The indie/synth-pop artist, J.L.G, shares his brand new song, “Lion Lady,” out now via E Major Music.
His secret to staying creative during the pandemic? J.L.G says “Music is my purpose, undoubtedly. I live for the creation process, the tireless hours ruminating on ideas in the studio, the trial and error, the groupthink….there is such a rush to create essentially something out of nothing.”
J.L.G is originally from Miami and talks fondly about his home city: “As for Miami, I want to bring a refreshing, authentic sound to my city, and make them proud. Show them that an artist and quirky weird kid as myself can contribute to the culture in my own specific way. I definitely want to contribute to my cities artistic culture.. there is a certain perception of south Florida/Miami that I believe is somewhat misunderstood. I just want to be a breathe of fresh air, and someone for the city to be proud of. Especially as a Latino artist. I want to paint a “different” picture of South Florida, through my lens.”
J.L.G began in 2019 in Miami by singer/songwriter, Jordan Luigi Guadalupe. His first EP, Vendetta, was released in 2019. In 2020, he released two singles, “Woolies” and “Cross Country (Blackthorn).” His music blends elements of synth-pop, indie-pop, and dance and pairs them with “self-aware songwriting” His unique sound is reminiscent of 80’s dance music, synth pop, and alternative rock.
