With her modern folk/pop sound and casual California style, 19 -year old Bleu Stroud’s music reflects the distinctively laid-back, LA-centric singer-songwriter vibe of her hometown. Evoking comparisons to Sheryl Crow, Jewel and Joni Mitchell, Bleu is a gifted songwriter with a silky, melodic voice. With no formal training, the multi-instrumentalist also plays guitar, 12 string guitar, ukulele, banjo and piano.
Bleu started playing guitar and wrote her first song at the age of eight. As a shy and introverted child who was often bullied for being quiet, Bleu found both solace and her voice in songwriting. Music as a creative and emotional outlet became an integral part of Bleu’s life. As Bleu grew into her teen years, her writing evolved with personal narratives focused on love, pain, trusting one’s self, enduring hope and acceptance — universally relatable themes.
Influenced by artists such as Jack Johnson, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran, Bleu takes a quirky approach to her melodies and lyrics, with a stylistic nod toward alternative folk, combining a dash of country and pop, With the help of Producer Mark Dutton, Bleu is recording her debut full-length album (due out Early 2020), that will feature 10 original songs all written and performed by Bleu.
When she’s not in the studio or performing live shows around LA, Bleu is writing songs and rehearsing with her band. Bleu is also happiest at the beach, camping and traveling.
Select show dates are currently being booked in support of Bleu’s forthcoming album. She most recently held direct support slots for LeAnn Rimes, and Nancy Wilson (of Heart) and Wilson Phillips. In 2020, the burgeoning singer/songwriter intends to dedicate herself full- time to her passion for creating music and touring.
