In 2010 German singer-songwriter Leslie Clio moved from Hamburg to Berlin in order to produce her first record “Gladys” (2013), a retro soul-pop record which got her signed to Universal Music and charted at #11 in the German album charts and sold over 65.000 units. On top, her music videos have amassed over 6 million views on YouTube to this day.
The singles “I Couldn’t Care Less” and “Told You So” from Leslie’s first album became instant airplay hits (peaked at #28 and #34) and earned her a nomination for an “ECHO” Award, the most important Music Award in Germany, in the category “Best Female Artist National”.
She appeared in television shows such as “Ina’s Nacht” and “Schlag den Raab” and performed at various well-known festivals such as Rock am Ring, Rock im Park, Reeperbahn Festival, Dockville, Immergut and Eurosonic. In addition there were several headline tours and support slots for artists like Phoenix, Keane and Joss Stone.
Following the success of her first album, Leslie Clio released her second record “Eureka” (Universal Music) in spring 2015 in GSA, written and produced all over the globe, which charted at #13. The first single “My Heart Ain’t That Broken” became another top 50 airplay song and has exceeded more than 10 million streams on Spotify by now.
