Ella Leya is an American composer, singer, and writer born in Baku, Azerbaijan.[1]

Her album releases include "Queen of Night," "Russian Romance" and "Secret Lives of Women."

"Queen of Night" — and especially the songs Kabbalistic Prayer and He’s Just A Little Boy — was a tribute to the memory of her son Sergey.

"Russian Romance" dug into her cultural heritage, combining classic Russian poetry, Middle Eastern rhythms and her atmospheric melodies.

"Secret Lives of Women" celebrates six of history’s most famous and infamous femme fatales: Princess Diana * Mata Hari * Cleopatra * Anne Boleyn * Sappho * Sarah Bernhardt.

Ella Leya has toured with her Jazz orchestra SELAH across Europe and the United States.

Her songs have appeared in a variety of movies and TV shows, such as Ocean's Twelve, PU-239, My Sassy Girl, Dirty Sexy Money, Samantha Who.
