Thursday, January 29th, 2009

NEW YORK, NY –– January 21 2009 – The 6412 Ltd is proud to present Lachi in concert on Saturday January 24th at 9pm to release the anticipated “Ugly Beautiful” EP album. The release will be held at Gavin Degraw’s National Underground on 159 E Houston St, NY NY.

Sultry, smooth, intelligent and bold, singer/songwriter and pianist Lachi commands cleverly crafted, insightful yet quirky lyrics in her new EP “Ugly Beautiful” best categorized as piano-driven, jazz-influenced alternative rock. Partly inspired by the trials and tribulations she faces as a legally blind Nigerian-American female from her shy childhood to her world-traveling adulthood, her lyrics steer away from mediocrity and carry with them a message of natural beauty and internal conflict. She holds a deep connection with her music, which can be felt and shared by everyone who watches her on stage. One fan said, “Lachi’s music and her whole being is quite touching to me. her songs are honest from the heart and her voice is a classic.” Another voiced that Lachi “is so passionate when she sings. You really can feel her pain, her joy, or her struggle.”

The “Ugly Beautiful” EP will be physically distributed regionally through Borders Books and Music. The album will also be digitally distributed world-wide through leading distributor Music Just Music™, making it available on digital avenues such as Itunes, MSNmusic, SONYconnect, MTV/Urge, Nokia, Starbucks/Hearmusic and countless others. With an increasing influx of FM and internet radio play requests, along with a green light in licensing through Pump Audio Licensing, Lachi is proving to be one of New York City’s great new emerging artists. “We Can Fly,” a featured track which speaks of the ability to overcome struggles against odds, has already reviewed positively, described as “hit worthy” by Pam Southwell of RPW Records. The track has already been placed on the Violet Femme’s compilation album nationally distributed by RPW Records, and the Girl Power compilation album nationally distributed by Acoustic Fuel.

The CD Release will take place at Gavin Degraw’s new venue The National Underground on 159 E Houston between Allen and Eldridge in New York (near First Avenue). Though young, the venue is acclaimed for its great selection of musical artists. The National Federation for the Blind has embraced Lachi with open arms ever since she joined the organization, and they have agreed to sponsor the event with an official presence at the show. Celebrated artists Emiko and Allison Cipris will also be performing that night, presenting a wonderful evening of women in music.

Lachi is available for phone interview and possible live interview in the Mid-Atlantic region. Please contact Emiko at The6412 LTD at for further arrangements.
