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. Most recently, they have supported Warner Bros. Records band, Lawrence, & Ripe at U Street Music Hall, Jonny P at Rams Head On Stage & Tides of Man at Ottobar.
