Lauv

Who is Lauv?

Lauv is the stage name of the singer and songwriter Ari Leff, he is a 25-year-old male who began his music career in 2015 with his first release called lost in the light. Since his debut, he has blown up in the music industry and has made many top hits especially through his “I met you when I was 18” album. I especially love Lauv because he touches on mental health issues in his music and is very open about his personal struggles. This characteristic of his is brilliantly shown in his newest release called “~how I’m feeling~” which is his newest album. It talks a lot about mental illness. Ari is a great advocate for breaking the stigma that is placed around mental illness, through opening speaking about his struggles on social media and through his music he is a great role model for the current generation.
