Leona Berlin

Performer

Musically Leona Berlin packs her view of the world into atmospherically dense neo soul with jazzy influences and poppy structures, with additional traces of R’n’B, soul and hip-hop. The Süddeutsche Zeitung summed it up after one of her concerts in Munich: “As a singer she masters everything you need for soul: a crystal-clear voice that is also powerful and strong, with the necessary shot of blackness and toughness. As needed, she uses a blues timbre, funk-shout or pop vocals, always flawlessly intoned and perfectly phrased.” What this means specifically can be felt in every single note of every single song of her debut album Leona Berlin. She says: “My songs are about me, my outlook on life, my feelings and experiences – and the issues, difficulties and discoveries related to these. I would like to give the listener the freedom to delve in as deeply as they want and to take away as much as they want, without forcing anything on anybody.”
