The softness of ‘Cordelia’ by the LA-based singer/songwriter Posie brings out the whimsical aspect of what could be a modern-day Romeo & Juliet. Posie’s soaring sheer vocals take you on a ride of exploring feminity and escapism while starting the next chapter of her unfurling story.
Under the moniker Posie, Jessica Flamand translates her inner observations and poems into a fusion of classic rock and folk with modern pop stylings. Posie’s career path is no surprise; she’s always been writing and playing the guitar as a little girl.
From an early age, getting off her artistic instincts, she knew it was about the hours you put in. After countless sessions of experimenting with different sounds combined with her poetry, she’s got it. At only 17-years-old, Posie released her first EP, “The Lost Years.”
Today, Posie is a storyteller, multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, taking inspiration from Stevie Nicks, Joni Mitchell, and Lauren Marling. As much as she wanted to leave ‘Cordelia’ open to interpretation, Posie shares a little backstory:
“Think medieval princess in Los Angeles vibes. I love to use female names for titles, and Cordelia had been on my mind for a few years; when we started to work on the melody and structure, it all clicked into place quickly. Cordelia is the name of one of the daughters in Shakespeare’s King Lear.”
