In terms of sound, she has a wide-eyed, innocent coo similar to Colbie Caillat. But more often she rocks a low, throaty growl that is reminiscent of Amy Lee from Evanescence. The result is startlingly unique, and fans cannot get enough of it.
Her debut album PURE HEROINE dominates U.S. charts and it’s not surprising why. Her embodied voice speaks to issues rooted in more serious tones than many of her musical peers. Her quadruple platinum single “Royals,” creates an ambiguous line between rebelling against and indulging in the luxuries that power and money can bring. It still holds the record for “Longest #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 by a Female Artist in 2013.”
In January of this year, Lorde walked away with two Grammy Awards including “Song of the Year” and “Best Pop Solo Performance.” Lorde was also nominated for an impressive 12 Billboard Music Awards and took home awards for “Best New Artist” and “Best Rock Song” for her debut single “Royals.”
Her tour started with Lollapalooza in Chicago at the beginning of August and will be traveling all over the U.S. ending her tour in Texas at the Austin City Limits Festival in October.
