Lara Somogyi is a Los Angeles-based harpist and solo artist. Using electronics, looper

and effects pedals, she developed a unique sound that is inspiring a movement as she

forges a new artistic identity for the harp.

Lara is a recent graduate from the Royal Academy of Music in London, and in addition

to being a composer-performer, she also is an active session harpist — recording in a

wide range of genres for film and TV from studio sessions with the London Symphony

Orchestra to pop records with Rufus Wainwright and Mark Ronson. She recently was

brought to Hans Zimmer’s Bleeding Fingers studio specifically for her sound to compose

and improvise material for the score to Blue Planet II, featuring Radiohead. As an active

live artist, Lara is called upon for her unique combination of electroacoustic harp and

effects pedals as well as her improvisation and compositional arrangements, recently

performing live with artists such as Anderson .Paak, Bazzi and Josh Groban.

Lara’s compositions and live performances have been featured in Apple Music’s Up

Next, an upcoming film for Lionsgate, and she is an ongoing featured performer at

Google X for their women in technology and innovation initiative. Lara is currently

writing and recording her debut album of original music,
