Lujza is an emerging artist from the east coast of Australia. Fusing old school soul with fresh beats, Lujza is focused on telling her story her way. Her debut album 'Caught Up' brings us the love story from beginning to the end. From falling head over heels in love to the depth of heartbreak. Influenced by old school greats such as Etta James, Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding and contemporary artists such as Joss Stone, Alicia Keys and Amy Winehouse, Lujza is here to go deep and very personal. With powerful lyrics and haunting melodies, she has recently written several songs for the short film 'Consequences' available on an EP by the same name.
Her sound has been compared to soul greats like Jill Scott and Beverly Knight. Lujza bends her genres in accordance with the story to include Soul, R&B, Alternative Pop and 80's synth.
Lujza is currently working on her second studio album. "This album aims to go much deeper than I did with 'Caught Up'. Love is easy to write about. I now want to capture the raw edges of human experience and talk about the pain we all go through. Topics that are taboo, things that are ugly." Her latest EP 'Daddy Issues' is available in stores now along with Christmas songs 'Cinnamon Spice' and 'Lonely Without You'.
