TWOFEW began as a side project when Michael Lazar, founder of the popular Phoenix rock outfit, Complicate/Simple, picked up the piano again. Following a 20 year hiatus, Michael spent a few years shaking the dust off on his piano licks and working on developing new music. When his band, Complicate/Simple, suddenly lost their bassist, Michael’s wife stepped in to fill the shoes for a few months. Following the transition to a new bass player, the Lazar duo formed TWOFEW as a Vocal/Piano/Bass outfit.
Shortly after, they added Michael’s brother, David, to the group on lead guitar. After composing their debut single, “On The Run,” the band had finally found its purpose and direction. They immediately booked studio sessions to record the song and produce the music video, releasing it just 6 weeks later. 5 weeks after that, the group dropped another single and music video, "Dreamin,'" which has received raving reviews and has captured them a dedicated fan base.
In July, 2021, the band added John Grigsby as their drummer -- he comes with years of National touring experience and related advanced music recording and performing degrees. Later in July, they also added Mike Libby as an additional guitarist. The group has plans to release a future single called "Fighting For" in Fall of 2021 with many more songs and an LP slated in the immediate future.
