Mississippi-bred, LA-based Brett McLaughlin, aka LELAND, is the songwriter behind many of your favorite pop gems of the past few years, including most of the standouts on Troye Sivan’s debut Blue Neighbourhood (including the hit “Youth”) plus “My My My!” and “The Good Side,” the new singles from Troye’s forthcoming sophomore album. Leland also penned a majority of Daya’s stunning debut Sit Still, Look Pretty, Martin Garrix and Troye Sivan’s “There for You,” Sabrina Carpenter’s “Why” and Selena Gomez and Gucci Mane’s “Fetish,” to name a few. In 2017, Leland released “Mattress,” an “anthem about unrequited queer love set against soaring electro-pop production” Out Magazine) which solidified him as a budding pop artist in his own right. Leland is also a composer and is executive producing several film soundtracks out this summer, all while continuing his ro(le as one of the music composers for RuPaul’s Drag Race.

LELAND will be releasing more music and touring this spring!
