The singer and songwriter LUNA is known for her dreamy and at the same time powerful voice and her self-written songs. LUNA started with concerts in garages, played in bands and attended a music high school, then published her first successful features. A star is rising. The future is female.
LUNA’s career started in 2020 with the 50-second piano version of her song entitled “Verlierer”. The track dealing with rejection and an unhappy love affair led to a viral wildfire and excited her fans, the media and colleagues: After the official release in the fall of 2020 her debut song was nominated for the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award. Very quickly it was audio-streamed an impressing 40 million times, received almost 2 million likes on TikTok and her premiere in the top 100 of the radio charts.
In 2021 LUNA’s fame increased even more: Her next single “Blau”, a determined statement on her coming out and the courage not to let oneself be budged received a great deal of attention from the media. The Bavarian radio broadcasted a 30-minute documentary on LUNA. In the summer of 2021 LUNA accompanied LEA on her festival tour. At the same time, the only 19-year old musician won numerous awards – what a sensation! Amazon nominated her as “breakthrough artist”, the “Verein zur Förderung der Popkultur“ declared her an “artist to watch”, 1 Live nominated her in the category “Best Newcomer Act” and the youth radio channel of the public-law broadcasters grant LUNA the prestigious New Music Award as rising star of the year. As a result, the song “Verlierer” easily received gold status in October. In February 2022 LUNA published the song “Hausflur” expressing complex feelings: It is about a love affair in which circumstances cannot be overcome. The assumed weakness of admitting your own helplessness manifests strength. In May the jury and audience of the BUNTE magazine chose LUNA as “Best Newcomer” in the context of the BUNTE New Faces Award Music 2022.
On 1 July 2022 Chapo102 and LUNA published “immer nur du” as their first jointly produced single – a surprising duet that really touches your heart. In 2022 the publication of additional thrilling songs is planned – for example LUNA’s first EP on 26 August 2022. In September 2022 she will go on her first club tour.
