Biography

She landed her first major breakthrough as a songwriter, co-writing Rihanna’s song “Cheers (Drink to That)” featured on Rihanna’s fifth studio album Loud, released on 12 November 2010 on Def Jam Recordings. “Cheers” features a vocal hook performed by L.P. (taken from Avril Lavigne’s “I’m with You”). In a 2010 interview with MTV News, Rihanna said: “I love that song [‘Cheers’]. That is one of my favorite songs on the album. It makes you feel like celebrating. It gives you a great feeling inside like you want to go out and have a drink. … People can’t wait for the weekend.”

L.P.’s major label songwriting breakthroughs continued, as she co-wrote “Beautiful People” performed by Christina Aguilera. The song is featured on the Burlesque: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack album, which was released on 22 November 2010 through RCA Records. In June 2011, L.P. co-wrote “Afraid to Sleep” which was performed by NBC’s The Voice finalist Vicci Martinez and reached #10 on iTunes Top Singles Chart.

In September 2011, L.P. signed a deal with Warner Bros. Records. Shortly after, “Into the Wild”, written and performed by LP, was prominently used in a Citibank national TV ad campaign.

In April 2012, L.P. released her first major label album Into the Wild (Live at EastWest Studios), a 5-song live EP, and started touring extensively - including festivals such as SXSW, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Bumbershoot, Tropfest, Tokyo’s Sonic Boom and London’s Hyde Park. In 2012 she became the first female Martin Guitar Ambassador.

    "I Love You Lord" is not mistagged -- it's the gospel artist L.P. (Linda Pierce). This page should have a "there are multiple artists named LP" bio.

    When I first saw/heard the bank commercial, I could figure out most of the words & I thot they meant that somebody had left the gate open & all the peoples joyously escaped & were free! like a runaway train they were free! .. evidently that's not what laura meant; au contraire she seems to say that somebody left the gate (of civility? happiness?) open, & all the peoples wandered out & went astray, got lost, & ended up a runaway train gone wildly insanely down the track of life. .. so instead of a happy song, which is implicitly portrayed in the ad, well it's not really; .. a wonderful song either way, best song I've heard in years. .. question: how can a sad song be so uplifting?

    I'm really torn on this artist. Some of her songs are amazing like Into The Wild and Someday but a lot of it just seems like generic forgettable pop stuff. Really disappointing considering she has amazing vocals.

    I have to thank a credit card commercial for finding this but "into the wild" is liberating

    You can probably still buy her 1st album, "Heart-Shaped Scar," on Amazon...
