Artist of the Week - Meet Lennie Rayen

Posted by Camille Côté on

Who are you and what do you do?
Hi!! My name is Lennie Rayen & I'm a singer/songwriter!

The Montreal singner songwriter Lennie Rayen

What first got you into music?
I was around 6 years old & I think I saw something like High School Musical playing on TV, I saw them all singing & was like "I wanna do that too". So I started taking piano lessons & from there I've just always been doing music.

What is you main inspiration?
This is hard because I'm inspired by so much, & it's always changing. Currently I'd say I'm inspired by my environment & the people I've been surrounding myself with.

How would you describe the music that you typically create?
I would describe my music as Alternative Indie/Folk or Indie Dream Pop. I'm always experimenting with my sound so it's always changing & I feel like it's hard to fit in any particular box.

Could you tell us more about your recent single?
My most recent single "Like You Do" is a song I wrote about comparing myself to other people all the time, I do it so often that it literally consumes me. With how I wrote it, it could also sound like a breakup song, which I love - the idea of people interpreting it for themselves.

Any further project you want to share with us?
Right now, I'm writing & recording a lot of new music, I'm looking to put out another single sometime this year, & perhaps an EP next year!

Do you wear hats and how do you think fashion and music are related?
Yes! I've always loved fashion & I think incorporating fashion into music can really help set the tone for how the music may or may not sound.
