Lorelei K is an artist, musician and poet from Dallas, Texas, known for composing and performing avant-pop with arresting vocals. She established herself as a premiere solo artist in North Texas with ​Be The Doll ​in late 2017 and was delivered to listeners across the United States as support for The Sound of Animals Fighting the next year.
Soon after the release of ​Be The Doll,​ Lorelei K was deemed an ​artist to watch for​ in ​D Magazine​: “To hear the songs live is to experience a liberating merge of fantasy and intense vulnerability … as each anthem for suppressed loveliness ends, something is palpably freed.”

The ​Dallas Observer​ praised Lorelei K’s many contributions to the North Texas scene, which she pushes forward as a sought-after improviser, an organizer who brings queer and trans talent to the light with her, and a collaborator with a singular gift for directing projects both sonically and visually. “​The continual effort to venture into uncharted waters and creative maturity has been a central theme … and we are only witnessing the beginning of it,” Garrett Gravely wrote.

Lorelei K took home six Denton Arts & Music Awards in 2019, including Best New Act, Best Lyricist and Best Vocalist. She was nominated for Best New Act in the 2018 Dallas Observer Music Awards. ​An improvised experimental collaboration with Paul Slavens called ​Lorelei K x Kill the World ​was released as an EP in 2019.
A sense of primal breakthrough is the throughline from Lorelei K’s first album to the second, Lightbender,​ out ​now. The voice that first hushed crowds with full-throated longing and elegant range meets listeners with new restraint. Long-players flourish into surprising territory: “Eidelon” is a pulsing descent into metal with blades of straightforward guitar; “Sentimental interest” follows Cocteau Twins-like dream logic in a gentle flex of compositional intuition.

Trap-leaning beats and moments punctuated with R&B prove true what Lorelei K’s debut suggested: she can lace any genre with epicism. A longtime mind-meld with producer/engineer Michael Briggs brings Denton’s most prolific and hardest-working artists together for another record.

The themes of rebirth on ​Lightbender followed Lorelei K’s ascension to her own power, shared on stages across the United States ​over two tours with Rosegarden Funeral Party throughout Fall and Winter of 2019 to 2020.

“If purity is a place, that’s where I want to take you,” Knowles sings on “White Dress.” Lightbender g​enerates a purifying heat — simplicity reduced from abundance on fire.
