LORD & LADY is an acoustic-based songwriting duo from Los Angeles, combining the talents of Scott Oatley and Rachel Panchal. The two first met in a cowriting session, and it wasn’t long before they realized that their blend of styles was something quite special.
Already deemed “a sweeter Civil Wars”, Lord & Lady carefully craft their songs to echo the heartbreaks and complexities of relationships that so many come to experience, weaving in a very personal perspective along the way. Their raw expression and poignant lyrics – touching on everything from wanting to hold on, to learning how to let go – are sure to strike an honest, vulnerable chord with listeners.
Their debut single, “A Little Longer”, won First Prize for Best Group/Duo in the International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA) as well as Best Song of the Month on the online music magazine, SongwriterUniverse. More recently, the song earned them Semi-Finalist recognition in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC). Their music has also had feature spotlights on such platforms as Noisetrade (New + Notable Artist) and Wix.com (Opening Act YouTube campaign for Wix Music).
Both Scott and Rachel are also working vocalists whose combined credits include Glee, High School Musical, Pitch Perfect, RHCP, Maroon 5, among many others.
Lord & Lady is an unsigned, independent band.
