LNA & MUSIC
Honest tunes with awkward dance moves.
LNA's style can be described as a chill house (Organic/Deep/Tropical/Progressive House) rooted in both Nordic and classical influences. In her music, she combines organic, acoustic, and electronic sounds into beautiful and melodic compositions. LNA is known for using violin, saxophone, synths, mellow vocals, and House beats as the main elements whilst exploring modern dance music sounds together with 80's and 90's vibes. With a unique blend of skills, she also produces, mixes, and masters her own music.
Raised in an environment of art, she learned not to be scared of constantly pushing the boundaries of genres to explore new sounds in production and songwriting. In her Spotify, you will see the journey LNA has taken as an artist and a producer. The first album ”Kasvutarina” was written between the ages of 17 to 25, after which she produced the album only knowing audio tech for a couple of years. Since then, her style has evolved through the years from electropop to house music and EDM worlds. Now she has found a home in the Chill House, finally feeling like she is making music she truly loves.
When performing live, LNA uses Ableton Live & Push, expertly blending instruments, electronic violin, vocals, and synthesizers to create captivating experiences for her audiences.
As a Finnish artist who spent over a decade in the UK, LNA skillfully incorporates language and culture into her music, infusing her lyrics with bilingual expressions that add a unique depth to her compositions.
