LHO (Leighann Hodgkins) is a pop singer-songwriter from Boston, MA. She got her start in country music and has been singing her whole life. She started out writing country music; her debut single being “Finding Grace”. When the pandemic and quarantine hit, Leighann was craving something more. Her writing changed and she began to write about some of the darker feelings and experiences in her life. She created LHO as an alter ego to speak her truth and release her sassy, honest bops. On April 16th, she released her debut pop EP ‘The Butterfly Effect’. Her latest single, ‘Exposure’, is available on all streaming platforms now!

 

LYRICS:

 

You been running through my mind
I know we’re done and that’s fine
I know I’m being selfish
I had to call you tonight

 

Tell you that I’m missing you
I been tryna play it cool
But I can’t seem to find a way
To erase the pain and wash you away
Trying to clean up this mess
Play your words back in my head
This was never the plan
I don’t understand
Said you would never let go of my hand

 

And you tell me that it’s over
I need to get over all the broken closure
And quit trying to expose ya
But the truth is I’ve been staying sober
Holding my composure while it’s on my shoulders
Because I never told ya

 

Ooooo

 

Was it all in my head?
I never meant to hurt you, yeah
But I can’t let you go
So I’m calling now so you know

 

Tell you that I’m missing you
I been tryna play it cool
But I can’t seem to find a way
To erase the pain and wash you away
Trying to clean up this mess
Play your words back in my head
This was never the plan
I don’t understand
Said you would never let go of my hand

 

Can’t clear the voices in my head
You been sending mixed messages
You were my lover and best friend
Tryna fix the disconnect
Seems you were never honest with me
Tell me how is she
How is she?
Is she everything you thought she’d be?

 

 

Tell us what your fans are saying about your music.
A lot of my fans say my music is honest and catchy. They love the ballad-style vocals over the boppy beats. They’re always reaching out to me and telling me how they connect with certain songs and how they use them as parts of their healing process.

 

Tell us the factors you consider when writing a song.
When I write a song, I think about how I would tell it as a story. What feelings would I convey? What kind of phrasing and descriptive words would I use? Music is the most honest and beautiful form of storytelling so I focus on that aspect and then let the rest flow to me.

 

Discuss the production of the song.
My friend Roger Guess produced the beat for “Exposure”. He also produced the beat for my song “Cross the Line”. He sent it to me one night and I wrote “Exposure” in about five minutes. I brought it to the studio shortly after and Josh Schuback of Phoenix Down Recording in Somerville, MA mixed and mastered the whole thing. He always gets my vocals just right so I bring all of my projects to him!

 

Tell us your best mood to create a song.
I write best when I’m feeling sad or spiteful or angry. Spite is always interesting to write out of because there’s something so powerful about having some rage and your ego get the best of you; it makes for all the best pop songs in my opinion. People love scandalous songs. They want to feel like they’re in on all your secrets.

 

Tell us the names of artists or musicians you have worked with, in the past.
I haven’t worked with any artists yet. I would love to do some collaborative work very soon now that I know who I am as an artist, what my sound is, and what I stand for. I do have some dream co-writes though: Julia Michaels, Halsey, Fletcher, and Lennon Stella.

 

Tell us about your experience performing on stage for the first time or recording in the studio for the first time.
I think I was about three when I first stepped on a stage. I had a dance recital and I remember I wasn’t even nervous. I loved getting dolled up and all of the lights. When I got off stage I ran over to my mom and said, “I was born to be on stage.” I haven’t gotten off since!

 

Tell us how you approach songwriting.
Songwriting for me is very sporadic at the moment. It’s emotionally driven so I have to be really deep in something for it to feel like I’ve written a good song. I’m constantly writing little notes on my phone at random points in the day when lyrics come to me. I keep a million voice memos on phone as well when I get melody ideas.

 

Tell us your opinion on blending genres or experimenting with sound.
I think it’s important to keep an open mind when you start songwriting. I don’t consider myself one specific genre. I started out in country music and I love it more than anything, but I also found a strange sense of healing and identity in pop music. I used to be in a rock band as well and dabbled there for a few years. You need to float wherever you feel most authentic and that could be a different genre every day.

 

Elaborate on what compels you to go into music.
Music is so inclusive. I always feel least alone or misunderstood when I’m performing or recording. I always tell people that the real me is the ‘me’ you see performing. I have always loved music and the sense of community it brings. I’ve been through a lot of hurt and challenges in my life and music has always been my outlet. I’m only ever able to close a chapter after I’ve written some music about it.

 

Discuss how you record your vocals.
When I record my vocals I head to the studio in Somerville and lay down the melody/main vocals for the song. Then I do a million harmonies because I love them. After that, I get into ad-libs and little background stuff for essence. Finally, I sing harmonies over all of those tiny parts because I’m a vocalist first and foremost and you can never have too many harmonies… right?

 

Elaborate on the song.
“Exposure” is actually the first song I’ve ever written that isn’t about my experience. It’s a song I wrote about a messy breakup I watched a friend of mine go through. She was in love with this guy who had a friend who was a female that she was always a little leery about. He told her she didn’t need to worry about the said friend, but after they broke up he ended up with the friend he told her not to worry about. I watched her fumble through all the messy feelings you feel after having the rug pulled out from under your feet. I sat and listened to her talk through all of it and started to write a song from her perspective. I asked if she was okay with me recording it and if she’d like to be a part of the process and she gave her blessing. Now she has the song as part of her healing process and to validate her feelings.

 

Elaborate on your artist’s name and the title of the album.
So my artist name is LHO (pronounced “low”). It’s the first initial of my first name (Leighann) and the first two initials of my last name (Hodgkins). I always wanted a stage name and one day I saw LHO on a license plate and just had an epiphany. I knew that needed to be my stage name. I didn’t start using it until years later because I was singing country music and it didn’t feel like that right fit for the music I was writing at the time. Only after my pop music was written did it feel right to call myself LHO.
