Hey LHĒON, thanks for taking the time to talk to us today. Could you tell us something about yourself that nobody knows?
Hmm..that’s a tricky one – I’m quite transparent and open about myself. Maybe, that I am actually exceptionally shy and an introvert…but I’ve managed to hide this really well haha! I trick myself into being outgoing and extroverted because that makes it much easier to move forward, meet new people and experience new things. Although scary, it has totally worked for me.
What influences have gone into your sound recently?
I’ve been listening a lot to NAO, H.E.R. and Anderson .Paak! Love the relentless rhythms and the mix of soul, r&b and electronic influences. I also love the way they write and how their storytelling flows. It’s definitely things I’ve subconsciously incorporated in my writing!
What are you currently working on?
I will be releasing my follow up EP “Full Disclosure pt. II” in the beginning of May. I’m also currently working on my first full length album, been writing a lot and trying a different way of creating this next project in the studio – which has so far been really fun and exciting!
What are your plans the year ahead?
2020 taught me to take it one day at a time, and also to focus on the things I can control, which is myself. I’ve been writing a lot recently, which was hard during the harshest lockdown for me. I’m glad I found my way back. So this year I want to finish my album, and I’m also planning my first tour of Australia. As soon as the world opens up again, I also want to tour in the UK and Scandinavia!
Any top tips for getting through this difficult time?
Check in on your daily form, listen to what your mind and body needs. Drink water, get some fresh air and really breathe it in. Do things that make you happy – whenever you get the chance. Life is too short to waste time on not taking care of yourself and doing what makes you smile!
