Helene Immel, better known by her professional name Lenachka, is a German-born singer based in Los Angeles and Nashville.

Life and career[edit]

Early life[edit]

Born in Germany to Russian parents, both with a musical background,[1] Lenachka moved to the United States with her parents when she was 8 years old. She is the oldest of 7 children. Her professional name comes from a Russian term of endearment her mother would often refer to her as. Lenachka is bilingual, and speaks Russian and English.[2][3]


After hearing her cover of "Safe & Sound" by Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars, producer Charlie Peacock discovered Lenachka in 2012. Since meeting Peacock, Lenachka has co-written with artists such as Kris Allen, Winston Marshall, Jason Reeves, and Mat Kearney.[4] She released her first EP in September 2014, which rose to #6 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. Lenachka is featured on Kris Allen's debut single "Prove It To You,"[5] and EDM duo BRKLYN's song "Steal Your Heart", released in November 2015.[6] In addition to writing and recording music, Lenachka also works as a receptionist as well as a driver for Uber and Lyft.[1] Lenachka's cover of Hall & Oates' "Private Eyes" appears in a trailer for the 2017 film The Circle. The song was produced by Tim Myers of OneRepublic.[7]
