Over the summer and fall of 2017 LIA released four singles under Parisian label Nowadays Records. Her first single, an energy-infused, cinematic electronic gem titled Shiver, broke 1.4 million Youtube views in the first year. Two of LIA’s fifteen collaborations also quickly peaked within their first year of release: Distant by Clement Bazin struck 8 million Spotify streams along with I Promise by Fossa Beats and Thomas White at 5.6 million. In 2018, LIA was invited to perform in Montreal, New York City and Singapore for MURAL Festival, Bar Datcha, NYC label Key + Needle and Singaporean label Super Snacks.
With this momentum, LIA finished developing her debut Vasilia EP to be released October 2019 and co-produced with Montreal’s Lust and Thomas White. Drawing inspiration from the slavic folk tale of Baba Yaga, Vasilia depicts Lia’s journey of finding resilience in the mind, resilience as a woman and resilience in her relationships.
