LENÉE is featured in the May print issue of Guitar Player magazine which dives deep into the musician's finger style guitar technique. AXS.com's Jim Wood noted "through the use of harmonics and tapping, Lenée's infectious style utilizes all parts of the guitar and combines elements of folk, rock and pop into one tasty and eclectic musical stew."

Journal that "years ago, I set my intention to be an inspirational songwriter, though over time I've come to realize that inspiration comes in many forms. Talking about the dark and the light, the beauty and moments of pain are all forms of inspiration."(April 19, 2018)
Tonight (6/15) LENÉE is continuing her national 29-date tour in Los Angeles at Boulevard Music. She'll make additional stops in Nashville, TN, Ashville, NC, Cincinnati , OH andCharlottesville, VA, among many others, before wrapping in Tampa, FL at Straz Center for the Performing Arts on November 18.

"For new fans who discover my music, I hope they feel a little closer to the heart," saysLENÉE. "Many have expressed at live shows that when they see a performance, it's as if I'm entering another dimension. This is true in the fact that music is an infinite universe, and with that, I'm beyond grateful to contribute to it and invite others in."
