Judy Leia is a Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter creating cinematic darkpop that incorporates her ethereal, sultry vocals into a hybrid production of orchestral instruments with suspenseful drum and electronic elements. Her unique sound can be described as: "Enya meets Lana Del Rey in a Halo soundtrack."
The eldest daughter of Taiwanese-American parents, she began learning piano at age 5 and wrote her first song at age 11 to process trauma as a war survivor. This experience often informs the haunting melodies and somber lyrics in her songs. She enjoys finding inspiration in classical music, Broadway, and film scores with favorite composers that include Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Alan Menken, Max Richter, Hans Zimmer, and Daft Punk.
Judy Leia is currently in the studio creating more songs for 2021 releases.
