Born in Germany to a Finnish father and English mother Leena was raised in Hong Kong and Essex before decamping to London aged 17. Influenced by the likes of London Grammar, Rae Morris and Florence and the Machine, Leena – an obsessive about her music - took her time experimenting with her sound, honing and tweaking. She was in no hurry. She knew what she was after.
Leena went to Berlin - a city renowned for it’s anarchic creativity – and spent six months absorbing all it had to offer, using that as inspiration in her music and her lyrics. A final stint in a dingy studio back in south London, reworking bits here and there and she knew she’d finally nailed her sound. ‘EP1’ is her first offering.
Leena will be playing for live shows in the autumn…dates to be announced in due course.
