Biography

The little girl of the fantastic Donny Hathaway, Lalah Hathaway produced an excellent impression with her self-titled debut recording in 1990. She not merely displayed poise, self-confidence, and great technique, but was also flexible enough to accomplish more than simply light urban modern ballads. Her stage displays included jazz, pre-rock pop, and also gospel, and Hathaway later on appeared on Wager performing jazz and fusion. After her second and last recording for Virgin, 1994’s AN INSTANT, she continued an extended hiatus, coming back in 1999 with Joe Test for The Music Lives On (GRP). The next decade and in to the 2010s she released Outrun the Sky (Sanctuary, 2004), Self Family portrait (Stax, 2008), and Where EVERYTHING Starts (Stax, 2011) — all good albums concerning collaborations with famous brands Mike Town, Rahsaan Patterson, Rex Rideout, and Dre & Vidal. They founded Hathaway among the finest adult modern R&B vocalists from the 2000s and 2010s. A 2013 cooperation with the music group Snarky Puppy — on the cover of Brenda Russell’s “Something” — earned a 2014 Grammy Honor in the group of Greatest R&B Performance. The next year, because of her part in Robert Glasper Experiment’s upgrade of Stevie Wonder’s “Jesus Kids of America,” Hathaway found the Grammy for Greatest Traditional R&B Efficiency. She then documented and released Live. A record of back-to-back models documented at Los Angeles’ Troubadour, exactly the same location her father performed in 1971 — as noticed on the 1st part of his 1972-released recording of the same name — it had been released in 2015. A edition of “Small Ghetto Boy” got the 2016 Grammy for Greatest Traditional R&B Efficiency.
