Chogyi Lama

Chogyi Lama, 20 year old guitarist/singer/writer/producer from Woodstock, New York, moves intuitively across genres and styles, embodying whatever he is playing. His original songs and smooth neo-soul vocals are reminiscent of a young Maxwell or D’Angelo, his guitar playing is fierce yet fluid. Headlining as Chogyi Lama, he also regularly performs as part of 420 Funk Mob and in Simi Stone’s core band. His work with Darryl Jenifer & Gary Miller (Doctor Know) has brought him to both RIOT and Growlers Fest stages— performing with Bad Brains and into the studio with artists Lenny White, John Medeski, and Denzel Curry among others (be on the lookout, for more from the Bad Brains fam). Sitting in with some of the industry’s most inspiring artists, he has come to be known as a remarkable guitar player with elegance, power and humility far beyond his years. His recent shows have called out his diverse, multigenerational audience who expected to hear guitar focused sets, and met a singer, songwriter and performer who continues to surprise and inspire them. Chogyi’s been producing upcoming talent, nurturing collaborations and working on original music. In respect to his grand father Richie Havens, he kicked off the Golden Anniversary season at Bethel Woods Center For The Arts—the site of the Original Woodstock Festival (stay tuned for some summer announcements including Clearwater Festival) While lending his talent to others, he found the time to independently release “Karma”— written, played, recorded and produced in his home studio. The choice to single-handedly create this work was one that afforded him full freedom of expression. It’s out on all platform sand available here at WACBIZ for your licensing needs.
