Occasionally an artist is discovered when no one else is watching. This well-kept secret is California's Lena Fayre ("Lay-nah Fair"). Her talent goes far beyond her 18 years, as she sings and writes with a genuine spirit and a fresh, fearless voice. There is a dark yet ethereal quality to her songwriting that experiments with different instrumentation. From R&B to electro-pop to stark acoustic ballads, Fayre has a singular voice. She performs regularly around Los Angeles, at venerable indie venues such as Hotel Cafe, Troubadour, Satellite, and EchoPlex. She performed during SXSW 2015 and ASCAP selected her to perform live at its 2015 "I Create Music" Expo. She has amassed 6 million video views on YouTube and was named a "New Artist You Need To Know" by Rolling Stone. Fayre self-released her debut EP in 2013 and last year self-released her first album, titled "OKO," which has racked up over 6 Million streams. She released a single titled "This World" in March of 2015, which was featured in a climactic scene of the popular CW show "The Vampire Diaries," aired on April 23rd, 2015. Fayre's latest release, a five-track EP titled "Is There Only One?" came out in late July, 2015 and received immediate critical praise with ARTISTdirect's saying "Fayre takes pop music into uncharted realms with impressive results on new EP," and Clique's WhoWhatWear tagging her as a "fresh face in music on the verge of a major year." No small feat for an artist doing things on their own.


From Lena:

grown through sound, visuals, echolalia.

Music, the mirror words of wound and remedy.

This is refraction.

Likenesses, images, distortion.

Generation Now, Generation New.

A child thumbing a flower as it pricks a hole.

Friction as past and future coalesce.

These are my stories.

Possession is one of five songs on Lena Fayre's EP titled, "Is There Only One?", released in late July 2015. Here's what Fayre had to say about the song: "I wish I could say that she is the other woman, but in fact I am. What you see on the EP cover is a real Instagram photo of the real girl taken by the real boy who inspired this collection of music. She isn't me; I will never be her. Obsession, possession, denial, heartbreak landed me in a position to write and express my way through a difficu
