Leony is a very talented and young singer songwriter from Germany. Yet even before she could walk, Leony was headed somewhere else – and music was going to take her there. Her life has been building towards a chance to make sense of the one constant in her life; connecting to others with music.
As Leony explains, “When you play a song to people that you’ve written, and they say ‘I’m getting goosebumps,’ it’s the best feeling... because you’ve reached out to people, and what you’ve created makes them feel something. That’s why I do it; to make people feel something, or to make them feel what we feel with music.”
Music has already sent Leony out of rural Germany to America, the U.K., and Australia – song-writing and recording with The Kennel (The Chainsmokers and The Veronicas), Billy Steinberg (Madonna’s ‘Like A Virgin,’ Demi Lovato’s ‘Give Your Heart A Break’), and Shelly Peiken (Christina Aguilera). Songwriter-singer Gavin Jones called Leony “a magnet to writers” because “once you write with her you want to do more sessions”.
Her debut effort, the sweetly simple ‘Surrender,’ was co-written by Leony, Will Simms and Grace Tither, and produced by Will Simms. The melody sprung from a guitar part Leony strummed in the studio, and took less than an hour to come together.
