Nashville star Lennon Stella goes back to her roots for SWG3 show

Evening Times - - TIMES OUT - BY STACEY MULLEN

NASHVILLE star Lennon Stella will get to ex­plore her Scot­tish an­ces­try when she plays Glas­gow’s SWG3 next month.

The tal­ented Cana­dian star revealed her mum’s side of the fam­ily hail from Scot­land.

And although she has never been, her first head­lin­ing Euro­pean tour will bring her to Scot­tish soil on Fe­bru­ary 24.

“I am so ex­cited. I have not been be­fore,” she beamed.

She con­tin­ued: “I know my mum’s side of the fam­ily is Scot­tish – that is the ex­tent of it.

“I am ex­cited to go around. I can’t wait, the ac­cent is my favourite.”

She added: “I need to make a bucket list of things. I just want to be able to ex­plore this time be­cause last time I was trav­el­ling around, it is kinda hard to find time dur­ing the day on tour.

“I am go­ing to make sure priority to go and ex­plore.”

Ex­plor­ing Europe might be high on Lennon’s agenda but so is de­vel­op­ing her sound as she pre­pares to re­lease her de­but al­bum this year.

At 20-years-old, Lennon is pre­par­ing to show­case her sound to the world af­ter im­press­ing with her vo­cals as Mad­die Con­rad for six years on the hit TV show Nashville.

She said: “It was such a big part of my life. I def­i­nitely miss it and I miss the peo­ple.”

She added: “Hav­ing mu­sic in a it is a full al­bum that is out in the world that I hear peo­ple singing back to me is go­ing to be so ful­fill­ing.

“I have been given more time to re­ally lock in and de­velop what I want to do and don’t want to do.

“The free­dom of hav­ing a bunch of songs and be­ing able to get cre­ative with dif­fer­ent sounds and how I want things to flow and all that. It has been very very cool just to ex­pe­ri­ence that.”

Lennon gave a taste of her sound with sin­gle Kiss­ing Other Peo­ple. She also col­lab­o­rated with The

Chainsmok­ers and Il­le­nium on Take­away as well as Jonas Blue and Liam Payne on Po­laroid.

And hope­fully, her fans will get to hear some of those tracks when she plays the city’s SWG3.

“It’s cool hav­ing peo­ple mes­sag­ing me from around the world say­ing that they have tick­ets to the show. This is my first time head­lin­ing a tour and it is a lot of fun. I’m just ex­cited to be out on my own. I love the Euro­pean crowd.” Lennon Stella plays SWG3 on Fe­bru­ary 24. I have been given more time to re­ally lock in and de­velop what I want to do and don’t want to do
