All who Wander are Lozt
The duo LOZT (pronounced ‘lost’) comprises Lauren Scudder from Orange County, California, and Tom Ryder from London, UK. Both solo acts in their own right, the pair have come together to blend genres, voices and cultures. In the past few months LOZT have performed in notable venues around the UK and are in the midst of recording their debut EP with producers Stu Hanna, Dave Gerard and double Grammy winner Robbie Nelson. An evening with LOZT brings plenty of chemistry, plenty of emotion and more than a few laughs. Expect soulful Americana with strong harmonies and witty, heartfelt lyrics.
Tom Ryder grew up in Bishop's Stortford on the outskirts of London, and initially operated as an acoustic duo with school friend Joe Hazell, aged 13. This evolved into four-piece band The Kazans, who became well-known in the south east of the UK over the next decade. Tom initiated his solo project in 2015 and, several releases later, he has performed on four continents and in front of Rod Stewart, topping the iTunes singer/songwriter charts in the process.
Southern California native Lauren Scudder writes compelling narratives accompanied by lilting guitar. Fusing jazz, pop, folk and R&B, her style is reminiscent of Corinne Bailey Rae and Joss Stone. Classically trained at a young age and well-versed in musical theatre, Lauren has performed at iconic venues including the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Carnegie Hall in New York, Berklee College of Music in Boston, The South Bank in London and La Madeleine in Paris.
