Lu’s breathy, jazzy tones rest beautifully between soul and R&B. The artist grew up in a home filled with music, listening to everything from the classic soul/jazz maestros of the ‘50s and ’60s, like Nina Simone and Sam Cooke, to noughties Hip hop, RnB and soul outfits such as Outkast, Eminem, Rihanna and Amy Winehouse, this is where her love for songwriting and melody truly began.
Since then, her contemporary influences have aligned with the times, citing Little Simz, Anderson Paak, Maverick Sabre and the Blue Note Re: imagined album as huge sources of inspiration.
The young artist recently graduated from the London branch of the BIMM Institute (British and Irish Modern Music Institute) and set to work on her debut EP ‘Notes to self’. Her debut single was supported online by the likes of Clash, Earmilk and Headliner Magazine to name but a few.
