19-year-old Tel Aviv based singer-songwriter Lia D’sau premieres her new video today on The Hollywood Times.
“During my teenage years, like everyone, I went through a whole array of emotions and thoughts. One of them was the duality between wanting to grow up and fearing growing old. This is what this song is about. Naturally, I thought of using videos of me as a child and growing up. I found all the videos on my family’s computer and edited them, it was a whole different experience making this video 2 years after writing the song, since now, I am almost twenty and feeling quite differently about growing up and getting older.” Lia D’sau said about the video.
The Hollywood Times is delighted to premiere her new video today. What a great way to incorporate her home videos with her single “1983.” ENJOY!

Born in Tel Aviv, and moving to the US and back all until she was 5 years old, Lia didn’t fit in at school. The language barrier made her different to the other kids and she wasn’t accepted. This led to her finding her refuge in the music room, and figuring out her identity by performing at the school events from as young as 7 years old. Growing up in a musical family, with her mom a former dancer and her dad a former boy band member, Lia had music around her from very young age. Even though she knew she wanted to be a musician, Lia didn’t start creating her own music until she was 14. She knew she didn’t want to sing other people’s songs, other people’s stories. She had a lot to say and to sing about channeling her sadness and feelings of loneliness, depression and difference into her music.
At that point, she wanted to get away from everything she knew, to leave her bubble and travelled to New York City by herself, to attend a music camp. This experience was eye opening for Lia as she turned a new leaf socially and finally found herself and her sound helping her create happy, hopeful music, as well as widened her love for song writing. However, after coming home Lia realized her talent was still raw and premature to start releasing music.
