Music Appreciation: Popular Music Presentation
By: Rebecca Brown

Ella Yelich-O'Connor, commonly known as Lorde, is a 17yr old musician. She was born on November 7, 1996 in Devonport, New Zealand, and landed a record deal at 13yrs old. Her song, 'Royals' has over 100,000,000 views on Youtube, and even gave her the number 1 spot on the, 'Hot 100' chart!
Furthermore, singer Lorde once discussed in an interview with Teen Vogue, "I've grown up in the same suburb my whole life... [and] come from a big, loud family, I'm the quieter one." Furthermore, Lorde has been described as, "...a teen you forget is a teen." In fact, her maturity is something Lorde thanks her family for and even mentioned, "My family [is what] keeps me grounded."
Hear from Ella herself discuss the beginnings of Lorde!

Lorde' s style of music was generated by the heavy influence over the rap/ hip-hop genre. In addition, Lorde also was influenced by the artists she grew up listening to which include: Neil Young, FleetWood Mac, The Smiths, Etta James, and Otis Redding. Furthermore, with her mom being a poet, Lorde was inspired with her writing by studying authors such as Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, Raymond Carver, and Sylvia Plath.

However, with Lorde only recently turning 17, it is known that she still has to complete high school, and is currently is taking a break from it, but plans to return shortly.
