Sometimes people come into our lives at the moments we least expect. We cross paths with them by chance, but they stay in our lane by choice. That is the foundation of Courtney Graf and Lamont “Logic” Coleman of Broken Halleluyah.
On the day Graf met the person who would ultimately introduce her to her manager, she had just finished shooting with Nike in Los Angeles in a certified personal trainer capacity. With no explanation whatsoever, Graf had the urge to rent a car and visit Zuma Beach. It was there she made friends, played some songs, and was connected to her New York City-based manager. Through that manager, Graf and Coleman were introduced to one another.
While Graf was signed to Roc Nation as a songwriter and pumping out tune after tune, the BMI award-winning Coleman was wildly successful as a producer.
He produced platinum records for people like Wyclef Jean, Lil Wayne, Akon, Shakira, Justin Bieber, etc.
Despite his massively impressive production credits on other artists’ albums, Coleman still had bigger dreams of his own. Together, he and Graf moved to Nashville “on an epic dream chasing journey.”
Broken Halleluyah was formed six months ago, but the two artists have been making music together for about three years. The sound they have created is unlike anything you have heard before, combining their two sets of talents and qualities into one package.
The package they have created, which they describe as a “fusion” of the two of them as individuals, has afforded them great opportunities so far in the music industry. The duo was fortunate to perform atop Rockefeller Center in New York City, but that isn’t even their favorite gig to date.
Way Fm did a present collection give away for the troops last Christmas. We were asked to come perform for 3,000 people in a massive church. Not even our show at the top of Rockefeller Center could touch the energy in the room when they sang back the lyrics to our song “Stand.” For all the ways it struck home for our country, those families, our people… I couldn’t take the smile off my face.
Now, Broken Halleluyah, a self-sufficient pair that writes, produces, and plays guitar and piano on all its songs, is gearing up to release its debut full-length album. The offering has been a masterpiece in the making since 2016, as Graf and Coleman are intricately working to transcend genres and spread their message.
