Biography of Lorde

Biography of Lorde

Lorde (Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor) is a singer and songwriter from New Zealand. She makes pop music uniquely and writes songs by thinking deeply. Lorde chose her stage name because she likes royalty, adding an “e” to Lord to make it more like a girl’s name.

Early Life – Education and Birth Place 

Lorde Early Life

Lorde was born in Takapuna (a part of Auckland), New Zealand. She is a citizen of both New Zealand and Croatia. She grew up in a place called Auckland, in neighborhoods called Devonport and Bayswater. When Lorde was five years old, she joined a drama group where she learned how to speak in front of people. She especially liked a book called “Feed” and authors like J. D. Salinger, Raymond Carver, and Janet Frame.

Lorde’s teacher at school thought she might be brilliant, so her mom had her do a particular test called the Woodcock–Johnson Tests to check how clever she was when she was six. She went to a specific school for intelligent kids called the George Parkyn Centre, but her mother took her out because she was worried about making friends. 

After that, she attended Vauxhall School and Belmont Intermediate School. At Vauxhall, she did well in a speech contest, coming in third and then first, in different years. She also did a big quiz about books with her school team in 2009 and got second place worldwide.

In the beginning, Lorde and her friend Louis McDonald won a talent show at their school (Belmont Intermediate). Louis’s dad sent recordings of them singing to a music company called Universal Music Group (UMG), and they liked it. Meanwhile, she joined a band at school called Extreme, and they did well in a music competition in November. In 2010, Lorde and Louis started performing together as a duo at different places in Auckland. 

In 2011, UMG got Lorde a singing coach, and she started writing her songs. She first sang her songs in November 2011. Then, in December, she started working with Joel Little to record some songs. While all this was happening, she was still going to school. She finished Year 12 in 2013 but decided not to return for Year 13 in 2014.

Lorde and her friend Joel Little made music together called “The Love Club EP”. At first, few people knew about her music, so it was free to download. But soon, many people liked it, and an extensive music company released it in 2013. Her song “Royals” became very popular and won two Grammy Awards. Lorde’s first album, “Pure Heroine”, came out in 2013, and people loved it. She also got to sing songs for movies like “The Hunger Games”. She even sang with the famous band Nirvana at a special event.

In 2016, Lorde moved to a place called Herne Bay in Auckland. At an awards show in 2016, she sang a particular song by David Bowie. People consider this song to be the best performance ever. The same year, she also helped write a song for a music duo called “Broods”.

After that, her new song “Green Light” was released in 2017. Just like other songs, people also love this song very much. Further, she sang a song with Bleachers (Rock band).

She made a music album called “Melodrama” in June 2017. Lots of people liked it, and it became very famous. The album even got nominated for a significant music award named, the Grammy Award. She had some other singers sing with her at her concerts. But there was a problem when she decided not to perform at a concert in Israel because of political disagreements. During this time, a magazine also talked about her talent and success.

She started making her third album in May 2020 with a friend named Jack Antonoff after her dog Pearl passed away. In November 2020, she said she would make a book called “Going South” about her trip to a cold place called Antarctica. In May 2021, she told everyone she would sing at a big party in June 2022, her first time singing in two years. Then, in June 2021, she sent a message on her computer saying her new song, “Solar Power”, would come out in 2021. 

The song came out in June, and her album with the same name came out in August, but some people disliked it. In September 2021, she made a mini-album called “Te Ao Mārama”, sung in a unique language from New Zealand called “Te Reo Māori”. The money she makes from this mini-album goes to help groups in New Zealand. In August 2023, Lorde sang two new songs at a party in England.
