Lorenzo Wood is a musician, songwriter, producer, and vocalist from the San Francisco area now based in LA. His heartfelt, honest lyrics present a personal perspective of friendships, relationships, and coming of age in the modern era of social media. His songs, rooted in the pop genre, borrow from a number of different musical styles to create a distinctive mix of real instruments and electronic sounds.

In addition to recording and producing songs and videos in his home studio, Lorenzo enjoys taking music to the stage. With a skillset in music performance technology, he puts together unique, intricate live setups that make his performances stand out.

Lorenzo lists Maroon 5, U2, Shawn Mendes, Owl City, and Charlie Puth as his initial musical influences. But now he feels his style resembles more that of artists like Bazzi, Julia Michaels, Post Malone, Machine Gun Kelly and Jonas Brothers.

Lorenzo has been performing and recording his songs since a young age. At age 13, he discovered busking, and has been performing primarily at street festivals in the San Francisco Bay Area every summer/fall until 2020.

In 2018, while releasing his first EP at the age of 15, he put together and hired a band to play the newly released songs with him on stage. He performed again 2019 with a new lineup.

Lorenzo has also performed as a member of several local bands. Recently he has supported Kat Van Morgan, Saint Benjamin, and others, playing whatever instruments were needed.

For many of his own performances and those of others, Lorenzo coordinates and runs live sound, being knowledgeable and experienced with most audio and musical equipment.

Production & Projects

LONELY NIGHTS

Playing on the way that pop music accumulates elements from its surroundings, we get a nice synthesis of laid-back hip-hop grooves with the more ferocious strumming of a punk lineage. Wood dreams about the person he’ll meet who will light up his life, but ultimately ends up drinking Modelo and pouring another shot while asking himself, “Am I an addict yet?”.
It is a perfect piece of alternative rock, which has a lot of atmosphere and its style will catch your attention just by running the first minute.

Drown

This song gave me the most relieving cry session. Somehow he managed to convey all the conflicting thoughts and feelings I had during my first relationship and I finally feel so understood …
We all know that great music is written based on personal experiences and real emotions, especially the breakup song theme. … Drown uses a fresh perspective from the person who has to do the breaking up and the horrific anxiety that ending a relationship causes…

More Than Friends

An uplifting pop song about investing wholeheartedly in a relationship and taking it from friendship to something more. Everything written and produced by the singer and you also find spice with saxophone in the song. So very charming.
’More Than Friends’ is a soft Electro Pop track with a brief interlude of sultry saxophone to add to the musical layers and production. The emotion of the lyrics is real, and Wood’s performance is genuine as you can feel the plaintive hope in every word.

Still Need Love

The first of several singles that I released in Spring 2020. The start of my new era of music with a fiery beat and smooth saxophone.

Originally meant to be a song about depression and heartbreak, it gains new meaning during the lonely times of social distancing and being stuck at home in the early days of COVID-19.

Jacket - EP

It's about how your friends need to support you, even if they don't understand what you're going through.

This is an EP with four versions of the same song! The original (in the video here), a remix by Aendru, a rock version, and an acoustic-driven duet with Kaia.
