London-based singer-songwriter Leena Voxx captivates with her electro-natural pop sound, infusing big melodies and vocals with emotional lyrics. She has time and again received recognition for her vocals, melodies and passionate performance. Leena has been supported by the likes of CLASH MAGAZINE, The 405, THE FADER, Lady Gunn, EarMilk, Atmosphere Radio, Atlantic Radio, VULTURE HOUND and many others.
Some of the current female artists Leena identifies with are Halsey, Sia, Camila Cabello, Mahalia and MØ. Leena is working on new material and has more releases coming up this year.

Leena’s sound has been remixed by FILIP MOTOVUNSKI & VEGAS, KERFO, KØLA, D/R/U/G/S and SATURDAY/MONDAY. She is currently writing new material and recording new music with Kerfo. ANDREW KINGSLOW produced her latest track ‘My Hair’ which came out in November 2020.
Leena stayed away for two years to focus on getting her new sound out for 2020. At the start of the year, she rebranded as Leena Voxx and has released a number of tracks this year, some with remixes. Her track ‘Right Here’ climbed to no. 8 in the Music Week Club Charts this summer.
Leena wanted to play her new electronic music and perform in festivals this summer, but given where the world is today she has had to readjust like all the artists. During April and May she rediscovered her love for the acoustic guitar and streamed live sessions on Facebook every week, including an appearance on the Music Crowns platform where she racked more than 30,000 views over two days.
“I was the tallest and the most quiet girl in the school yard. I found it hard to put words together. I felt I had no voice outside of home.
I used to sing karaoke like all kids my age did, I was part of the school choir and I remember doing a solo performance of Christina Aguilera’s ‘Beautiful’ at school when I was 14. Singing in front of hundreds of students, teachers and parents was a big deal at the time, and it gave me a push to do more with my voice.
I was forever trying to imitate the sound and emotion of big female vocalists such as Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, Whitney Houston, Kate Bush, etc until my throat was hurting. It wasn’t until I was 16 when I picked up an old Spanish guitar from the loft and started playing it when I first thought I should really get more into music. I picked up the basics and wrote my first song within weeks. I was lucky to meet a great guitarist who became my guitar teacher. Singing lessons helped me adopt the right technique, fix my throat and extend my vocal range.
I am still quiet but feel that I have found my voice through music. I write, produce and perform electronic music. I am passionate about developing my voice further and I see vocals as my primary instrument. I want my voice heard, recognised and the vocals kept natural.”
