Swiss songstress LAGIOIA specialises in wholesome RnB with authenticity running through its veins. Soulful, striking and sparse in its instrumentation, Lord is the newest string to LAGIOIA’s bow.
Discussing the release LAGIOIA reveals: “I’ve always been creating music and using songwriting as a way of self-therapy to express inner conflicts and to find resolutions. Lord was created about 2 years ago, when I was feeling quite lost, not knowing what to do in my life and overthinking every single thing. Out of frustration, I sat down once again with my guitar trying to feel better while singing how I feel. The lyrics came quite quickly and helped me heal. For me, music had always the impact of making me feel better and safe when I felt down. With Lord I hope that I can help my fans and listeners who are struggling with anything in their life and make them feel more embraced. The emotions and topics discussed in Lord, resemble a journey from feeling lost and fearful to finding hope and self love. We can be quite hard on ourselves and with the cover of Lord, which writes “be gentle to your soul”, I wanted an action and resolution, how you can help yourself be better and feel better, when you’re at this low point of your life.”
Inspired by the likes of Erykah Badu, Alicia Keys and her parents funk records, LAGIOIA is one to watch for 2020, with a fresh take on contemporary RnB that strips it right down to the bone.
