Lana Del Rey, born Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, is definitely different than most female artists of this time. Almost as if she popped out of a time machine, her music plays around with 50's and 60's Americana style, mixed with a little modern day swagger. She describes herself as a "self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra," and I think it totally fits. Her vocals are emotive and melodic, able to hit really high notes as well as the deep, low notes. Her musical style has been described as "Hollywood sadcore". It's melancholy, mostly slow, and really, really beautiful.
Miss Del Rey, now 29 years old, has been songwriting since she was 18. Around that age, she attended Fordham University and studied metaphysics. She told London's Daily Mail that this area of philosophy "bridged the gap between God and science. I was interested in God and how technology could bring us closer to finding out where we came from and why. That was when my musical experience began. I kind of found people for myself." She started playing in nightclubs around Brooklyn under different stage names and in 2011 she signed on to Interscope, Polydor, and Stranger Records after they noticed her on Youtube.
