18-year-old singer-songwriter, Lia D’Sau has released her debut single, “Manboy”! Out now!

Born and raised in Tel Aviv, Israel, D’Sau explores her thoughts on womanhood, relationships, and social issues with maturity and curiosity, using music as her inspiration.

She wants her listeners to know that her songwriting is a declaration.

“Having other people write songs for me seemed daunting, terrible. I’ve been taught to look deeper at the world since I was a child, and I have things I want to say.”

Growing up, Lia listened to her parents favorite R&B records as her father was a former boy band member himself!

She began singing when she was just 8 years old and at the age of 15, she attended music camp in New York City.

Lia has blended her love of indie and R&B that she was raised on in her new single.

With 11,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, she is taking charge of what she wants the world, and fans, to hear with her music.

Date a man, not a boy.

I wrote this song when I was 17 and had broken up with this guy I was seeing. My friend and I were talking about how I needed to start dating men, and not boys, so that’s how I came up with the term, “Manboy”. I was hurt from what had happened in our relationship and just laid out our entire timeline for the verses of the song. Writing it ended up becoming a therapeutic way to have closure around what happened, and doing that on my own.”
