Lena Luca (they/them/their), the hot, new queer pop artist emerging out of Austin, TX, is overtaking the scene with their fervid melodies, which erupt from an explosive R&B dance-funk bed with electric disco sprinkles. Their catchy hooks have endeared a quickly-growing fanbase and are turning heads with, as Buzz Music acknowledged: “powerful vocals” and an “outstanding falsetto”.
Lena took deep dive into Austin's music scene with their first band, Elevaded, a sexy and gritty darkpop band pulling strong influence from Nine Inch Nails and Garbage. Craving a more encompassing musical canvas from which to create, Lena rebranded in 2020 as Lena Luca.
Though the pandemic delayed the debut of their live show, Lena made the most of the down time, writing and recording a bounty of content with their frequent collaborator, producer Justin Mauriello, the former Zebrahead frontman. Since then, Lena has worked with other producers as well as alone, creating a slew of singles ready to compliment their catalog of powerful releases.
