Lulu Fall and the Kris Johnson Group

LULU FALL is a singer, award-winning 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.

Because Lulu has a background in musical theatre, she alternates between that and music. Among other shows, some of her notable credits include: acclaimed hippie love-rock musical HAIR (first National tour and Broadway); Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 (Broadway and off-Broadway); acclaimed folk-opera Hadestown (off-Broadway); This Ain’t No Disco and Wild Goose Dreams (off-Broadway). Her TV credits include: Random Acts of Flyness (HBO); The Last O.G. (TBS); The 71st Tony Awards (ensemble performance for Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812).

With a degree in Jazz Studies, Lulu attended Michigan State University. Lulu Fall independently released her debut EP, It’s Official in 2009, both in Washington DC and London. Lulu also independently released a collaborative EP, Heal: Part 1, with the LF+JT (Lulu Fall and James Theory) project in 2015. Lulu’s latest collaborative project album, The Unpaved Road, was released in August 2017 with writing partner Kris Johnson. Lulu was a finalist in the 4th annual Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Jazz Competition. Lulu won the Mid-Atlantic Song Competition (MASC) in 2015 and was awarded Gold and Silver for her singles “Fight” and “No Better” in the R&B category. Her single “Pretty For a Dark Girl” was awarded TOP 5 WINNER in the R&B category of the Great American Song Contest. Lulu’s latest album, Between Two Worlds, was released in 2019 under Ropeadope Records.
