Birmingham born Lady Leshurr is a female MC/singer and producer, currently taking the world by storm. She has developed her own unique style, having been making music since the age of six. Her unique sound and seamless flow has an instant likeability, complimented by a melodic singing voice and harmonies that just pour off her tongue. Her commercial style is backed up and accompanied by fast-paced and, at times, fierce lyrical display. It’s this brilliance that the masses all over the UK, and indeed the world, tend to LOVE.
A powerful performance on last year’s Glastonbury Introducing stage has thrown Leshurr further into the limelight and she is fast becoming known as “the one to watch” (Mike Skinner – Guardian Newspaper). Her stage presence is second to none and her writing talents are simply enviable.
Leshurr’s material blends her unique sound with popular genres encompassing house, hip hop, dancehall and pop. Citing Lil Wayne as one of her key influences, Leshurr could already be his female equivalent. She loves to experiment with her musical productions and constantly seeks to further her vision to create a sound that takes music to a whole new level.
Leshurr has featured on tracks with Tinie Tempah, Wiley, Lethal B and Dot Rotten, to name just a few, and since signing a publishing deal with EMI, she was worked with a range of producers including R1, Noisa, Loco and Wizzy Wow. She was a part of the Female Takeover alongside Lioness and Baby Blue, and was also invited by DJ Cameo to feature on his collaboration track, “Who’s Dat?”. Leshurr recently supported Wiley on his nationwide tour and has just finished touring with Lethal B and Ghetts as part of the Bigga Fish tour.
Currently the talk of the UK’s urban scene, Leshurr now has the support of the UK’s premiere hip hop DJs, Tim Westwood, Mista Jam, Target and Cameo; and she is beginning to grab the attention of both Radio One and Galaxy Networks. Her recent cover of the Chris Brown/Busta Rhymes collab “Look At Me Now” has become a global phenomenon, amassing in excess of 100,000 hits in half a day on www.worldstarhiphop.com.
Collectively – Lady Leshurr’s music videos and freestyle uploads have racked up MILLIONS of views, acting as clear proof that she is truly loved by the members of her huge fan base and indeed the general public alike.
In June 2011, Lady Leshurr launched her own record label, Gutter Strut Recordings, in partnership with her manager. To compliment the music releases, she has designed a range of merchandise which is now on sale. (Namely the hugely popular “Friggin L” clothing line)
To add to her musical talents, Leshurr played one of the lead females in Vertigo Films’ 2009 critically acclaimed movie “1 Day”. A talented actress as well as an artist, Leshurr simply loves to perform. Overall, Leshurr is an immensely talented, ambitious and truly unique individual who continues to grow from strength to strength.
