Dublin, County Dublin
Just back from recording her debut E.P in LA, she plans to release 'Dance with Diamonds' later this year. In her music she likes to merge soulful & emotive songs with elements of blues, rock, pop, fairy-tale/folk, voodoo and adventure. Her unique blue-eyed soulful voice, coupled with her quirky style of combining poetry and music find her favourably compared to Chrissie Hynde Marianne Faithful and Patti Smith.
She has performed in the Spiegeltent, The Bord Gais Energy Theatre, The Olympia Theatre and also in The Cork Opera House. For three consecutive years she performed at the Electric Picnic Festival. She just recently played at the Galway Arts Festival.
Outside of Ireland, Leni has had several gigs in London’s Slaughtered Lamb; it is here that she put on a memorable showcase for The Beggar Group. This led to making recordings with cutting edge, 4AD engineer, Ed Horrox. Her debut single was remixed and mastered in the UK. She has received airplay on BBC's Radio 6, her song Calico has been selected as a semi-finalist in the International Song writing Competition, judged by one of her heroes, Tom Waits amongst others. She has recently been aired on RTE’s Radio Player, Radio Na Life and Beat FM. Her website features her video for her single ‘Spindle’. You can hear her latest LA recordings along with some live tracks on her soundcloud page. This emerging talent is sure to leave you mesmerized and bewitched.
