DEL FLORIDA

Del Florida is the brainchild of Washington D.C. vocalist and multi instrumentalist, Leela Dawson. The group combine elements of neo soul, progressive rock, dream pop & 80’s new wave, which UK blog Get Into This declares “If Mars Volta had binged on a volume of Beach Boys enriching hits then you are getting close to where Del Florida could be”. While cutting their first full length album, Del Florida have shared the stage with a variety of notable bands including Tops, Lawrence, Ripe, The Reign Of Kindo, Little Tybee and Tides Of Man. The band continues to use their multicolored sound to bring their audiences into a lucid dream-like state.

MUSIC:

“Frontwoman Leela Dawson has a hypnotically beautiful voice, which I am somewhat intimidated by but mostly just incredibly impressed by. Not only are the vocals and instrumentals absolutely amazing, but the lyrics scream femme power. I love every part of it and you probably will too.”
— Brightest Young Things
“If Mars Volta had binged on a volume of Beach Boys enriching hits then you are getting close to where Del Florida could be”
