In 2015, Kate Perry herself tweeted that the Swedish artist LÉON was someone to keep an eye on. And Perry was right, because today LEÓN is a washable international superstar. Or how about a total of over 800 million streams and almost five million monthly listeners on Spotify? Why is not so difficult to understand. LÉON, or Lotta Lindgren as she is actually called, has a voice that sounds like it has lived hundreds of lives. As melancholy as it is hopeful, it leads the listener through self-doubt and broken hearts and the soulful pop music breathes 60s as well as 80s without even for a moment losing its anchorage with the contemporary.
Stockholmer LÉON had an immediate impact with the single ‘Tired of Talking’ in 2015 and has since managed to deliver the piece with every release. The self-titled debut album arrived in 2019 and already the following year came the sequel ‘Apart’. With the new album ‘Circles’ (2022), she has managed to take her powerfully tender pop to even higher heights and it is with that in her back that LÉON comes to Berns and The Ballroom for a concert on August 19th, tickets out now!
