Occasionally an artist is discovered when no one else is watching, and the fans get the opportunity to hold an intimate secret. This well-kept secret has been California artist Lena Fayre. At only 18-years old, her talent goes far beyond her years, and she sings and writes with a genuine spirit and a fresh voice. There is a dark yet ethereal quality to her songwriting that experiments with different instrumentation. She is quiet and delicate, yet sings from a place of determination and fearlessness. From R&B to electro-pop to stark acoustic ballads, Lena has a singular voice.
Lena is a Los Angeles native, and has been performing since her early teen years. She regularly performs in the LA area at Hotel Cafe, The Satellite, Echoplex, Bootleg, Amplyfi, The Troubadour, Sunset Marquis, and Los Globos. Over the last few years she has amassed millions of video views/streams on YouTube and Spotify, and was named an ‘Artist to Watch’ by Rolling Stone in 2014. Lena self-released her debut EP in 2013 and last year self-released her first album, titled "OKO," which has already racked up over 2.5 Million streams on Spotify, featuring the song “Everybody’s In,” which has over 1 million streams. No small feat for an artist doing things on their own.
Moments, elusive and stagnant,
grown through sound, visuals, echolalia.
Music, the mirror – words of wound and remedy.
This is refraction.
Likenesses, images, distortion.
Generation Now, Generation New.
A child thumbing a flower as it pricks a hole.
Friction as past and future coalesce.
These are my stories.
