Story

Leila grew up with a rigorous background in academics - she began taking college courses in high school, she thrived in accelerated honors philosophy programs, started her first business at the age of 12 and was asked to tutor mathematics at a college when she was only 14 years old. She loved and excelled in school. When she was 13 she went to her first concert and had the epiphany that music could be an achievable career if she was willing to work hard for it. She began obsessively writing songs trying to hone in on her thoughts and express them poetically. She spent her summers at home teaching herself guitar and piano. She graduated high school at 17 and landed her first modeling job for Adidas’ global print campaign shortly after. She got accepted to the University of Southern California because of her scholastic merit but turned down that acceptance to pursue a career in music. She moved to LA with no connections and undeveloped talent but relentlessly pursued her craft to develop mastery over her voice, musicianship and songwriting. She believes in destiny and that her’s is to share truth & hope with the world through intentional and impactful pop music.
