It’s Day 7, and #7 in the running order is Lesley Roy (Ireland), who will be singing ‘Maps’ at Eurovision 2021
- It was written in Lesley Roy’s stars that she would be a singer. Lesley’s mother had been playing in different bands and got her daughter her first guitar at the age of 10.
- To get closer to her dream of being noticed, Lesley had to busk in the streets to raise enough money to record her songs in the studios.
- A turning point in her career was inking with Jive Records and meeting all-pop-star-master, producer Max Martin.
- The evening she felt was a “f***ing disaster” actually ended up with Max agreeing to listen to her demos… and offering her an album!
- Lesley is happily married to her love, Lauren. The women have been together for 13 years.5. Lesley has worked with some first-rate pop stars, including American singer Katy Perry.
