Indie Artist Lelia Broussard Releases Masquerade

From a media release about indie artist Lelia Broussard, L.A. based but born in the bayous:

Indie Artist Lelia Broussard 3rd CD Release - Masquerade

Spunky indie songstress Lelia Broussard is about to hit in a big way, with the November 2nd release of her third studio album 'Masquerade', produced by Dan Romer (Ingrid Michaelson, Jenny Owen Youngs). Lelia's music sounds like: Jenny Lewis meets Jonatha Brooke, with a small pinch of Ani DiFranco's sass.

You'll find an approved download of the single Satellite here.

New York – Acclaimed LA-based songwriter Lelia Broussard, originally from the bayous of South Louisiana, is set to unleash her third full-length release, ‘MASQUERADE’ (November 2nd, Self-Release). With masterful production by Dan Romer (Ingrid Michaelson, Jenny Owen Youngs), the album boasts an intriguing collection of driving folk/pop gems, bringing to mind a cross between Jenny Lewis and Jonatha Brooke. Already, considerable buzz is building around ‘MASQUERADE’ with the early spread of “Satellite” and “Shoot For The Moon” among the songwriter’s fiercely loyal fan base.  Most recently, The Deli Magazine nominated Lelia for their Los Angeles “Artist of the Month” poll, and “Satellite” was prominently featured on powerhouse NPR AAA station WXPN's blog.

Over the course of her career, Lelia has collaborated with A-List producers including Rob Fusari (Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston Destiny's Child), Dave Trumfio (Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Built to Spill) and Marshall Altman (Kate Voegle, Marc Broussard).  Her songs have been featured on hit television shows such as CBS' Joan of Arcadia NBC’s Men In Trees, and MTV's The Hills  as well as a few small independent films. In 2008, Lelia signed a publishing deal with Rondor Universal Music Group. Lelia’s strong grass roots fan base recently raised over $15,000 to help fund her new record and pushed her to be one of the most successful music projects on the popular indie fundraising site, Kickstarter.

“Lelia is an undeniable talent, in every way. She has it all, amazing voice, great songwriter, and overall an incredible artist. From the moment I first heard her voice, I knew there was something special going on, and when I saw her perform live for the first time at The Bitter End in New York, I was even more blown away. She has that thing everyone is looking for, the thing you can't quite describe what it is, that "it" factor, Lelia has it. She's incredible."
