Levena was born and raised in London, England. She is an exceptional performer/entertainer who from an early age proved to have an immense interest in singing and performing. Her passion for music has continued on through out her life and career.
Having been born into a musical family it was inevitable that she would fulfil her dreams of singing and performing. Levena started out in the business as a back-up vocalist for several up and coming artists including her own brother Howard Dean Johnson, an acclaimed contemporary jazz/soul vocalist. This included touring and supportive vocals on his released album ‘Archives of Our Lives‘ (1997).
After many years of touring as a backing vocalist and forming many bands, Levena decided to branch out on her own as a solo artist. Her journey began in the recording studio whereby she formed many great partnerships with producers such as ‘The Dreem Team‘, Ras Kwame/musician record producer and Capital Fm DJ. Levena continued to gain much experience on and off the stage including a stunning performance at Her Majestys Theatre performing ‘Shadowlands‘ in The Lion King (2004).
Levena is a highly regarded singer well able to vary her vocal style in jazz/soul/pop classical standards. Recently, Levena has enjoyed success touring the UK with an exciting new production ‘Back to Bacharach‘, celebrating the magical music of Burt Bacharach. She was also invited to sing alongside stars such as; Shola Ama (two-time Mobo Award winner), Toploader, Scouting for Girls and Living Joy, at last years ‘Chingford Get Together Festival 2016‘ in London.
