LÉON made a splash in 2015 with a softly glowing contemporary pop sound. It evoked classic sounds of the '60s and '80s without being entrenched in the past.
The Stockholm, Sweden native, a daughter of musicians, fronted a band as a teenager and watched her career accelerate as a solo artist after she began to work with producer Agrin Rahmani. In 2015, at the age of 21, she made her proper debut with "Tired of Talking," a single with a sweet melodic hook that belied the lyrics' assertive character. The more uptempo "Nobody Cares," a song in which LÉON sang of having trouble letting go of a relationship, followed shortly after that and led the way to an EP, Treasure, which contained both of the singles and two new songs. Her For You EP arrived in early 2017. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
