The Berlin-based musician, model, dancer, art director and LGBTQ+ & POC ambassador is looking at an impressive career so far, ticking an ANCHOR AWARD nomination (Reeperbahn Festival 2021), SXSW, Fusion and Reeperbahn showcases, support slots for Milky Chance, Giant Rooks, ÄTNA and Raphael Saadique as well as brand collabs with Paco Rabanne, Don Perignon & Tommy Hilfiger, an NMA Hotlist 2022 listing and the recent nomination as “Favorite Artist” at Preis für Popkultur 2023 of the list.
LIE NING deftly moves between the genres of indie, soul and R'n'B, creating moments of timeless pop and emotionally powerful images of dreamy expanse and bitterly serious shape. Their highly acclaimed debut album "utopia", produced by Grammy winner Stephen Fitzmaurice (known for his work with Sam Smith, Alicia Keys and Mary J Blige), was released in April 2023 via Humming Records. Singles such as "error" and "i see you" captured international and domestic playlist placements on Spotify such as GLOW and RADAR GSA. Their headline tour, which followed in May 2023, saw sold-out venues in Berlin and Hamburg and huge crowds at festival appearances at Fusion, Haldern Pop and Appletree Garden.
