Introducing enigmatic newcomer, Leena Ojala. Born in Germany to a Finnish father and English mother, Leena was raised in Hong Kong and Essex before settling down in London. 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 spent six months in Berlin absorbing all the city 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 found her sound, and is now preparing for the release of her debut EP, appropriately titled EP1. Listen to the EP's first single, "Why" below and stay tuned for the single's accompanying music video coming soon.
