Bio

 

Del Florida is a neo-soul tinged, dream pop band based in Washington, D.C. and fronted by vocalist and multi instrumentalist Leela Dawson. Formed in Liverpool, UK, Del Florida cut their teeth in the local club scene and opened for up and coming acts such as Montreal melancholy indie rock group TOPS and San Diego noise pop duo Crocodiles. They have released three singles to date while receiving numerous accolades from blogs like Getintothis, Rock Revolver and Music Manual. They've also performed live on Liverpool's Bay TV. After wearing out her student visa, Dawson returned to D.C. to keep doing what she does best- bringing everyone into the world of Del Florida. In 2016, they supported Warner Bros. Records band Lawrence at U Street Music Hall and Jonny P at Rams Head On Stage in 2017. Most recently, they've shared the stage with The Reign of Kindo & Little Tybee at Ottobar.
