Postcards is Laleh's 8th studio album with new acoustic recordings of songs she has written and produced for Shawn Mendes, Jacob Banks, Demi Lovato, Ellie Goulding, Daya & Tori Kelly. In an industry and a world where, according to Billboard magazine, only 2% of music is produced by women Laleh's journey is pretty remarkable and this is just the beginning.
On this album we get to know what she has been up to between tours and recording her own music and get familiar with some of her accomplishments as a producer and a writer in LA.
Listen to POSTCARDS!
Laleh is not only one of Scandinavia’s biggest artist, selling out arenas and tours in a matter of days, she is also the first woman in history to win a Grammis for producer of the year back in 2005. A price she won again in 2016 along with a Grammis for Pop of the Year. In a world where mostly men become legends this woman has shaped history for the past years and will do so in the future, her way. While most artists, whether they like it or not, are quite easy to describe, Laleh’s musical expression has always been limitless, so no song is like the other. She is a rare combination of an unconventional and uncompromising free spirited artist and a hit making engineer. But more than anything she communicates a feeling of true freedom in both Swedish and English.
Apart from being a critically acclaimed artist, Laleh has also made quite a name for herself in the world of song-writing and producing. 2014 she moved to Los Angeles, where she is based now. Some of the artists that owe queen Laleh credit for song-writing and production includes Adam Lambert, Tori Kelly, Demi Lovato, Shaws Mendes, Daya, British star Elle Goulding and many more. But nothing about this is surprising for us swedes, we have known for 14 years that Laleh is anything but ordinary.
Her story started as a refugee moving from country to country seeking freedom and power over her own life, and her journey and quest to make the world a better place continues.
