Rising from Hollywood amidst other popular female pop artists, Lea Marie is making a name for herself in her own way as she shows the world her talent through upbeat and catchy songs.
Originally from Los Angeles, California, Lea Marie first made her music industry debut in 2008 at the age of 15 when she was voted the “#1 Pop Demo” from Music Connection Magazine. Since proving herself as a true singer/songwriter, she has set the bar even higher for herself and has no plans of lowering those expectations.
As a multi-dimensional artist who is “self-developed,” has the creative ability to write her own songs, play all of her music’s piano tracks and sings every harmony, Lea Marie is basically the entire package. Jason Blume, an industry veteran and professional songwriter, has been quoted saying “Lea Marie’s got it all – the voice, the songs and the look. I’ve worked with countless songwriters and have rarely found any who shows as much talent and promise.”
With her debut EP released on May 22, 2012, this six-song album titled “Undercover Lover” is definitely going to bring her name to pop-princess status. Lea Marie has described her music as “Ma-Gaga,” which is a cross between Madonna and Lady Gaga, but there is also an undeniable mixture of influential sounds such as Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry and Christina Perri that are blended throughout. “Undercover Lover” contains songs with party-worthy dance hits that have tongue-in-cheek lyrics, songs with up-beat tempos that both captivate listeners and makes them laugh with her double entendres and catchy beats, and even a ballad that is heartfelt, relatable and showcases her singer/songwriter and piano abilities.
After composing over 200 of her own original pop tracks on piano to date, her love of pop music definitely shows through in her songs. When asked to describe her talent, Lea Marie has been quoted saying “Song writing is something that came naturally to me. It's like song writing would be the sun, with all the planets revolving around it. Song writing is the center of my universe.” John Braheny, author of “The Craft and Business of Songwriting,” has said “Lea Marie’s talent and work ethic put her at the top of my list of singer/songwriters most likely to succeed. Her pop music has developed into a dynamic blend of infectious pop tunes, catchy hooks and beats for edgy ear candy with powerful storytelling lyrics.”
With plenty of positive fan feedback via social media and radio stations, Lea Marie’s album “Undercover Lover” is now available for purchase through iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon.
