Lenii’s musical life began when she took up classical violin at just 4 years old. By the time she was 7, she’d learn to play both piano and guitar. Two years later, she wrote her first song in her Grandmother’s house. “Growing up in Ireland, there was always a culture of music and poetry”, remembers Lenii.
At 15, Lenii left home and moved to NYC to learn music production and DJing – subsequently spending years in the electronic music scene and featuring as a singer and producer on multiple dance records. Now based in Brooklyn, Lenii has found a home in the New York songwriting community. Over the past few years, she has written and produced for many developing and established acts. She also placed second in the International Songwriting Competition. Currently, Lenii is featured on Zack Martino’s ‘Crave U’, which had been in the works for several years until Martino saw the record take shape during his live masterclass for Armada University.
Influenced by artists like Amy Winehouse, the Cranberries, Leonard Cohen and Eminem, Lenii is ready for an unforgettable 2020. Her new release ‘Cereal’ was born after Lenii had her first love disappointment and when an old friends swooped in thinking she was up for grabs. This song talks about ‘teenage drama’ and Lenii wants to describe how girls feel when they’re treated like objects.
