3734 W Belmont Ave, Chicago, IL 60618, USA

LASKA based out of Eau Claire, WI and Minneapolis, MN provide the perfect soundtrack for embracing the beauty in pain. Songwriting sisters Hannah, Becca and Mookie weave influences of Alternative, Americana and Desert Rock with raw emotion in their songs. They are all confident vocalists knowing what each will bring to the table to sing lead, but also support one another with beautifully hard-hitting harmonies. Topping off the harmonic sheen is an instrumental arsenal including violin, guitar, banjo, mandolin and ukulele. Combine this with an un- apologetic rhythm section in tow and the whole of this band is far greater than the sum of its parts.
