Biography

Melesha O’ggaro was a mere 11 years old when she started to write lyrics after being inspired by mc’s in the then booming UK Garage scene. A born performer and natural lyricist she took too the underground circuit, and whilst still at school, at age 16 she released her first mixtape titled ‘Needle in a Haystack’, a project that she managed and funded herself, from the recording to the advertising, distribution and sales.

Adopting the stage name Lady Leshurr, she has performed all over the UK from local rap battles to the more prestigious Sidewinder. In 2007 she entered and won ‘UK Best Unsigned Female’, where she battled it out with various urban acts across the UK. Her colourful performances, thought provoking lyrics and sheer stage ‘energy’ blew away the competition and in August 2008 she was signed to UK Independent label Colourful State the home of Grime legend ‘Low Deep’. Whilst supporting Low Deep’s promotional tour for his debut album ‘Unsung’, Leshurr began to gain even more recognition, performing on BBC 1xtra, Kiss FM and BBC Asia Network. Her fan base grew exponentially, and people outside of the grime scene began to recognise her musical diversity, leading to collaborations with the KrayTwinz and Baby J.

Having just released her free mixtape ‘The Last Second’, the 25-track feature clearly demonstrates her versatility in the urban music genre.
