''KNOWN FOR HER CONTAGIOUS BLEND OF INDIE-POP MEETS FUNK AND SOUL, LUAN MEI ISN’T FOLLOWING ANY RULEBOOK. ENERGETIC AND FUELLED WITH CHARM, YOU CAN FEEL THIS SONGWRITER’S STUNNING PRESENCE FROM THE GET-GO''
LUAN MEI is an independent singer-songwriter and guitarist from Madrid based in Brighton. They started making music at a very young age as a way of understanding and expressing emotions through their synaesthetic conception of the world. Feeling colours for people, moments, and sounds creates a whole universe filled up with metaphors and similes in their lyrics.
Combining different genres like indie, pop, funk, and soul as their natural way of creating music, Luan has the power of bringing the audience inside their vibrant and rhythmic style of playing: their fingerstyle guitar work adds a very rhythmic edge to their writing, which beautifully underpins their catchy melodies. Their unique voice and energy when playing challenge anybody to remain indifferent.
Luan released their debut single 'Elements' in 2019, which caught everyone's attention and was featured on BBC Radio, Radio Reverb, and Platform B Radio. In June 2020, Pride month, they brought a different story to the industry with their new single 'Yellow', a tune about queer love through art and synaesthesia. In February 2021, Luan collaborated with the producer Tiiva, releasing their remix of 'Yellow'.
