A singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with a distinctive sound that combines elements of folk-pop, indie rock, and pop-soul, Lila Dupont released her first three singles in 2022. Teaming up with Grammy-winning producer Scott Jacoby, her 2022 releases have already garnered over a million streams. Penned during the height of the pandemic when she was 18 years old, Dupont’s debut songs were emblematic of a generation struggling with alienation and anxiety.
Citing a wide range of influences that includes Julia Jacklin, Sarah Kinsley and Big Thief, the New York native has been penning songs since she was in middle school. Now living in the UK, and still writing prolifically, she has teamed up once again with Jacoby on three new singles which will be released this spring, beginning with “Legal in England”, a triumphal ballad dealing with addiction in relationships.
As Wonderland Magazine writes, “Dissecting difficult topics such as mental health, loneliness and emotional turmoil, it would appear that the 19-year-old artist is not afraid to tackle the complex of an adult psyche- making her a matured artist from the off. With an admirable openness and tenacity to create relatable art, Lila proves herself a force to be reckoned with in the coming year.”
