Lennon Stella is an Ontario-born, Nashville-based singer, songwriter, actress, and multi-instrumentalist. She gained nearly half a billion streams in a year, and was listed among Refinery29’s “Young Celebrities to Watch in 2019," Teen Vogue’s “16 Musicians You Need to Be Listening to in 2019,” and Amazon Music’s 2020 Artists to Watch. Stella rose to popularity at age 12 as part of Lennon & Maisy, performing alongside her younger sister, Maisy. Gaining national attention with a 2012 cover of Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend,” Lennon & Maisy achieved viral popularity to the tune of 100 million-plus YouTube views and just shy of 800,000 subscribers. Stella went on to star in the ABC/CMT series Nashville as Maddie Conrad for six years. In 2018, she lent her voice to Jonas Blue’s “Polaroid” with Liam Payne, which clocked 200 million total streams. Kickstarting her solo career, the songstress introduced a singular style on her 2018 EP, Love, Me. It reached the top five on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart as the single “La Di Da” amassed more than 90 million Spotify streams and counting. After selling out dates on her first North American headline tour, she shared the stage with Anne-Marie and recently supported the Chainsmokers and 5SOS. She also lent her voice to “Takeaway” by the Chainsmokers and Illenium, which received more than 100 million Spotify streams and 37 million views in under eight weeks.
