Indigenous, Country Music Artist
Growing up on a small farm playing with my sisters outside picking berries, snaring rabbits and going hunting and fishing is what I loved to do. But listening to country music took me to another world. Mesmerized by the jukebox I knew one day that like, those country artists, I would sing and write my own songs. As a child Lena suffered a great deal of pain, loss and grew up in poverty; but never let that determine who she was going to be. She grew up through some hard times but picked herself back up and created a beautiful life for her and her family. Getting a guitar gifted to her when she was 25. She started writing music to help heal and start her journey towards bettering her life as a artist and to do what she always wanted to do sing!
