Berlin-based singer and producer LEONA BERLIN inspires with her atmospherically dense alternative R'n'B. Inspired by her roots in hip-hop and soul, she moves across stylistic boundaries with natural ease and creates her own sound universe. "My biggest priority is to be authentic without having to fit into a box. I think that especially in today's social media-dominated times, more depth and honesty are needed again." She writes and produces her songs herself, influenced and supported by her closest team. With her unique style, her passionate vocals and her open manner, she opens a deep insight into her world for the listener.
After Leona released her debut album "Leona Berlin" (Warner Music) in 2018, several singles followed, including "Wrong Lane" feat. Snoop Dogg and "High Life" feat. Sedric Perry. Other international artists she has collaborated with include Ray Angry (The Roots), Casey Benjamin (Robert Glasper Experiment), Gregory Hutchinson and Karriem Riggins.
Leona's most recent release is her new album "Change" (Nov 2021), which was voted into the 1/2022 "Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik" (PdSK) best list.
Leona has performed live on various stages and festivals (including Women of the World Festival, TEDx, Xjazz Festival), as well as support act for Al Jarreau, PJ Morton and Lisa Stansfield, among others.
