About the Artist: Levina Lye
Born in one of the liveliest boroughs of New York City, The Bronx, Levina Lye has been singing since the age of three and was presented with many awards at a young age. When her parents relocated her to a more peaceful setting in Upstate New York, the newfound silence helped her to cultivate feelings of loneliness, standing out, and being a rebel into poetry which would later become songs on her two EPs: Pieces of Me and More of Me.
She has covered songs by a wide array of artists to 6lack, Adele, Drake, Rihanna, The Weeknd, and more, as a way to sway the world over to her own poetic songs. Her covers became known as The Emo Queen Remix’s, as she began to own every song she took on. Levina Lye’s rendition of “Wicked Games” by The Weeknd spread like wildfire and was even banned in Germany for a bit!
Her first EP Pieces Of Me has been critically acclaimed by several members of the press such as The Urban Daily, Soul Train, All Hip Hop, The Hype Magazine, Swurv Radio, and many more through the years. Her singles “Fade Away” and “Fall” were international successes. “Fall” charted number four on the Coca Cola countdown in Africa.
Writing for me has always and will always be how I express myself as a human being. Those who truly know me know that I am music, I literally live and breathe it. It is a piece of my soul, hence why my first project is titled Pieces of Me and my second More of Me. Every song that I write is a very personal piece of myself that I give away to the people who support me
Levina Lye is a real artist, a true musician if you will. October of last year she released her second EP More Of Me which is taking the world by storm. On this EP she unleashed some harsh truths on her single “Your Song”,
and personal thoughts that she felt her supporters needed to know. Everything she does is for them and to let them know that as they grow, she grows alongside them, truly showing that she is human in every sense of the word.
