LEIO is an up-and-coming London-based singer-songwriter from a small fishing village on the South Coast of England. Not too long ago, she released a music video for her heartfelt debut single, entitled, “342”.
LEIO – “342” music video
“I was caught up in something incredibly beautiful but also incredibly tragic and I wanted to write a song that embodied both. ‘342’ is whatever it means to you—a time and a place where a relationship is perfect but outside of that, it can’t exist. That’s what we tried to do with the video. Also, it needed to feel claustrophobic, magic, and sad all in one.” – LEIO
The inspiration for “342” happened at 5 AM inside an Uber and offers listeners an insight into the world of LEIO. Also, the song allows listeners to find themselves and feel hope.
‘342’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and soothing melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses luxurious instrumentation scented with a warm commercial pop aroma.
“The little girl that grew up listening to the stories from her parents’ record player, learned to understand and channel her own emotions through the language of music and the results speak for themselves.”
LEIO is a name you should remember and an exciting new artist to watch. Her name stands for “Learning Everything In Order”—a reflection of her personal journey.
The charismatic newcomer grew up in an evangelical church, where she was influenced by gospel music. Also, additional musical influences include Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill, and Christine Aguilera.
At the age of 18, LEIO left school and headed to America. With the help of a U.S. manager, she worked her way across the country over a 5-year-span from L.A. to Nashville and Atlanta to New York.
