Leilani Wolfgramm’s New Single: “Adrian” Background:

Now signed with Silverback Management, Leilani has been in the studio recording with new producers working on her sophomore album, Bipolar. These producers include Sham Joseph who has produced and co-written tracks such as “Man Down” by Rihanna and “Who Gon Stop Me” by Kanye West and Jay-Z. She’s also been working with Yeti Beats and veteran Reggae producer Don Corleone.

While we wait for more details on the release of Bipolar, which is projected to drop sometime after summer, Wolfgramm decided to release her new song “Adrian” to The Pier as our MP3 Leak of the Week.

Leilani tells The Pier: “Adrian is a song I wrote when I wanted to give up. It’s a reminder to fight for what you want, even after you fail trying. As long as your heart is still beating, the flame is still lit, the fire is not out. Stay focused, believe in yourself and enjoy the struggle; it’s all part of it.”

The chorus of “Adrian” was written while in the car as a freestyle before going home to write the verse. The song would later be produced by Rome Ramirez of Sublime With Rome after meeting Rome through her longtime friend and video producer, Jay Tauzin, who produced Rome’s music video for “Terrorista.”

Leilani explains: “We started vibing at Rome’s house in SoCal and I told him I had a weird idea for a song. I played the hook for him on my guitar and he was inspired. We got to work immediately and after a bottle of jack, and a lot of weed, we finished the song in one night.”

After releasing her debut record Rebel in 2014 with E.N Young producing songs, she created multiple music videos with Tauzin, while cold-calling Hawaiian radio stations, concert promoters and was subsequently denied at every turn.

“I thought about all the times I’ve heard ‘no’ and how many times I felt like giving up and going back home to my family in Orlando,” Wolfgramm explains. “I had stopped music for years because when I was younger, I made it up to showcases and meeting with the labels; then everything was dropped. It left me feeling jaded with the industry at a young age. I played for years in Orlando, doing bar gigs. I thought about not having money and not having a car — I had to take gigs in Orlando to find a way to survive while being able to perform. Really just playing my guitar for gas money and a couple of drink tickets. I also thought about my mom and dad living in a tent in Hawaii raising my brothers. All of these things gave me strength to keep pushing.”

“Adrian” is the result of this experience with the song playing as a new anthem for embracing the struggle to persevere in your fight for success. As the lyrics say: “Fight like Rocky, watch me ‘Yo Adrian!’”

Download a FREE MP3 of “Adrian” on the homepage of ThePier.org by April 23rd and be on the look out for more music videos and the release of another single, “Sinner,” later this year. In the meantime, you can find the rest of Leilani Wolfgramm’s music on iTunes by clicking HERE!

Leilani Wolfgramm is a roots-pop-reggae singer-songwriter from Orlando, Florida. For some rock-reggae fans, she is new to the ever-growing scene. But, for others—especially fans of Hor!zen —- Wolfgramm is a familiar face, and name. She got her start in 2011 playing alongside her brothers in the dub-reggae band, Hor!zen. In 2013, Wolfgramm jumped into a solo career with the release of the 8-track EP, I Burn. In the summer of 2014, she teamed up with producer E.N Young to release her debut full length album, Rebel.

She’s gearing up for her first headlining tour in Hawaii in mid May sponsored by KandyPens. Although she’s opened up acoustically for Incubus and The Common Kings at the Republik, this will be the first time traveling to Hawaii with her band.
