|Biography: If you want to hear what’s been missing, then Lei Row is your girl!Lei Row is an up-and-coming singer/songwriter/vocal producer originally from Harrisburg, PA. She has a familiar story on how she got started. She’s been singing since she was a little girl and her main foundation and influences come from growing up in the church. During her teenage years, Lei Row was a part of an R&B girl group called “Untitled” who were the protege group of a then popular R&B male group “Tre Sons.” Through this experience, Lei Row was introduced to the arts of song-writing and vocal production and hasn’t stopped since!
Through the years, Lei Row has performed in different concerts, musical plays, and talent showcases. Back in 2006, Lei Row would perform in the Wednesday Night showcases at the renowned Philadelphia Old City music and dance club “Five Spot.” Lei Row and the live house band rocked out together, keeping the crowd moving! Inspired by consistent positive feedback and reviews from audience members, Lei Row realized that it was time to take all of her musical talents to an even higher level. Since then, she has worked with several artists, writers, and producers in New York City, Miami, the DC-Maryland-Virginia area, Harrisburg, Lancaster, and Philadelphia: writing, singing, vocal producing, and/or performing.
Currently, Lei Row is a “featured” singer/songwriter in the Bad Boy Jack Knight Songwriting Academy under the very talented Bad Boy super producer/singer/songwriter/hitmaker Jack Knight. Jack Knight has written and produced for artists/musical inspirations such as Faith Evans, P. Diddy, Keyshia Cole, Christina Aguilera, Tamia, and Carl Thomas, just to name a few.
Lei Row is also hard at work on her first album entitled “Lei Row presnents…EuPhOrIa.” Her single “In Love Again” was recently featured on NYC’s HOT 97 “Twitter Unsigned Tuesday” hosted by J. Medina. She was also a finalist in the Melanie Fiona & Loud.com singer-remix contest where contestants had to write and demo an original piece to Ms. Fiona’s (song) “It Kills Me” instrumental. Lei Row has also been recognized as a talented up-and-coming singer/song-writer by “Suavv Magazine” and “Sound-Savvy: The Community for True Fans of Real Music.” She was also the November 2009 “Artist of the Month” on urban media info station “Nonstopinfo.com.”
Lei Row’s album is scheduled to be out in early 2010, so please be on the look out! With the new album 90% complete, she’s already looking forward to networking and collaborating even more with other singers, writers, producers, rappers, and poets for future projects.
Lei Row is very inspired by musical artists like Chaka Khan, Michael and Janet Jackson, Eric Clapton, Prince, Whitney Houston, Faith Evans, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill, Brandy, Monica, Keyshia Cole, Beyonce, Pink, The Clark Sisters, Kim Burrell, Phyllis Hyman, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Donny and Lalah Hathaway, Luther Vandross, The Notorious BIG, Tupac, Sarah Vaughan, and Billie Holiday just to name a few.
Although R&B, Gospel, and Pop are her musical backbones, she is versatile and does not confine her taste or projects to one genre…hip-hop, jazz, rock, country, classical, opera, reggae, latin, electronic: she studies, loves, embraces, and incorporates it all.
