Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
hi, I’m lemin. 🙂 I’m a singer, songwriter, and producer. I turn my sad into songs. I’ve been writing music since I was 8, breaking hearts (including my own) since I was 12, and pursuing music ever since. when I was 17 I moved to Toronto from London, Ontario, and was eventually accepted to the remix project where I really started getting serious about music. since then, I’ve been writing in some incredible studios across Toronto, New York, and Los Angeles. but at the end of the day, I write and produce my own best music at home in my bedroom.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
My newest single “when i met you ft. Sean Leon” (@seanleon)! this is one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written and I’m so happy to have finally put it out. really proud of the vocal production I did on the first half of the song. I recorded and manipulated layers on layers of vocal harmonies from my bedroom. be sure to listen all the way through because when jack rochon’s (@jackrochon) beat drops and Sean Leon tells his story, you. will. vibe.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
I’m a HUGE Daniel Caesar and Charlotte Day Wilson fan. I really love their chords and melodies – both of their entire catalogues are flawless. Jessie Reyez, of course, I have to mention. she was in the round of the remix project just before me! she is an incredibly talented performer and songwriter. I had the honour of working with one of my favourite Toronto artists on this latest single, the amazing Sean Leon. so grateful to him for gracing my track with his flow!
