Music really runs in my veins as my whole family are musicians and I’m the third generation of teachers.

My passion for singing started from a very young age and I went on to study a degree in classical music in Helsinki. During this time I performed in operas and concerts and came third in a Melartin Lied competition. 

After finishing my studies I still wanted to broaden my knowledge so I decided to move to London where I spent another year studying contemporary styles.

By this time I had also been teaching throughout the 6 years of studying and wrote a lot of music. I founded a melodic metal band Angel Nation in 2011 and since 2016 I've also been fronting a German symphonic metal band Leaves' Eyes. I have played many tours and concerts in North-America and Europe



“every once in a while you discover a new singer, with a phenomenal voice, and she is definitely one of them…I must admit I have never been so excited about a new band, i have heard, in years.”

Graham Rodes


“Elina Siirala, a classically trained singer is in the centre of this album called “tears of Lust”. Her intense sound gives the vibrant debut album its icing on the cake…”
