Luan Mei is an independent singer-songwriter and guitarist from Madrid based in Brighton, UK. She started playing the guitar at age 12 and writing her own songs at age 15 as a way of understanding feelings and life situations through her synaesthetic conception of the world.
Feeling colours for people, moments and sounds creates a whole universe filled up with metaphors and similes in her lyrics.
Her constant search for her own sound brought her to Brighton at the age of only 18, where she graduated in Songwriting and launched her career as a songwriter. She has performed in Brighton venues such as The Prince Albert, The Mesmerist, and Latest Music Bar, as well as at The Great Escape festival in 2019 and Alevosia in her hometown.
Combining different genres like indie, pop, funk, and soul as her natural way of creating music, Luan Mei has the power of bringing the audience inside her vibrant and rhythmic style of playing: her fingerstyle guitar work adds a very rhythmic edge to her writing, which beautifully underpins her catchy melodies. Her unique voice and energy when playing challenge anybody to remain indifferent.
