"LO joue de ses émotions pour titiller les nôtres. Ses textes sont d’une justesse remarquable"
Sometimes a vocation is the result of an anomaly. Lo Bailly can testify to this. Born into a family that was stranger to the world of music, the Brussels-based singer began his his path by finding a synth and a guitar in a corner of his parents' house. If nobody knows where these instruments come from, Lo Bailly knows where he is going. Self-taught pianist, trained in journalism and political communication, he quickly put his writing skills to music. Sharp pen, sharp writing, the artist puts words to his emotions. An adept of the spoken word, heir to the Beat Generation poets, Lo Bailly first followed in the footsteps of artists such as Veence Hanao or Scylla by winning, like them, the Du F. dans le Texte competition. In the following months, the singer gives a glimpse of "Parades". Doped by a chiaroscuro writing, this first E.P. spreads its melancholic charms at the crossroads of genres. Between electronic pulsations, French song and urban poetry, Lo Bailly's flow embraces piano notes, caressed with his fingertips. An album will be released in the spring of 2023 and the track "HS" is the first extract.
Mia Lena is a 24-year-old singer from Brussels with an unusual tone and a soulful pop voice. The young woman has a lot of energy and is not afraid to say out loud what she thinks without taking into account the taboos, which to her are the curse of her generation. In her music, Mia talks without restraint about her life and emotions, but also about her good and bad experiences and her friends who are very important to her in her daily life. After a few singles full of potential, she reappeared on the scene with a futuristic pop sound, finding inspiration mainly in hip-hop and R&B. Originally influenced by English vocalists such as Amy Winehouse, she turns her gaze closer to home in an upcoming EP, with French-language lyrics reminiscent of Laylow, Lomepal or Poupie.
