Elizabeth Woolridge Grant better known by her stage name Lana Del Rey, is an American singer-songwriter and entrepreneur. Born in New York City and raised in Lake Placid, Del Rey moved back to her hometown at age 18, where she attended college and began writing music and performing in clubs. She signed her first recording contract when she was 20 years old, but got dropped by the label, resulting in her first album being shelved. Later, after producer David Kahne heard Del Rey\'s demo, she got signed to 5 Points Records and released her first studio album Lana Del Ray A.K.A. Lizzy Grant in 2010. After parting her ways with Kahne, she got signed to Stranger Records to release her debut single \"Video Games\" in June 2011. A few months later, Del Rey signed a joint deal with Interscope and Polydor, where she released her second studio album Born to Die in January 2012. She is currently recording her third studio album, set for release in November.
Del Rey\'s music has been noted for its cinematic sound and its references to various aspects of pop culture, particularly that of 1950s and \'60s Americana. The singer has been described as a \"self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra\". Del Rey is also signed to NEXT Model Management.
