Leila Pari is a multicultural singer, songwriter, & producer. She builds her shows from the ground up; writing all of her own music, producing, choreographing and creative directing. She is a multi-instrumentalist who loves to perform and connect with audiences about the beauty of being human and the strength we have to overcome all odds. In 2019 Leila went from sleeping in her car, unable to afford rent, to writing 2 albums worth of music and selling out 200 person rooms. Her raw narrative-based songwriting has captured well over a million individual listeners on Spotify without marketing or a record label.
In February 2022, “Castle”, a song Leila wrote by herself, landed in the campaign for an Oscar nominated film.
This February the band Coldplay requested for Leila to open their 1st Music of the Spheres stadium tour date which will be held May 6th in Dallas, Texas at the Cotton Bowl, a 92,100 person stadium.
Leila has performed in LA, New York, San Diego and London and her dream is to tour the world. She's worked with artists like Felix Cartal (8M monthly listeners), Tohi (10M), Tahsan Khan (12M), Erfan Paydar (2M) on songs set to release soon.
As a self professed underdog, Leila has a massive sense of purpose around giving people hope to believe in themselves and their dreams. Because of this, she’s created a series called Under the Covers. Under the Covers is a multi-media show starring up-and-coming legends from all facets of entertainment on their stories of rising above their circumstances, taking risk, developing vision and living with intention. The show is a cross between “How I Built This” by Guy Raz & “Carpool Karaoke” by James Corden. Season one has begun filming and will host guests such as Patrick Schwartzeneger, Tohi, Jeremy Fall, Taylor Cut Films, Mari Llewelyn & Yes Theory.
