LULU FALL is a singer, songwriter and actor currently based in New York. Lulu, 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.

She independently released her debut EP, It’s Official in 2009, both in Washington DC and London, and a collaborative EP, Heal: Part 1, with the LF+JT (Lulu Fall and James Theory) project in 2015.  Lulu was a finalist in the 4th annual Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Jazz Competition, 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. Lulu is currently back on Broadway with Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812.  More at lulufall.com
