Joey Lugassy

Joey Lugassy’s singer/songwriter journey has taken him everywhere from London’s Prog Rock underground to recently walking the red carpet at the Emmy’s after receiving two nominations for best song, to singing on a mountaintop sanctuary for Zen Master, Thich Nhat Hanh. Known for his wide spectrum of genres including rock, soul & sacred, Lugassy’s introspective, slightly quirky lyrics and evocative ballads make one think and feel deeply. Joey’s take on music for yoga fuses his original songs, Sanskrit mantras and uniquely interpreted covers from Bowie and Bon Iver to Peter Gabriel and Radiohead.

Other professional highlights include writing the song, “Today” for an Amnesty International video campaign and composing the rock opera, Adam, currently in pre-production. Based in Los Angeles, Joey Lugassy performs his original songs and leads kirtans all over the world and when stars align, together on retreats with internationally celebrated yoga teacher, poet, artist, and wife, Micheline Berry.
