Headshot of Lumane for 360 Magazine

Rising Star, Lumane

Switzerland native Lumane is not your typical pop artist. Much of her inspiration stems from her mother playing “Moonlight Sonata” by Beethoven on the piano when she was just a toddler. At four-years-old, Lumane put her foot forward to be like her mom learning to play different instruments throughout the years to come. In the mix of that was learning to use her vocal gift in hopes of expressing her creative side.
Lumane had the opportunity to audition her talents at the age of 13 in front of superstar judges in Germany on a show called “Das Supertalent”, which is similar to America’s Got Talent. She sang her heart out only to be left with no invitation back. Lumane was determined to grow. Years later with thousands of hours put into vocal lessons and practice, she auditioned for The Voice in Switzerland making her way through 3 rounds. This progress wasn’t enough for Lumane.
Lumane did not give up. With the support of her family, she pushed further to achieve her dreams. She bought a plane ticket to New York to continue her studies in the city that never sleeps. While being in school 6 days a week to study Musical Theatre and Acting for Film & TV she continued writing and producing her own songs on the side. After finishing the two-year program she realized that songwriting and pop music was her true passion, not musical theatre. This lead her to audition for the Berklee College of Music in Boston and started her studies there only a couple of months later. Being surrounded by like-minded musicians was exactly the inspiration Lumane needed. After only two semesters at Berklee, an opportunity to finally take the first steps in using her talents to professionally create and record her first set of songs presented itself.
She packed her bags, returned her apartment keys, bought a plane ticket to Nashville, TN to start actively working on her dream instead of just learning about it in class and books. Lumane finished her degree from Berklee online while writing songs with award-winning producers and writers. This first true experience in the music industry left her thirsty for more.
In her music, Lumane wants to tell her story and experiences – moving to a different continent at 18 years young by herself, being an immigrant in the US and meeting the love of her life, as well as empower people to stand up for themselves and for what they believe is right. All of this comes wrapped in powerful vocals and beautiful melodies, accompanied by explosive beats and heartbreaking piano parts.
Lumane worked with a Grammy-nominated producer on songs like “Taboo”, “Letters”, and “White Lies” which are three recent releases from this electro-pop artist. Her next song titled “Poison” is a story we all have – the feeling you get when you find the right person for you after only meeting toxic people and seeing right through them. Sounds like a good song, right? You can hear for yourself on all streaming platforms.

Recently, he has earned a degree in music performance and business from the Columbia College. Forever seeking to share his testimony, he seeks to inspire, touch hearts and provoke thought through his music.
