Out on Nov 16th is the debut single from Leonora, “First winter”. The song will be available from iTunes and other download portals worldwide.
Israeli-born Leonora is an eclectic mix of Israeli passion and New Jersey attitude, who showed early promise as a songwriter, penning her first song as a prodigious five-year-old growing up in the States where she moved with her family as a baby. Returning to her Israeli roots as a teenager, the New Jersey vibe stayed with Leonora and led her to diversify from her ambitions as a saxophonist of seven years standing and to explore other musical directions.
Strumming on a guitar to accompany herself, Leonora began to develop her own unique sound and it was her self-taught skills on the guitar rather than the previously favoured saxophone that began to breathe real life into her captivating lyrics. Leonora was finding her niche and began to showcase her talent as a singer/songwriter in local bars by the age of 19.
Her creativity was further stretched during this period through a degree course in Film & Communications, but it was apparent where Leonora’s true passions remained as she eventually formed a band in 2008 and toured the country, performing pop/rock sets to packed bars. With demos distributed around Israel, Leonora began to receive airplay and recording success was within reach.
It was love that would finally bring Leonora’s dream to fruition as she moved to Germany following her marriage. Determined not to give up on her musical ambitions, she embarked on a solo career with demos and solo gigs around Germany receiving phenomenal feedback and leading to her introduction to 9a Music.
Leonora is now working on her debut album and promises to hit the music scene with a vibrant international sound.
