Meet Lehi (pronounced Lee-Hi), a 24-year-old solo artist hailing from Hartlepool, Northeast England. From writing and playing to recording and producing his own music, Lehi is a true musical polymath.Immersed in music from an early age, Lehi spent his formative years writing tunes and strumming the guitar in a local band. His passion for recording ignited in 2015, as he dedicated countless hours to his college music studio. Alongside a school friend, he formed THE EUTONY, gracing audiences with three sensational guitar-focused singles in 2017.

Lehi pursued his musical journey at Leeds Beckett University, where he studied music production and graduated with flying colors in 2021. After years of honing his craft in various bands and performances around the Northeast, Lehi made the bold decision in 2023 to embark on a solo career.

Drawing inspiration from eclectic artists like The 1975, Valley, MUNA, and The Blue Nile, Lehi infuses his music with lush 80s synths and captivating vocal production. His musical odyssey spans across genres, creating a captivating soundtrack to his life.

His debut single even soared to No.1 on the IT IS NOW RADIO TOP 20 and KB Radio Canada Indie TOP 40.

Now, Lehi is gearing up for the release of his latest masterpiece, 'Shut the Door,' slated to drop on January 26th, 2024. Get ready to be swept away by Lehi's electrifying sound and innovative approach to music.

Homebody – Valley

I discovered Valley back in 2016, and ever since, they’ve been a huge inspiration to my music production. Homebody captures every element of what I love about Indie-Pop music, with beautifully layered acoustic guitars, carefully selected samples, and intricately produced vocals. They’re a band that is on my bucket list to see live if they ever come to the UK.

Supercuts – Jeremy Zucker

Jeremy Zucker is an artist that I discovered back when I was in university. Supercuts is the perfect sing-along track for driving in your car on a summer night. I was lucky enough to see Jeremy last year in Manchester and he ended the main set with Supercuts, and there wasn’t a single person in the room that wasn’t jumping along to the final chorus.

You Get What You Give – New Radicals

I think this song is old enough now to call it a classic? You Get What You Give invokes nostalgia from my childhood and I can never skip it when it comes on shuffle. It’s a shame the New Radicals discography is limited to just one album, but maybe the “quality over quantity” adage fits here.

Look at the Sky – Porter Robinson

Over the past year, I’ve listened to Porter Robinson a lot, specifically his album, “Nurture”. Although it’s left-field of my typical music taste, Something Comforting felt familiar the first time I listened to it. I especially love the outro of the track, where the natural and pitch shifted vocals alternate with each other, almost like there is a battle between characters or identities. I’ve watched the live version during late night deep dives on YouTube, and it gives almost an ethereal feeling. I think this electronic style is something that I’ll be exploring more in my own future releases. 

Girls – The 1975

I don’t think I could really complete this list without putting The 1975 somewhere on here. I vividly remember listening to The 1975 for the first time back in 2013 after being introduced by a friend to “Girls”. I fell in love with the electric guitar tones and being in my formative years, it really transformed the way that I viewed music. I think this was really my gateway into indie-pop and they’re by far the band that I’ve seen live the most.
