Lena Fayre / Press

“Pop has seen its fair share of dark horses or unexpected anti-hero stars whether it's Florence + the Machine or Lorde. However, there's something very special about Lena Fayre. She doesn't have an inkling of coalescing to any sort of mainstream whim, but rather drawing it right to her like a magnet and never letting go. This is the next movement.”

““Colors of Leaving,” the latest track she’s shared from her forthcoming EP Is There Only One? is her most involved production yet: It’s an atmospheric, synth-heavy slow burn built on stuttering FKA twigs-esque drums and Fayre’s ethereal vocals.”

“Below is the premiere for "Do You Like That?"—the first song lifted from said EP—and one that swirls with a dark, twitchy kind sensuality that belies her years. Liquid beats and stirring strings to close it all out, but Fayre's unerringly confident vocals are the track's most arresting feature, sure to find favor with fans of Banks.”

The writing, playing and singing abilities of Fayre is highly marketable. Her overall persona and mainstream mystique is something millions of people should gravitate towards -- 9/10 Stars

“Teen Vogue's Sound Scout: Introducing Lena Fayre, Your Next Teenage Dream. Get read to fall in love with Lena and her fantasy-like world.”

“Lena definitely shows off the vast dynamics of her vocal abilities, weaving through different styles throughout her tracks and even within a song. You will hear Lena’s vocal journey travel seamlessly through strong operatic projections, soft and sultry lounge stylings, haunting and piercing whispers, and even some jazzy freestyle inflections. She has fun with various self-induced vocal accents from track to track as well. Usually laying down a single vocal track on each song, there are instances where Lena gets some harmonization help from vocalist Sanders Bohlke. On top of this amazing display of vocal abilities, Lena also drops a little tasty rap verse on one of her tracks.”

“L.A. native Lena Fayre is not yet out of her teens, but she sings like she’s lived three lifetimes of disquietude, alternately woozy and weary, dreamy and hopeful, piquant and playful. Her 2014 album “Oko” displays substantial production sophistication, with its refracted pop, R&B and balladry, and it also suggests Fayre is beyond her years lyrically. Take the half-spoken, half-rapped outro to “Games:” “Who needs a brain / when we have these games? / I don’t know what I want / so for now I’ll stay the same.” Fayre is far from a one-teenager show; she’s worked with producers John Alagia, Sean Gould, Jimmy Harry, Chris Keup and Nolan Sipe; co-written with people such as Olga Bell, Sanders Bohlke, Colin Killalea, Liz Phair and Adam Smith; and Bon Iver’s Reggie Pace and solo artist Matthew E. White collaborated on the album as well. She’s also studied under acclaimed vocal coach Lis Lewis. “Oko” earns an “A” for execution.”

“I can honestly say this is one artist that clearly gives you a clairvoyant snapshot that is highly original, uplifting and dare I say brilliantly catchy in scope - 5/5 Stars”
