ising Swedish singer LÉON hit the stage at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles Monday night, days after dropping her brand new EP, “Surround Me” (Columbia Records). Fans lined the walls of the theatre to sway, sing, and cry along to LÉON’s set. Moments of laughter occurred between songs as LÉON attempted to lighten the mood by literally kicking her shoes off after the first song. She also joked about how depressing her lyrics could get at times.

Singer-songwriter Wrabel opened up the evening with a grand, emotive set of raw vocals and a piano. One of the most intimate moments happened during the performance of “The Village,” where he shared the story behind the ballad. After meeting two young trans-people who were comfortable with their identity—in a period of history still so hostile toward the LGBTQ community. He later joined LÉON on stage for a duet of her song “Think About You.” They wrote it together.

Check out some moments from the show in our gallery. Lastly, if you aren’t familiar with LÉON, give her new “Surround Me” extended play a spin below.
