Lennon Stella shot to fame back in 2012 when she was hired to play Maddie Conrad in the hit US music drama Nashville. Stella along with younger sister Maisy played sisters Maddie and Daphne in the show which will come to an end this year after six seasons.
During their time on the country music drama they were renowned for their stunning covers of hits such as ‘Ho Hey’ and ‘Boom Clap’. But this year will see the 18-year-old recent High School graduate break out on her own with the release of her own music.
Lennon recently announced she had signed her first label deal with Records which will see her releasing her music through Columbia Records coinciding with Records’ new deal with Sony Music.
special special day <3. Soooo excited that I can finally share that I've signed my first label deal with @recordsco The release will go through @columbiarecords, coinciding with RECORDS’ new joint venture with @sonymusicglobal. i feel so lucky to work hand in hand with this incredible and inspiring group of people. There are no words to describe the feeling of finally being able to release my own music, something I have always dreamed of. I am truly thankful for all the love and support. stay tuned xxxx
So to coincide with this exciting news we have put together a list of 10 reasons why Lennon Stella will take this music world by storm this year;
1: She has incredible vocal range
During her time starring in Nashville the multi-talented star wowed us with her gorgeous vocal ability and we know her own original music will blow critics and fans away.
2: She’s an all round musician
Not only does Stella have a voice of an angel but she can also play the guitar brilliantly. She has showcased this talent many times and it will be an integral part of her new material.
3: She’s kindhearted
Not only is the teenager a talented singer and actor but she is also a philanthropist. Last year she spent time in Kenya with her sister Maisy and their parents.
when we were in Kenya we went to the schools that @wemovement are the reason for, and I am forever changed. the kindest most affectionate girls and young women in the world. after spending much time with them and seeing how pure the love is they have for each other, my mom and I asked them "is there any drama ever? Do you guys ever fight?" She looked at us like we had three heads. "Noooo, these are my sisters" and all the girls surrounding shook their heads in agreeance. This is a HIGHSCHOOL mind you, and on top of that they sleep there year round and go to school from 4:30am to 10pm EVERYDAY. Highschool girls are mean, they were to me at least. These girls have the most genuine care and love for everyone around them. no judgment. no comparison. just admiration and support for their friends. this was such an inspiration to me. Build eachother UP. Love eachother HARD. we're all brothers and sisters ??
4: She interacts with fans on social media
A big part of being a success in the music industry is taking time to build a relationship with fans and Lennon always takes time to reply to fans via her social media outlets.
