Lorde was born as Ella Marija
lani Yelich-O'Connor and elected to go by a stage name as a singer-songwriter. If one cannot tell by her birth name, Lorde
is of Croatian and Irish descent. As the story goes, Lorde chose the stage name because of her intense interest in aristocracy.
What is quite obvious about Lorde is that she is an intelligent young artist who is clearly well read. It is not surprising
to learn that her mother, Sonja Yelich, is a prize-winning Poet, and father a Civil Engineer. She was born and raised in the
beautiful and inspiring country of New Zealand, where, from an early age, music and the creative arts captured and held her
attention through various classes in drama and singing. She was such an incredible talent from such a young age that she was
signed with Universal at the age of thirteen. Her musical debut was "The Love Club," an EP that was released in 2012 and included
her first hit. The first single off the album entitled, "Royals," immediately topped the charts in her home country of New
Zealand and quickly become number one on the Billboard Hot 100 the following year. What is more impressive is that Lorde is
the first solo artist to hail from New Zealand to make it to a number one chart position.
In many ways, Lorde's breakthrough was immediate. She signed with Universal and topped the charts with her
first album. In 2013, Lorde released a second album called, "Pure Heroine," that immediately received critical acclaim and
found success among the masses throughout the world. Numerous accolades and award shows have followed the success of her two
albums. She received four nominations at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. Lorde was the winner of Song of the Year for "Royals"
and Best Pop Solo Performance. She was even selected as the International Female Solo Artist at the BRIT Awards, which is
quite impressive for a seventeen-year old young woman. It isn't just talent that got Lorde signed to Universal, it was also
the power of fatherly love. After a school performance in a talent show that Lorde won, her father put together recordings
of his daughter covering other artists to a number of talent scouts. She was only a teenager at the time when the A&R
scout signed her to Universal to further develop her sonic artistry. Following in the shoes of her mother, it was evident
that Lorde would be an active participant in the writing of her own songs. It was not until she was partnered with the producer,
Joel Little, that sparks flew and magic happened. It was in one week that the twosome created three wonderful songs that included
the hit "Royals." After it was all said and done, Lorde has become recognized as an incredible talent. In 2013, Lorde was
offered multiple publishing deals to place her music in movies and advertising. In the end, the decision was to go with Songs
Music Publishing. It is reported that it was a 2.5 million dollar deal.

a Tears for Fears' song, "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," that was on the soundtrack for the motion picture the "Hunger
Games: Catching Fire." Another interesting opportunity for Lorde is when she performed "All Apologies" with the remaining
members of Nirvana at the band's inauguration into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. What an incredible moment for a young woman
to perform with what has become a legendary 1990s band.
