We were instantly enamored by Swedish singer songwriter Anna Leone when she made her debut last year with My Soul I, a smoky emulsion fusing indie soul with pastoral folk. She then followed that sterling tune up with I Never Really, another beautifully heartrending, pensively melancholic gem. Re-visit our features, here. Now, our journey with the budding artist continues with news of her debut EP, Wandered Away, as well as a brand new stunner named If Only You. Like her other songs, Anna Leone’s If Only You is a soft caress, but this time she’s also taking us on a windswept ride with the wistful beauty. Emotive and raw, honest and moving If Only You is nothing short of flaweess, a rich tapestry woven with tender guitar and Anna Leone’s gracefully affecting vocals. If Only You is out now on indie label Half Awake / All Points / Believe. Her five track debut EP, produced by Bryan Wilson (Grammy nominated producer, engineer, & mixer who’s worked with Florence + The Machine, Wolf Alice, Arctic Monkeys, and more) will arrive on April 20th. Pre-order, here.

19 year old Swedish singer songwriter Anna Leone captured us with her debut single a few months ago when she released My Soul I, a smoky raw folk meets intimate soul ballad that showcased her inspirations, which include Bob Dylan, Lana Del Rey, Bon Iver, Laura Marling, and more. She’s since debuted a new music video and song via French Vogue named I Never Really, a gently affecting, melancholic and contemplative beauty. Anna Leone’s new song also reminds me of a folksier, dustier Lianne La Havas at times, it’s a sincere and brittle gem steeped in vulnerable emotion. 

Anna says, “The song deals with the idea of suppressing things you don’t want to deal with and wondering if that’s right or wrong and how that impacts your life and relationships. This is the most recent song I’ve written and the latest one recorded in the studio so it all came together very quickly. I was writing a lot at home and this one stood out as something very sincere. I discovered the riff first and everything sort of fell into place after that, both the lyrics and the melody.” I Never Really is available, here.

Gorgeous is an understatement when it comes to this new 19 year old Swedish singer songwriter’s debut, My Soul I. Anna Leone worked with Grammy nominated producer and mixer Bryan Wilson (Florence + The Machine, Wolf Alice, Arctic Monkeys, Stormzy, Lianne La Havas) on the song. Influences like Bob Dylan, Lana Del Rey, Bon Iver, and Laura Marling certainly shine through on this smoky raw folk meets intimate soul emulsion, but it’s also impossible to miss a touch of Lykke Li in the heartfelt ballad. Earnest and sincere, tender yearning My Soul I is a herald of a debut EP to come within the next couple of months, as well as some promised to be great music videos. Anna Leone’s first song cuts deep and reminds us of how vulnerable and pliable our hearts can truly be. My Soul I is out now on indie label Half Awake.
