A talented songwriter and artist
Writing his own songs since he picked up a guitar at 10 years old, Lenny decided to go for a professional career in music when he was only 15 years old. He changed from high school to a music education at the famous pop rock school Herman Brood Academy in Utrecht, the Netherlands. He graduated at 18 with the highest grade one can possibly get: a 10 for artistic skills.
Drawing inspiration from icons like David Bowie, The 1975, and Harry Styles, Lenny has created his own unique sound that defies genres. With his charismatic performances, powerful vocals and particular talent for songwriting, he blends elements of rock, pop, and electronic music to create something new and exciting.

ABOUT LENNY MONSOU
Born and raised in a family of musicians, Lenny Monsou got access to a professional home studio at early age. His father being a drummer and producer and his mother a singer. They were a well known songwriting duo in their younger days in the Netherlands. When his older brother Daniel Monsou picked up the guitar, Lenny soon followed his example and started writing his own songs at the age of 10. When he was 12 he released his first EP. He started playing piano as well. But singing and writing songs became his true passion. His song "Is this what you want" reached the finals of the category Teen at the International Songwriting Competition out of hundreds of songs when he was only 15.
Lenny was accepted at the pop/rock school Herman Brood Academy as their youngest student at 15 and developed his producing skills, writing and singing in a killer pace. He released several songs on the streaming services, played live at regional and national radio (Giel Beelen). In 2022 he graduated from Herman Brood Academy with the highest score possible for Artistic Skills (grade 10).
Lenny always dreamed of signing with a major record label before his twentieth birthday. And guess what? Still 19 years old, he signed a major deal with Warner Music.
Lenny is now working on this debut release and definitely one of the most talented upcoming young artists to be reckoned with in the music industry.
