Leyla Blue is a 20 year-old pop/R&B singer-songwriter who was born and raised in Manhattan. The child of two fashion photographers, Leyla’s music and overall aesthetic bleeds downtown New York City. A self-proclaimed sad bitch/bad bitch, she grew up on the early 2000s pop of Christina Aguilera & Britney Spears while also drawing influences from soulful singer-songwriters such as Carole King, Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill and more.
Leyla began writing songs to cope with the world after dealing with mental illness and is super vulnerable and authentic in both her music and her messaging. All the music is extremely personal, as she bares it all in hopes of encouraging others to do the same.
Her debut EP Songs For Boys That Didn’t Text Me Back is available everywhere now.
