About Lana Del Rey
Vocalist Lana Del Rey makes atmospheric, orchestral retro-’60s-sounding pop that showcases her torchy image and sensuously husky singing style. A native of Lake Placid, New York, Del Rey released the single “Kill Kill” under her given name, Lizzy Grant, in 2009 before remaking herself into the pop femme fatale character Lana Del Rey. A video for the single “Video Games” appeared online in August of 2011 and drew considerable buzz, as did a “secret show” she performed at Brooklyn’s Grasslands Gallery that September. Del Rey’s EP, featuring the songs “Video Games” and “Blue Jeans,” was released in fall 2011.
