About Lxandra

Alexandra Lehti, also known as Lxandra, has had a stratospheric rise in her career in the last few years. In 2019, she won the Music Moves Europe Talent Award. This was followed by the release of two albums in 2019 and 2021. Her song Too Young To Grow Old was featured in an episode of Marvel’s Runaways, and Hush Hush Baby in horror film I Still See You.

The UMK jury had this to say about her song:

For years Lxandra has been one of Finland’s most promising export talents, making a career for herself out in the world. Now, she brings her exquisite ballad Something To Lose to UMK. The song is all at once tender and personal, dramatic and epic. Lxandra is a top-notch live performer, who has touched audiences in Finland and abroad, even bringing them to tears. The song will definitely rise to new heights when performed live. Lxandra is also known as a versatile audio-visual artist, so we are very interested to see what kind of world she will build around the song.
