Lena began her artistic education at the age of 4 in a community conservatory, where she initially learned classical, jazz, and contemporary dance. At the age of 7, she started learning piano, music theory, and harmony. She had always sung, but she truly began taking lessons at the age of 14. The following year, she started learning guitar and music production.

In 2019, she won the "Talents des Bords de Loire" competition, a well-known singing contest in her region. In 2021, she achieved level 2 in piano and singing with honors, which opened the doors for her to enter the Saint-Etienne Conservatory, a renowned music institution with regional influence.

Her musical universe is primarily focused on contemporary music and covers a wide range of genres. However, she is particularly inspired by soul, jazz, and funk. She is influenced by many renowned artists, including Aretha Franklin, Amy Winehouse, Ella Fitzgerald, David Bowie, Al Jarreau, Jamiroquai, Patti Smith, and many others.

The lockdown period in March 2020 allowed her to establish herself as an artist on social media and make several musical connections both in France and abroad.

Subsequently, she was contacted by the TV show "The Voice" on TF1, where she reached the quarter-finals. This experience taught her a lot and enabled her to have numerous encounters and projects. Many music professionals provided her with valuable advice, helping her improve her performance.

In 2021, she performed at the Radio Scoop festival in the city of Feurs, in front of over 40,000 people, alongside many French artists. Following this, she played and sang at various events, concerts, and stages, including the prestigious Casino de Paris.

Beyond being a passion, music is more than just a vocation for her; it is a life project.

After graduating from high school in 2022 with honors, she joined the American School of Modern Music in Paris, specializing in vocal studies under Lou Tavano and Raphaële Atlan. Her first year at this jazz school allowed her to explore new facets of her musical universe and enrich her artistic identity.

Her identity draws nourishment from various sources, starting with jazz and the entire culture surrounding Black Music.

Lena is a big fan of the 70s and the psychedelic universe that emanates from it.

Finally, she has a particular interest in Native American culture and maintains a deep connection with nature, which plays a central role in her compositions.

Nature is one of her main sources of inspiration.
