LEONIE MEIJER RELEASES BRAND NEW MINI ALBUM ‘PERFECT SOLITUDE’
Born September 4, 1985, Dutch singer and songwriter Leonie Meijer performed as a singer in several bands, but her big break came when she performed as part of the 2010-2011 season of The Voice of Holland, eventually coming in fourth, but it allowed her to begin a recording career. The first two records ‘Los’ (2011) and ‘Luister Maar’ (2013) were produced by Daniel Gibson, her longtime writing partner. The third album “The Naked Sessions” was released in October 2015. This album was recorded live WAS and produced by Jack Pisters and herself.
In 2017 the album ‘NJ 123’ was released: Produced by Ton Snijders, Daniel Gibson and herself. For this album Leonie traveled around the world. She followed the blues trail in the Deep South of the United States on her own, to understand more of the depth there is to blues and country music. Two of the new tracks on this record were written in Nashville, together with songwriter Sam Ashworth. But also trips to Ireland and a recording session with The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra in the Czech Republic, contributed to this special album. The title ‘NJ 123’ refers to the bus she took every morning from New Jersey to New York, where the artwork for the new album was created.
Continuing her own path, in the summer of 2018 Leonie decided to write in solitude. This resulted in 6 brand new songs behind the piano. The mini album, called Perfect Solitude, is out now! Produces by the amazing Reyn Ouwehand. The story of Perfect Solitude continues in theatres from September 2019 till March 2020.
