About Leona Naess

Leona Naess is a UK-based singer-songwriter of Swedish and Norwegian parentage who is also the stepdaughter of Diana Ross, whom her father married in 1986. Heavily influenced by 1970s singer-songwriters ranging from Joni Mitchell to Patti Smith, Naess made her debut with 2000's COMATISED, which was followed by 2001's I TRIED TO ROCK YOU BUT YOU ONLY ROLL. 2003's LEONA NAESS was a more stripped-down and acoustic affair. After a number of delays, including a change of labels from Geffen to Verve Forecast, Naess released her fourth solo album, THIRTEENS, in the fall of 2008.
