R&B Inspiration

R&B Inspiration

Of course Lorde has been influenced by various genres such as Dark Wave, Ambient, Electronica, Art Pop, indie Pop, Minimal and Synthpop. She was also influenced by Rock artists such as Cat Stevens, Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac. However, classic R&B artists such as Etta James and Otis Redding were some of her influences. It is not a coincidence that these artists played a vital part in laying the foundation for R&B.
