title track single can be found on Spotify. Fall also independently released a collaborative EP Heal: Part 1 with the LF+JT (Lulu Fall and James Theory) project in 2015. Fall's latest collaborative project album, The Unpaved Road, was released in August 2017 with writing partner Kris Johnson. This full-length album can be found on all major music platforms (iTunes, Spotify, CD Baby) as well as the Artist Centric Music label website (www.artistcentricmusic.com). The latest video single from this album, entitled "Painfully Sober," was exclusively released by AFROPUNK. Some of Fall’s music performances include the Winter Music Conference in Miami, FL, Blues Alley in Washington, DC, Langnau Jazz Nights Festival in Switzerland, Jazz Re:freshed in London and the Detroit Jazz Festival in Detroit, MI. Fall was a finalist in the 4th annual Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Jazz Competition. She won the Mid-Atlantic Song Competition (MASC) and was awarded Gold and Silver for her songs “Fight” and “No Better” in the R&B category. Fall was the honorable mention recipient of the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) for her song, “Between Two Worlds.” Her single “Pretty For a Dark Girl” was awarded TOP 5 WINNER in the R&B category of the Great American Song Contest.
