Le-Lilia Interview: Sensational Staffordshire underground gem shines on Lucii

With her classy vocals and genuine nature bursting with pure joy, we were fortunate to have a quick chat with the excellent 20-year-old Staffordshire singer-songwriter Le-Lilia. She leads us deep into her self-aware mentality and answers with purpose in this insightful interview.

Thank you for taking the time to speak to us today, Le-Lilia. Please guide us into a normal day for you and what keeps you busy?

Le-Lilia: My day starts with rehearsing new songs for my gigs and upcoming releases. I love to take time out of my day to sit and song-write as well as keeping up to date with my social media and interacting with people and my supporters. I also work part time as a sales representative.

You represent Staffordshire. Are you still based there or do you only visit family there?

Le-Lilia: Yes, I live in Burntwood, Staffordshire. This is where I do a lot of my performing.

You’re in charge of the entire UK music business for 24 hours only. What would you change and why?

Le-Lilia: I would like to see more opportunities for new and upcoming artists as it’s hard to get noticed and heard in this business. I would also love to see more festivals aimed at new artists so that they can showcase their talents.

Please tell us more about Lucii. What does this song mean to you and please let us know about your connection with Best Of London Music?

Le-Lilia: Lucii is all about a young girl who wants to be older before her time. This song means a lot to me as it’s my first release with (Bolm) Bestoflondon Music, I am so excited to be a part of this music company who gave me this opportunity when I signed to them at the end of August this year.

When you close your eyes and imagine being on stage, what does it feel like and may you kindly detail all the emotions?

Le-Lilia: I have been dreaming about being a singer since I was very young. It is my passion, therefore, if I was to perform on stage it would be very emotional as I have worked so hard for so many years to make this dream a reality.

If you could open for any artist in the world, who would it be?

Le-Lilia: Growing up, I was inspired by Adele and listening to her music encouraged me to start writing my own songs. Another great artist that I admire is James Arthur. I would love to be able to open for him because I am a huge fan of his music along with Lewis Capaldi. I love the stage presence and charisma of these artists and it would be a dream come true to perform alongside them.

Last of all, where can we find you live next or do you have any exciting projects lined up for 2023?

Le-Lilia: I’m really excited for 2023. I have many new songs that I will be looking to release. I will be continuing my local gigs as well as hopefully having the opportunity to perform at festivals and more nationwide performances.
