Sinner // Leilani Wolfgramm
Good God, I’m a sinner—thicker when the blood floods, so I make it thinner. Love comes slow— baby, I can’t get it quicker,so I put my heart straight into the liquor. My heart broke the bottle,and it feels better than I thought it would.And I lose better than I thought I could.– “Sinner” fromLive Wire- 2018
It’s impossible to define Leilani Wolfgramm. To say she is a singer-songwriter would do no justice to the raw storytelling songstress and fierce voice that she is. Her music is emotionally raw, fiercely candid, self-deprecating and the most honest reflection of someone trying to make sense of a fucked up world.
Her songs are a musical auto-biography - visually narrating us through scenes of early childhood trauma, drug addiction, mental illness, familial loss, self-destruction, romantic dynamics and mortality mixed with an open self-dialogue, painful self-observation and genuine self-awareness.
She is a true artist when it comes to matching vibes to stories. She wanders in and out of genres with incredible ease with a range of work spanning soulful reggae, indie pop, electronic dancehall and everything in between. She is a living breathing story of what it means to be human, to be open about one’s demons, and of the power that comes from owning our own nature and looking at ourselves without fear.
She is unapologetically who she is and helps anyone who might be wandering in the dark find that same courage.
