about Leena Ojala
Leena is a 19-year old singer songwriter who has written, performed and recorded a number of her own acoustic tracks which she describes as ‘stories I like to tell through music’. Leena picked up the guitar when she was a 16-year old living in a small town but has since moved to London where she finds the music scene full of variety, influences and amazing people involved in music. Her track No Holding Me Back tells the very story of this transition.
Leena uses her voice to great effect – she has a broad range which she demonstrates in her songs. Unique, distinctive, unusual, powerful and original are some of the words that have been used to describe her voice.
Leena has collaborated with DJ Skunk from Portugal and DJ Cut & Slice from Finland to produce her debut electronic tracks. Leena initially produced an acoustic track of Move Your Body and then collaborated with DJ Skunk who provided a remix of the track into an 80’s style dance track. London Rave was produced in collaboration with DJ Cut & Slice, who provided the original music and mix, whereas Leena came up with the lyrics, melody and vocals for the track.
Leena identifies with a broad range of genres varying from Country, Blues, R&B, Jazz to Pop through the ages and more recently the electronic dance music. Her influences are ‘too many to mention; there are so many great artists around and I would not want to mention some with leaving other great ones out’. Leena enjoys making music and experimenting with different styles and genres. ‘I am surrounded by a number of great musicians who all have a different dimension to their music’.
Leena has been doing open mic nights around London for some time and since having written enough of her own material, she is now performing in small venues around London to feature her material. Leena is just starting to work on her first album, which will be released by the end of this year.
