Efraim Leo is ready to steal the hearts of a generation. The 22 year-old Stockholm native reveals his new single Talk To Me, the perfect introduction to his infectious and vibrant brand of pop songcraft.
Talk To Me deals with the aftermath of a relationship, its glorious melodies concealing the anguish behind the lyrics. “It’s about how you really loved a girl, but she’s not talking to you anymore” explains Efraim “It’s so tough dealing with that, when you don’t want to be enemies”
Born into a family of music-lovers, Efraim started out on a heady diet of jazz (his Grandfather performed as part of a jazz band) and Bob Dylan. He started to teach himself to play the guitar from the age of 13, before starting to write songs at 15.
Last summer Efraim took to the stage again in Sweden, playing some huge shows including Lollapalooza, Stockholm Pride and Summerburst festival. “Playing live will always be what I’m all about; that’s what’s really important to me. I used to want to do acoustic sets – but as my music has evolved, so have my live performances and now I can’t wait to get out on tour again.”
Talk To Me is the first song to be taken from Efraim’s forthcoming EP Timing.
