Lara Price

A Little Goes A Long Way…
Price was born in the war torn country of Vietnam in 1975. Abandoned at birth 
Price became a part of the controversial Operation Baby Lift, the mass 
evacuation of orphans from South Vietnam to the United States. Her journey out 
of Vietnam to her new home quickly turned into a tragedy when the C-5 Galaxy 
airplane carrying the precious cargo crashed shortly after take off, killing 
half the occupants on board. Lara Price is a survivor.
Price discovered the power of music at the tender age of 6, when she started 
taking piano lessons in England with legendary 80’s music innovator Howard 
Jones. At the age of 12 she found her singing voice. Price was influenced and 
encouraged by her junior high and high school choir teacher, Blake Olmstead. She 
continued her vocal studies operatically with Dr. Lynn Berg at BSU. She arrived 
in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1997 to pursue her dream of singing in a band. 
By 1998, Price began running her own blues jam at JJ’s Blues in San Jose, and 
was featured in an inspiring article about blues jams in the September issue of 
the Blues Revue Magazine.
The journey of Lara’s blues band (The Lara Price Band) includes tours across the 
United States and China. It also includes five CD’s that Price has produced, 
co-written, and is featured playing drums, guitar, and back up vocals. Lara and 
her band have shared the bill with R&B legends, Etta James, James Brown, Buddy 
Guy, Leon Russell and many more.
Like many full time musicians, Lara fronts and leads several musical projects: 
Lara Unplugged, an acoustic duo; Velvet Plum, a popular top 40’s party band, The 
Lara Price Band, a rootsy, rockin’ blues band and the Lara Price Blues Revue a 
fantastic 10 piece R&B show band.
She’s an All American singer with a sultry stage presence and a voice that 
demands your attention- smoky, lonely, sexy, and powerful. It’s no wonder her 
music transcends the blues and crosses a line into music that is unequivocally 
superb.
