Lena Leon is a critically acclaimed singer, producer, audio engineer and songwriter from New York City. Having quickly become one of the go-to vocalists and songwriters for some of the biggest producers and DJs in the dance scene, Leon is now showing the world who she is an artist. She confides, “People can always sense when a song comes genuinely from the heart, and that’s when I realized I had a voice and wanted to share it with the world’’.
Growing up, Leon soon developed an addiction to catchy pop music and it led to an obsession of crafting the perfect pop song. After being introduced to dance music in high school, she was drawn to the soaring melodies and powerful drops. These two genres truly helped define her musical style. She reveals, “I would describe my sound as club pop! I really just wanted to make the music I wanted to hear, because I felt as though there wasn’t enough of it out there! I have such a love for dance and pop music and wanted to find a cool way to fuse the two together. Who doesn’t want a fun pop song they can dance to on a night out?!” Leon uses life experiences to form personal and authentic music which people can relate to. “It’s important to me that all my music is fun, but lyrically have an underlying powerful message. At the end of the day I just want to make fun dance pop music that people can enjoy”, expresses the songwriter.
Leading single ‘Walls’ featuring Andy Tongren (Young Rising Sons) highlights captivating melodies, powerful percussion and vibrant soundscapes. The single evokes an uplifting and happy anthem, while the theme of the song contradicts the sound, narrating the heartache of a break-up. The songstress explains, “Walls represents both the walls of the room the couple lived in together and the walls they created between themselves. The lyrics tell a story of two people packing their bags, and moving out of the place they lived together after they’ve decided it wasn’t working out between them”. Woven throughout the song is a message that teases the truth that would be revealed if only the walls could talk.
As a proud female audio engineer and mixer, Leon is on a mission to help empower other women to conquer their fears and learn how to self-record. Leon has also cemented herself as a force in the songwriting world, penning songs for major artists including Tiesto, Deorro and Spencer Ludwig, to name a few. Having already racked up millions of plays on Spotify for her songs, as well as reaching #1 on the charts around the globe, Lena Leon is continuing her impressive musical journey with the release of ‘Walls’ currently available worldwide.
