BIOGRAPHY

Singer, producer, songwriter, and musician Laleh Pourkarim has a back-story that could be the plot of a sprawling war-time novel. But after her first album “Laleh” 2005 she has been dictating her own life and been successful doing so.

She writes, plays, records, produces, and engineers every note of her music herself in her studio. Since 2005 when she first signed her record deal, Laleh has become a major star in Scandinavia, where she has released six albums and won three Swedish Grammis amid 10 nominations including winning Producer of the year, first woman to do so in Swedish history. Her artist career includes hits like, Some Die Young, Live tomorrow, Colors, Bara få va mig själv, Vårens första dag, En stund på jorden and many more. The songs are in English, Swedish and Farsi.

Now LA based, Laleh is working as a producer and songwriter for other artist as well as her “the main reason I do the producing and songwriting for other artists is because I see the need of women in that field, specially the pop side of the business, that keeps me interested and going”. And just recently working with artists like Ellie Goulding, Demi Lovato, Tori Kelly, Shawn Mendes.

Born in Iran to democratic activist parents, including a journalist/artist father. The family lived in hiding before fleeing, after Laleh’s birth, to Azerbaijan, then to Minsk, where Laleh has memories of Soviet bread lines and squat government housing. When she was nine, the Pourkarims moved to Sweden (family lore has it that her mother chose Sweden because she was a fan of ABBA). But despite everything she’s been through, Laleh insists her story doesn't dictate her songs “music gives us the chance to change the world and change our lives”.
