Asian-Canadian artist Leanna Oki is back with her brand new emotional pop single, “It was all a lie”, which can be streamed exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Expressing the naïveté of young love, “It was all a lie” is a song that vulnerably sheds light on the heavy emotions that come after losing someone you love. Through her voice, Oki echoes the painful hollowness of heartbreak and solitude, narrating the story of a short-lived relationship that ended in her late teens. “It was all a lie” offers a raw and honest take on young heartbreak, illustrated with atmospheric keys, synths, and strings that will pull on your own heartstrings.
From the suburbs of Toronto, Canada, Asian-Canadian 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 forms 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, Oki is almost fully independent in her music creation until it nears the very final stages. She utilizes the strong projection of her voice, hard-hitting basslines, and an abundance of vocal layers to produce her signature bold style.
Drawing inspiration from the emotionally freeing styles of Adele and Maggie Rogers along with the moody resonance of Banks and Lorde, Oki aspires to be another prominent female musician that uses passion and soul to propel her sound. Leanna has received comparisons to the deep and rich tones of Phoebe Bridgers and Ruth B, while still maintaining her distinct vocal presence.
Since 2018, Oki has been composing and recording her own hand-written tracks and continues to create music that narrates her journey of heartbreak and healing.
