As an ambient solo artist, LEILA has released 4 albums under her name, and has collaborated with countless others. LEILA has performed at Hopscotch Music Festival in 2016, SFEMF reception in 2018, Northwest Terror Fest in 2022, and has toured internationally. Combining electronics, acoustic instruments, voice and field recordings, Leila creates an overall atmosphere of introspection, accessing what is often unconscious and obscured by the human condition: songs are not so much composed as captured from dreams. Evoking haunting and desolate places, a private world is exposed, where time and space are distilled down to what remain of distant memories and hidden emotions, melded into a symphony of ethereal melancholy.
