Too punk for the folk scene, and too folk for the punks, Lach is a poet, storyteller, raconteur and songwriter – “a face-ache funny, beat-punk-unplugged joy!” (The Guardian).Renowned as the mastermind of the New York anti-folk scene which spawned Beck, Regina Spector, The Moldy Peaches and so many more, Lach is a New York institution and “what the East Village used to be all about. He’s a gruff-and-tough punk turned poet with a heart of gold.” (Timeout New York)

“Lach is incredibly bright, he’s influential, he’s funny, he’s smart, and he’s got his own, sort of, counter-culture charm. A very intelligent songwriter, funny, poetic. He became part of New York folklore.”-Suzanne Vega

“Lach is a star! More Woody Allen than Woody Guthrie and a raised middle finger to the folk purists.”-NME
