Biography

“Where words fail, music speaks.” It’s the tattoo on petite, 20 year old London’s back, and it embodies the heart and vulnerability through which her music speaks to its listeners.

A Chicago native, London established herself as an artist at a young age. Singing at age 3 (we have the cassettes to prove it) it was only a matter of time before she started writing music of her own. On her 13th birthday, London picked up a guitar and taught herself to play. Eight short months later, London snuck into a 21 and over open mic and took the stage for the first time. From that moment on, there was no turning back. London recorded her first single “Better Left Unsaid” in October of 2005. “Better Left Unsaid” earned her the number one requested single several weeks in a row on Mixx Studios Radio. With the success of her first single, London quickly gained a loyal online following. In 2008, she was the #1 unsigned folk, and #2 unsigned acoustic/indie artist on MySpace for Illinois. She achieved 3 million plays on YouTube and over 1 million plays on MySpace - all as an unsigned artist. In the summer of 2009, London’s internet success translated to her first record deal when she signed to Severe Records out of Nashville, Tennessee. “I threw my life in a suitcase, couch surfed around Nashville and made my first record. I can’t imagine a better way to do it” London said.

Under Severe Records, London teamed up with an all-star cast to create her debut album, Diving Heart First.
