LÈON: Listen to Her Now

During quarantine, one of my favorite things has been exploring music, both new and old; making some killer playlists (or at least that is what I think); and finding some new artists to obsess about! I want to introduce you all to an old obsession turned new, Ms. LÈON herself. Hopefully you are as swept away by her immaculate vocals and genius songs as I was.

From there, she launched a full music career with two full albums and several Eps and singles. LÈON has a voice that is an amazing mix of Adele, Amy Winehouse and Lorde all tied in one. Her indie pop music paints stories of heartbreak, pain and lost love. Though the messages may seem far from inviting, her songs have a way of transporting you to a scene out of Euphoria or Perks of Being a Wallflower; the sort of late night, city lights, car drive, hair in your face feeling. Like you are on top of the world as you stick your ring coated finger out of the rolled down car window.

What I love about her music is the perfect blend of instrumental from the pianos and violins that give a dreamy and mystic feeling, an infectious rhythm that you cannot help but dance and a voice that is so clear and sweet it sends shivers down your spine.
