We‘re happy to introduce to you one of our performing artists in the program of the 37th TEDDY AWARD ceremony at Berlin’s Volksbühne on Feb 24!
Growing up in Berlin, LIE NING was exposed to a mixture of languages, images and melodies from an early age on, creating an interest for dance, fashion and fine arts. Music especially. From early on his mother showed him a world of rhythm and melodies, which would never let go of him again. His voice emerged as the most powerful means of expression. Everything he couldn’t convey visually he wrote into songs.
With his EP “traffic songs for the inbetweens” the young singer delivered a debut of impressive maturity, depth and international format. Still in a balancing act in between indie, soul and r’n’b, LIE NING creates intense pop-moments and emotional pictures in dreamy landscapes that got sharp edged. With his highly anticipated debut album lined up, LIE NING opens the gates to a parallel universe and reveals a layer of his very own utopia. One of many.
What builds a person? How does society reflect on a persona? Who defines success? Who am I? Where do I stand and for whom? A society is built by many factors, contributes and components. So is a personality. “utopia” is a deep dive into one of many facettes of LIE NING lead by velvet vocals and intriguing intensity towards the place of deepest emotional vulnerability. Where realities collide. Welcome to the cosmos LIE NING.
