Bleu Stroud, Trainwreck Review
Bleu Stroud started playing guitar and wrote her first song at the age of eight. As a shy and introverted child who was often bullied for being quiet, Bleu found both solace and her voice in songwriting. Music as a creative and emotional outlet became an integral part of Bleu’s life. As Bleu grew into her teen years, her writing evolved with personal narratives focused on love, pain, trusting one’s self, enduring hope and acceptance — universally relatable themes. The now 18 -year old Bleu Stroud’s music reflects the distinctively laid-back, LA-centric singer-songwriter vibe of her hometown. Evoking comparisons to Jewel and Joni Mitchell, Bleu is a gifted songwriter with a silky, melodic voice. With no formal training, the multi-instrumentalist also plays guitar, 12 string guitar, ukulele, banjo and piano. With the help of Producer Mark Dutton, Bleu is recording her debut full-length album (due out early 2019) that will feature 10 original songs all written and performed by Bleu. Until then listeners can enjoy “Trainwreck,” Stroud’s latest single.
Release Date: March 15, 2019
Stroud has a mature and balanced voice that resonates like a freight train.
