Family Junket — indie / r&b music project from Chicago, US
Family Junket is the collective voice of Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist and producer, Max Lazarus, and Portland-native singer-songwriter, Laura Phillips. Originating in the middle-of-nowhere Ohio at their small liberal arts college, Laura and Max weaved through the cornfields and quickly started writing music together. Influenced by everything, and grounded in R&B, neo-soul, jazz, and hip-hop, their songs tell a personal and collective story about the ways we love, we grieve, we breathe, and we start again.
Now graduated, Max and Laura are making noise in Chicago with their first two singles ‘Back to You,’ and ‘Dream II.’ Collaborating with Max’s older brothers, Jonah and Zach Lazarus, as well as string arranger Scott Daniel, Family Junket is currently working towards releasing their first EP, and gearing up for the live performance we have all been missing this year.
