Lea is well known for her relatable heart-felt pop anthems, her music focusing on issues of youth, love, heartache and all that is in between. Her brand new single ‘Happier’ takes Lea into a more mature and expressive era.
About the song Lea explains ‘Happier is a super personal song for me written from my own experiences with males in my life – the song is deeply emotional and describes a relationship that is now gone from my life and ended in heartache. It wasn’t written during the angry, heartbroken stage after a relationship ends. It was the moment I realised I was stronger without that person in my life – I felt freedom, excitement and empowerment. ‘
The last two years have been huge success for a practically unknown artist, releasing her debut EP, ‘Older’ being certified Platinum, ‘A Million Goodbyes’ featured in Love Island, opening for Picture This across multiple shows and selling out her own two headline shows in the Academy, Dublin. The list of incredible successes go on …
After a busy two years, Lea took some time out to do some writing sessions in London and Sweden, experimenting with new sounds. Discovering who she wanted to be as an artist, leaning away from the light pop of her past releases, which represented the time she was in when they came out but now having some more life experiences post Covid, and being influenced by artists she grew up listening to – Avril Lavigne, Taylor Swift, Sinead O Connor, Paramore, P!nk, Lady GaGa, Catfish and the bottlemen and The Killers. Artists she relates and looks up to with their incredible story-telling with pop-rock production in all their music.
‘Happier’ was written with talented writers Conor O’Donohoe, Aiden Halliday and Joseph Wander and was sent off to Canada to be produced by Jacob Bitove.
