Lapland – Lapland
Lapland is the moniker for the music of singer/songwriter Josh Mease. Born in a tiny half-bedroom in Brooklyn, Mease has always found comfort in the solitude of his own thoughts, often preferring the landscapes within his mind’s eye over the bustle of the city that surrounds him.
Lapland’s debut album showcases Mease’s knack for mixing various genres. One can hear the effect of the myriad of music styles and genres that have shaped Lapland – Early synth pioneers of the 60s and 70s, French Impressionists like Ravel and Debussy, and 1970s staples like Fleetwood Mac.
