Obsessed with music, Lorely spent her childhood living between Pasadena and San Fernando Valley. “My first semester of college, I got a laptop and was like, these jazz classes are such bullshit,” Lorely says. Over the summer of 2013, Lorely finally channeled those impulses into a song-a-day project while living in Boston. Every day, she’d sketch out a new song idea, make a scrappy home-recording, and post 1-minute YouTube videos she called colorminutes — little snippets of her gorgeous, ethereal pop songs set to different color screens. A 7-inch would soon be released for her first proper 3-minute Empress Of Single, “Don’t Tell Me”, which was adapted from one of the colorminutes. Soon after her first EP was released by Terrible Records. In September 2015, she released her debut album Me.
