Master of cinematic grandeur, Pop-Rock Vocalist and Actress Lea Rundblad, is one of the most intriguing artists to emerge from the New York scene in recent years. Her story in music began in 2008, after the passing of her father, she left her career in Fashion to work in music full time. Lea founded the band Quimera Music which was active from 2009-2013 and set out to balance the best aspects of rock, pop and cinema music. Her first album “Love and Madness” (were she collaborated with various composers) was released relatively under the radar, with the Argentinian label Twilight Records. It wasn’t until the release of her second (double) album titled “IMMORTAL”, now working exclusively with Swedish composer Patrick Rundblad, that she was greeted with nods from music critics and fans from around the globe.
After four years with her band, Lea set out to pursue a solo career and to continue evolving her music as well as wetting her feet as an actress. Armed with single releases, music videos and cameos in film soundtracks, Lea and Patrick began writing and recording her debut solo album titled ‘VISITOR’, which released May 24, 2016. The rest, is a story being written.
