Hailing from a small beach town in Wall Township, New Jersey, FLETCHER has been pursuing her dream from a young age. It began with mimicking Celine Dion and Bob Marley, long before proper classical training at age 5. You may recognize her from her viral music videos. Or from Spotify, where she has nearly 100 million streams and has already covered the popular New Music Friday playlist three times to date. Or maybe you’ve seen her on stage—at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Life is Beautiful, or one of the many festivals she has under her belt. The singer-songwriter, who somehow also found time to graduate from NYU’s famed Clive Davis Institute for Recorded Music, has already begun carving out a space for herself in pop music, and with the release of her new EP—due Spring 2019—it’s clear that she has much more to say.
“The whole EP is like an arc and a storyline of me moving to New York City and falling in love and having my heart broken,” she says. On the project, she worked with the esteemed producer Malay (Frank Ocean, Lorde), and numerous talented women, including buzzing songwriters Ingrid Andress, Jennifer Decilveo, and Amy Allen (Selena Gomez, Halsey), who co-wrote FLETCHER’S first single off the EP, the simultaneously heart-wrenching yet catchy “Undrunk,” out January 25th. Emil Nava (Calvin Harris, Post Malone, Ed Sheeran) and Grace Pickering have steered the creative direction on the forthcoming EP.
