Lei "WorieL" Row is another one those artist floating under the radar, but I believe should more recognition for the quality music she is putting out in many ways she vibes from the 90`s era of RnB music and the 80, s. and her new EP is surely worth checking out if you are bored with the RnB/SOUL music that’s out right now and want to hear someone with a different edge look no further her bio reads like this (and I couldn’t put it any better)
If you want to hear what's been missing, then "Lei Row" a.k.a. " worieL" is your girl. Some say her sound is new and some say it's reminiscent; but most say it's necessary. Therefore, this songstress/DJ is definitely making her mark in music and entertainment!
Known for her unique melodic vocals, heartfelt lyrics, and chic vintage style: Lei brings an urban yet retro flavour and soulful sound to music, coining herself more as the “Urban Retro Songstress.” As a singer-songwriter, Lei has written and vocally produced in different genres from r&b/soul, to pop, to electro, to hip-hop, and her resume includes work with various artists, songwriters, and producers from New York City, Philadelphia, Miami, France, and Washington-DC just to name a few.
