When she was a child in Auckland's North Shore, Ella
Yelich-O'Connor, aka Lorde, listened to the music of The Smiths, Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, and Nick Drake, as well as Otis
Redding and Etta James. She was also inspired by poetry. Her mother was a renowned poet and Lorde familiarized herself with
celebrated poets like Allan Ginsberg, T.S. Eliot, Raymond Carver, Ezra Pound and Sylvia Plath.
At the tender age of
5, she went with a friend to a drama class and uncovered her passion for acting and singing. Then in 2009, she and a pal,
Louis McDonald, took home the top prize at their school's talent show. McDonald's father caught the show and was impressed
enough to mail out recordings of Lorde doing Mama Do by Pixie Lott and Warwick Avenue by Duffy.
A&R scout Scott
Maclachlan discovered her when she was just 12 years old. She inked a deal with Universal at 13 and started working with songwriters
a year later. Working with Universal, much of Lorde's formative years were spent polishing her artistic vision and sound.Lorde
said, "I started writing songs when I was 13 or 14 because I've always been a huge reader. My mum's a poet and we've always
had so many books, and that's always been a big thing for me, arguably more so than music."
Lorde was groomed to be
a diva, already shaped by poetry and musical talent. She deepened her musical inspiration even more by welcoming contemporary
music coming from Animal Collective, SBTRKT, Burial, James Blake, Bon Iver and Drake.
The Love Club EP arrived in March
2013. With no big-time promotion, her first EP earned wings on its own. It still managed to score the No. 1 spot on the New
Zealand Album Chart. At the same time, her track, Royals, landed at the top of the singles chart without even a social media
While still riding the momentum of the success of her EP, Lorde earned the honor of becoming the first woman
to top the Billboard Alternative Songs chart in the U.S. in August 2013. This was an achievement that hadn't occurred since
1996.Lorde released her first full-length album, Pure Heroine, in the U.S. the following month.
though she doesn't have too many albums to her credit yet, Lorde has struck a chord with both fans and the music industry.
She received four Grammy nods at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. They were for Best Pop Solo Performance, Record of the Year,
Song of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for her album, Pure Heroine. She claimed both Best Pop Solo Performance and Song
of the Year for her premiere single, Royals. She additionally was named the third youngest winner in Grammy history as well
as the youngest winning New Zealand native on record. She was also the youngest individual to be nominated for the Record
of the Year honor.
Because of her enchantment with "royals and aristocracy," Ella Marija
Lani Yelich-O'Connor adopted the stage name of Lorde. She started off with the name, "Lord," and added on the "e" to give
it a touch of femininity.
Lorde Concert Experience
Lorde has garnered high praise for her stage presence
and live concert performances. In fact, Billboard magazine applauded Lorde for having a "well-defined stage presence" and
"savvy" and "unflappable" disposition. Billboard also added that her live concerts brim with "confidence and demeanor well
beyond her years." Lorde billed her dancing as a response to the way "the music manifests itself" in her body. Lorde has said
that she has felt self-conscious about her dance moves, but draws inspiration from David Byrne.
Lorde said that she
preps for her concerts by choosing outfits that make her "feel grand." When the New York Times reviewed her sold-out Big Apple
shows, they stated: "She moved to the beat, but like a teenager, not a music video trouper; her feet sometimes seemed planted
to the stage. Lorde wasn't pretending to be a superhuman pop idol..."
