LÉON is outstanding. I have had the opportunity to see her perform twice so far – and the third time is coming up in a week or so. That being said, the rising Swedish pop star has released a third EP and her second in 2017. The Surround Me EP is a 4-song masterpiece that drives home her stunning vocal abilities and poetic, heartfelt lyrics. This hopeful, love-inspired EP is a testament to LÉON‘s hit making ability. Her style, which is like a blend between Carole King, Adele and Ellie Goulding, is fun, energetic and beaming with confidence.
And her confidence produces some of the most sensual, intimate songs. The first song off the new EP, “No Goodbyes”, is a heartbreaker of a track. It is a bit depressing to start off, but it sets the style and mood of being epic and grandiose. The title track, “Surround Me”, is a killer blues club hit that is designed to get the body moving and getting close to someone for the evening. Her raspy, honey-smoked vocals are tinged with a sweetness that draws out all of emotions from her tender, engaging lyrics.
There is a small chance that you will hear LÉON in the clubs, but the Swedish sensation is talent of the first order. There are so few vocalists out there with the complete package that LÉON possesses. Her enchanting personality, clean, crisp songwriting and the vocal chops to back it all up. I am sure I have said this before, but LÉON is the next superstar.
