Leena Ojala is a London-based singer-songwriter and producer. She has received press coverage from the likes of The 405, The Fader, Clash Magazine, Idol Magazine, The Lady Gunn, Fame Magazine and many others. Her music has been played in syndicated radio shows such as Passport Approved, Winkelwagen Show and Women of Substance podcasts, as well as in numerous radio stations. Leena has worked recently with producers Benbrick, DJSweap and DJDoobious, and her tracks have been mixed by D/R/U/G/S, Saturday/Monday, Forte and Paul Gilmore.
Leena is releasing her second EP ‘My World’ on 24th November 2017. Leena says of the EP, ‘My World is more upbeat than my earlier works and it is not aligning with any specific genre – I see the EP as a natural progression of my style, experimenting with different electronic sounds and vocal arrangements.’ The title track ‘My World’ explores feelings of not conforming to other people’s expectations and is a reflection of her latest EP seeing light with very little outside influence.
A week before the official launch, Leena held an EP pre-launch in the White Noise Bar in Old Street, where she performed the EP for the very first time.
When we caught up with Leena, she told us what she thought; “I had been aware of Splento before but had never used them myself. I was attracted to the transparent pricing, the ability to book on short notice and fast delivery times. Having been featured in a number of blogs recently, I have been on the look-out for photo opportunities and decided just a couple of days before the pre-launch to have some professional shots taken which I could use for blogs, online press and social media.
The photographer from Splento arrived early to set up his equipment and placed additional lighting around the stage. Throughout the two 40-minute sets we performed, he moved around the stage and in the crowd to shoot us at different angles. I was positively surprised when I received the pictures within 48 hours and could include a few good ones for my press release just going out.
I would recommend Splento for musicians who need to do a photoshoot for promotional purposes or need coverage of their live performances.”
