London-based songwriter Eloise Viola cemented herself as one of the most exciting names in pop music in 2020 and shows no signs of slowing down with her new single ‘Lost & Found’. The new single is a powerful, fierce and slow-burning pop anthem utilizing Eloise’s instantly recognisable vocal exquisitely. Formed on a smooth, jazzy chord progression the track builds to an anthemic crescendo in the chorus, underpinning Viola’s lyrical message of defiance. Her unique brand of fiery pop music has led to over 3 Million streams on Spotify.
Growing up, Viola w as captivated by vocal icons such as Janis Joplin, an artist whose infectious anthems stayed with Viola as she finished up a degree in Psychology. Throughout university, her music and studying were sidelined by issues around eating disorders and poor mental health, a passage in her life that still informs her writing to this day.
“It’s no exaggeration to say that mental health issues are a pandemic at university. I knew so many intelligent, bright, vivacious women who were persistently preoccupied with their body image and had some sort of disordered eating.”
“ I write music with the goal of inspiring my listeners so that they are able to love themselves in spite of everything they see. Writing songs about self-love to empower others has always been my way of reminding myself of how far I have come, and how important it is to stay positive.”
