Lazarus J. Finn (Lazo) began his music career at 15 years of age with a band called Black Blood, whose very first album charted #2 and received extensive airplay in the Caribbean. Soon after immigrating to Canada, Lazo formed his own band, Unity, to showcase his original compositions. Upon relocating to Toronto, ON, he created Lazo Reggae in Toronto, and released the well-received recording, “Satisfaction Guaranteed.” Lazo subsequently produced two solo CDs, “Something Real” and “Impetus,” for RAS records in Washington, DC. He was the first Canadian artist signed to the label.
Lazo tours tirelessly throughout the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean. His list of international venues and festivals is ever growing, such as Brazil’s Carnaval de Salvador, El Salvador, Argentina, and more. In 2010, he toured the United States and South America as a member of the world-renowned Wailers. The group was Bob Marley’s original backup band, featuring Aston “Family-Man” Barrett on bass, and the legendary Keith Sterling on keys. The South American leg of the tour included African Reggae Star, Alpha Blondie.
Additionally, Lazo fronts for Craig Martin’s Classic Albums Live: Bob Marley – Legend. He performed at venues such as Hard Rock Cafe, House of Blues, and many theatres across the US and Canada. Craig recently commented to a fan, “Lazo has always been an exception to the rule- I can’t control him, and yet I can’t see me doing the show without him.”
