Leyla Blue (Island)
2/4/20

WHAT IT IS: The buzz around singer/songwriter Leyla Blue is building following the 2019 release of her debut EP, Songs for Boys That Didn’t Text Me Back. The 20-year-old Manhattan native is the offspring of two fashion photographers and attended the Clive Davis School of Recorded Music. Her enigmatic brand of pop, laced with throwback R&B vibes, features clever melodies and introspective lyrics. A self-proclaimed “sad bitch/bad bitch,” this big-voiced newcomer makes music filled with rawness and honesty.
