Ari Staprans Leff (born August 8, 1994), known professionally as Lauv, is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, best known for his compilation album Met You When I Was 18 (The Playlist), which was released in 2018. His debut album, How I’m Feeling, was released on March 6, 2020, and debuted at number 16 on the US Billboard 200. Lauv has also written songs for other artists including the singles “Boys” by Charli XCX, “No Promises” by Cheat Codes and Demi Lovato and “Imperfections” by Celine Dion. Leff began writing music at an early age. When he was 12, he started his first rock duo with his friend Mike Wagenheim, and by age 13, the two teens started a metal band. After starting to try and write music, Leff began experimenting with an acoustic guitar and some synth sounds. A few months later, he wrote his own solo acoustic song called Parting Ways. Leff then formed his first solo music project, Somersault Sunday, when he was 14 years old on April 28, 2008. He started it first “as a side project, just for fun,” but continued it after receiving an enthusiastic online response. Here are all of Lauv’s albums ranked.

2. I Met You When I Was 18 (2018)
“I love this album. If you played the whole album i would be able to tell which songs it is and all the lyrics. I am a super fan of Lauv. I love him and his music. I met you when I was 18 is amazing.”
1. ~How I’m Feeling~ (2020)
“I was very impressed and happy to hear some live bass anchor “Canada”, and the track “i’m so tired…” is also a very good mid album highlight, but the biggest problem is that, outside of a couple of moments, this album does deviate very much from the formula outlined by “Mean It” the rest of the way. Outside of a couple piano ballads to end the album, it does crawl its way to the conclusion.”
