Elizabeth Woolridge Grant (born June 21, 1986), better known by her stage name Lana Del Rey, is an American singer-songwriter. She has been described as a “self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra”, and cites Britney Spears, Elvis Presley and Kurt Cobain amongst her musical influences. Del Rey possesses a contralto vocal range.

Del Rey’s major-label debut album, Born to Die, debuted at number one in seven countries, including the United Kingdom and Australia. The album has spawned two worldwide top 10 hits: “Video Games” and “Born to Die”.

Grant was born in New York City and grew up in Lake Placid, New York. When she was 15, she attended Kent School, a boarding school in Connecticut. She is the daughter of domain investor Rob Grant, who supported her in her early career as a singer. Del Rey attended Fordham University in New York City. Lana said in a Vogue interview, “I wanted a name I could shape the music towards [...] I was going to Miami quite a lot at the time, speaking a lot of Spanish with my friends from Cuba – Lana Del Rey reminded us of the glamour of the seaside. It sounded gorgeous coming off the tip of the tongue.”
