In The Spotlight

Mackenzie Leighton – “Florist By Day”

Originally from the United States, this indie-folk singer and songwriter spent her childhood playing classical piano and, after a move to New York, played in several folk, jazz and indie-pop bands. Now based in Paris, she works as a florist in everyday life. Inspired by the music of Simon & Garfunkel and Vampire Weekend and compared to Joni Mitchell, she debuted with her self-titled EP in 2017.

Opening up in her honest lyrics about wishing that music could be all she needs in life, rather than selling flowers during the day, her new single is deeply personal and radiates hope. Taken from her new album “Fleuriste”, she’s shaped a delicious, laid-back sound by blending folk, pop and jazz into something unique. With a sweaty electric guitar and sunlit beat, this is a bubbly, retro-touched gem.
