ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: LUNA LIE LOT
“Music is the pathway through my shyness. Art is the key to expressing my passion.”
Born in Swansea, a city she loves, Luna is set to make a splash on both the local and national music scene.
Her distinctive musical style is sometimes described as an arresting crossover of Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez and Victoria Justice, although it is very much still her own sound.
Having been writing and self-recording for the early part of her career, her recent visits to a recording studio have allowed her to add new depth and maturity to her music.
While staunchly unafraid to try new things in the studio, Luna has struggled to overcome her shyness and lack of confidence in everyday life.
Having really found her voice in the last couple of years, Luna is now using her music as a gateway to reach new people and build relationships.
She hopes that her music and art not only continue to help her develop on a personal level, but also that it will inspire the next generation of artists who follow on behind.
Her music is perfectly complimented by her forays into visual art too (be sure to check out @lunalielot on Instagram).
As with her music, Luna has a very distinctive and personal “glitch art” style but is still hesitant to show herself to the public, often choosing to obscure her own face.
While on the surface it's a song about relationship breakdown, it reflects her journey so far, expressing previous disappointments and the hope she feels for the future that often comes as a result of making difficult decisions.
Luna Lie Lot is a prodigious talent; as she continues to emerge from her shell, so her music and art continue to bloom. Be sure to come along for the journey.
Luna, tell us a little more about how you got into music.
I got into music because I was super shy but wanted to break my lack of confidence.
I'm still shy tho, so I cover up my face with my digital art style.
Your music's vibe and aesthetic is so unique! What was the creative process behind your super different sound & look?
Well, I wanted to tell a story about myself, something that people can connect to.
I had gone through some hardships, but now I'm picking myself up.
So I wanted a darker/serious sound to my music.
Also, I wanted to carry my art aesthetic over to my music.
I started with art before music.
What would you say to aspiring artists who look up to your music?
I would say to aspiring artists , “Music is the pathway through my shyness and art is the key to expressing my passion".
If I can do it with no face, anybody can!
Do you have anything new or upcoming we can expect to see from you?
I have a new single coming out on the 16th of October and it's called, "Don't Hang onto Me".
