Leeza (Elizabeth Pitchkhdze) is an LA-based singer-songwriter from Moscow, Russia. Not too long ago, she released a lovely electro-dance single, titled, “Fake Happiness.”
Leeza – “Fake Happiness” single
“I wanted the song to make you feel like you’re drunk and sad at a party but relieved to not be alone because at least you’re out and living. The arrangement started with some basic drum samples Jordan Sweet (producer) had, and I laid down some synths. Then we found this bass that we thought sounded so cool. After that, it was like the song made itself. Also, ‘Fake Happiness’ was my way of adding some fun to a bad day. Sometimes everything’s sh*t and there’s not a lot left to do but have a good time anyway and worry about everything else later.” – Leeza explained
Fake Happiness, written from Leeza’s personal experience with loneliness, is one of the artist’s most reflective songs to date. The tune was originally inspired by Kacey Musgraves’ “Cherry Blossom” single, and mixes in elements reminiscent of The Weeknd’s “After Hours” album.
‘Fake Happiness’ also contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with retro-pop, synth-wave, and electro-dance elements. Furthermore, “Fake Happiness” is the title track of Leeza’s upcoming EP, due for release this year.
“I like being open and vulnerable. I believe the more vulnerable artists and creators are, the more they give a platform for someone else to feel comfortable in their own skin. I write pop songs and melodies, but my lyrics are always personal and not sugar-coated.” – Leeza explained
Leeza moved to the United States at the age of 17. She attended Berklee College of Music, where she went from knowing very little music and composition to finding her passion in songwriting and gaining an interest in music theory. Using her freshly acquired skills, Leeza formed a band with her fellow classmates and performed around Boston and Cambridge.
After graduating from Berklee College of Music, Leeza moved to Los Angeles, where her pop-star plan got derailed by the pandemic. As the entire nation shut down, Leeza focused on her artistry, and released her debut solo single, “Guilty.” Later, she connected with Jordan Sweet (Berklee alumni/producer), and they began working on Leeza’s “Fake Happiness” EP.
