Bio

Asian-Canadian up-and-coming artist Leanna Oki blends elements of soulful pop, R&B, and electronic music to create her unique and captivating sound. Finding her outlet in music at an early age, singing and songwriting have evolved into her form of self-expression and therapy, serving as a way to release her inexplicable feelings and experiences. Being self-taught in piano, guitar, and music production, Leanna is almost fully independent in her music creation until it nears the very final stages. By utilizing the strong projection of her voice, hard-hitting bass lines, and an abundance of vocal layers, she derives her signature bold style. 

Leanna’s music has been featured across Canada by Aesthetic Magazine, Ottawa Life, The Wire Megazine, Cashbox Canada, and Bay Observer, and was aired by CBC Radio, CJMQ-FM, and KOOP 91.7 FM. Leanna also appeared on CTV Ottawa Morning Live for their Morning Jam. Leanna has also been featured internationally by Lefuturewave, Clout, Music Arena Gh, Iggy Magazine, and Illustrate Magazine. Drawing inspiration from the emotionally-freeing sound of Maggie Rogers and moody resonance of Banks and Lorde, Leanna aspires to be another prominent female musician that uses her experiences of pain and healing to propel her sound. Leanna has received comparisons to the deep and rich tones of Adele and Phoebe Bridgers while maintaining her distinct vocal presence. "Her sound is deeply rich in passion with a powerful complexity, a true introspective delight" - The Wire Megazine.  

Leanna has been composing and recording her own hand-written tracks for over 7 years and continues to create music that narrates her journey of heartbreak and healing. Leanna continues to build her repertoire of independently written tracks, and is set to release her upcoming emotional pop single, “It was all a lie”, on September 30, 2022.
