Laszlo

From the age of 3, Laszlo’s childhood consisted of piano and violin lessons in addition to countless recitals. But that part of his upbringing paled in comparison to the demands of the church. His youth was dominated by a fundamentalist religion. Music – particularly rock music brought him some solace. His fondness for guitar playing began in high school. Despite not having any money for his own guitar, he eventually got one from his brother often with only 4 or 5 strings.

The very first CD Laszlo purchased was “Farewell to Kings” by Rush. He would hide the CD under his bed and listened to the album with his ear pressed against the speaker so no one could hear. His parents eventually acquiesced to his guitar playing and his love for rock music. It was at that time he learned his guitar chops, going over each song until he got it right. By the end of high school, the church became the focus of his life, but he always made time to practice and improve his guitar playing.

Eventually, he came to disagree with the church’s ideology and this came with drastic consequences. He was shunned by family and friends. Still trying to grasp his new reality, sadness, devastation and resentment consumed him. At that point, music took centre stage. Since then, Laszlo has found songwriting to be a cathartic and healing outlet. Much of his songs reflect his unique experiences growing up and the events that unfolded when he left the movement. With his music, Laszlo hopes the joy, sorrow and healing will resonate with listeners. Having journeyed this far, his life has only begun. “Still Rock n’ Roll”!

Laszlo is gearing up for the release of his summer EP titled A LOT OF LIFE TO LIVE.


Dès l’âge de 3 ans, l’enfance de Laszlo a consisté en leçons de piano et de violon en plus d’innombrables récitals. La musique, en particulier le rock, lui a apporté du réconfort. Son goût pour la guitare a commencé au lycée. Bien qu’il n’ait pas d’argent pour sa propre guitare, il en a finalement obtenu un de son frère souvent avec seulement 4 ou 5 cordes.

Le tout premier CD acheté par Laszlo était “Farewell To Kings” de Rush. Il cacherait le CD sous son lit et écoutait l’album avec l’oreille pressée contre le haut-parleur pour que personne ne puisse entendre. À la fin du lycée, l’église est devenue le centre de sa vie, mais il a toujours pris le temps de pratiquer et d’améliorer son jeu de guitare.

Finalement, il est venu à être en désaccord avec l’idéologie de son église et cela a eu des conséquences dramatiques. Il a été évité par sa famille et ses amis. Essayant toujours de saisir sa nouvelle réalité, la tristesse, la dévastation et le ressentiment le consumaient. À ce moment-là, la musique occupait le devant de la scène. Depuis lors, Laszlo a trouvé que l’écriture de chansons était un exutoire cathartique et curatif. Une grande partie de ses chansons reflètent ses expériences uniques en grandissant et les événements qui se sont déroulés lorsqu’il a quitté le mouvement. Avec sa musique, Laszlo espère que la joie, la douleur et la guérison résonneront auprès des auditeurs. Ayant voyagé aussi loin, sa vie ne fait que commencer. “Still Rock n”Roll”!

Laszlo se prépare pour la sortie de son EP d’été intitulé A LOT OF LIFE TO LIVE.
