Leila Milki

Leila Milki is a Lebanese-American singer, songwriter and instrumentalist based in Los Angeles. As a dynamic, eclectic, and multilingual pop-fusion musician, she integrates her classical piano training with her Arab heritage to create a unique platform for emotional and cultural empowerment.
In the spring of 2017, Leila released her self-written debut album, “Promises,” a collection of eight songs rooted in themes of nostalgia, empowerment, heartbreak, belonging, and a yearning for home. “Promises” merges the vivid nuances of Leila's middle-eastern background with the Western stylings and confessional storytelling traditions of her contemporary pop-alternative influences. The leading fusion single, "Leil Ya Leil," is a tribute to her multicultural identity, and recently earned her the Grand Prize and Lennon Award in the World Category of the 2017 John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Also included in the record, “See You Tonight” won her the Grand Prize in the Adult Contemporary Category of the 2017 West Coast Songwriters International Song Contest, and "Our Eyes Close" was an Honor Finalist in the Singer-Songwriter Category of the 2017 Great American Song Contest.   
Leila's most recent release, "New Year," is an intimate meditation on the illusive ideals, ever-changing circumstances, and smallest hints of light that drive us in our most ordinary and extraordinary moments. The music video was featured as a Viral Video release through Radio One Lebanon, a global media publisher with a multimillion fan following. 
Leila performs regularly in the greater Los Angeles area and the San Francisco Bay Area (where she was born and raised). She incorporates English, Arabic, French, and Spanish into her performances, and finds that these multilayered yet beautifully cohesive narratives elevate our colorful, unified humanity.
