Aviation - Lizzy Grant (aka Lana del Rey)

Aviation - Lizzy Grant
For the series 'Before they were famous', tonight we feature (again) miss Lizzy Grant a.k.a. Lana del Rey with her 2005 debut album 'Sirens'. The songs are practically all voice + guitar in a style that reminds a little bit the early Joni Mitchell and, well, the usual American country/folk/pop/rock female singer. I'm not saying that her current style is on the complete opposite of the music spectrum, but it's not next to this one either. All in all evolution is key, especially when you still haven't found success. I dare say that her vocals used to be better then (like in this song) than they are now, but well, she is composing great music today, more produced than her first songs for sure, that's her recipe for success and it works well, but it's always nice to go back and see how it all started. The songs are anyway greatly enjoyable, so it's quite a pleasant trip!!
