Lea Sirk started her musical education at the age of five in Koper, Slovenia. Between 2001 and 2007, Lea participated at numerous national and international competitions, where she regularly finished amongst the top positions. Lea finished her secondary school early, with flying colours, while studying the concert flute.
Lea studied at the Conservatory of Music in Geneva and has played in various orchestras and participated in different seminars across Europe. Lea Sirk completed her undergraduate studies early and with honours. She also finished her master studies with honours two years later and became a Master of Arts in Specialised Music Performance.
During her studies, Lea also established herself as a singer, as singing has always been her great passion. In 2005, Lea received the award for the most promising young singer at the International Music Competition Cologne. She began participating regularly at various festivals, as well as EMA, the Slovenian national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest (2009, 2010). Her participation in the show Znan obraz ima svoj glas (Your Face Sounds Familiar) left an indelible mark on viewers, as Lea was the most convincing through her transformations into famous world performers, including the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest winner, Salvador Sobral.
As a backing vocalist, Lea already performed twice at the Eurovision Song Contest, namely in 2014 in Copenhagen with Tinkara Kovač, and in 2016 in Stockholm with ManuElla. Lea is also a studio musician and music arranger and has performed on numerous grand stages and recorded with numerous Slovene musicians.
Lea, a mother of two girls, has been building her soloist singing career in parallel with her other responsibilities, with a sense of determination. Her participation at numerous festivals culminated with her impressive win at EMA 2018 where she became the Slovene representative at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest with her song Hvala, ne! which she wrote alongside Tomy DeClerque.

Lyrics of Hvala, ne!

Slovene (Original)

Moje ime je Lea in za vas imam nov likLik nasmeha in svobode kot najbolj virtualen trikEn korak do zmageEn korak do lučiDo popolnostiBorim se z nasmehom do sonca, borim se za ljudiPot do resnice, me zaslepiLjubezen, tista prva, pride, da preslepiJaz pa si vzamem, kar telo osvobodi
Ne verjemi v vse, kar ponujeno ti jeMisli na glas in upajDa skrivnost je v tem, ne prodajaj se vsemTo je najbolj passé
Hvala, ne, ne!Hvala, neHvala, ne, neHvala, hvala, ne
Milijon ljudi je že reklo, da nas preveč živiTistih, ki so nesrečni in brez lučiEn nasmeh za srečoEn nasmeh za ljudiZa tiste, polne skrbiSvoje duše ne dam nikomur, držim jo za sePrava umetnost, brez-brez ceneVsak odgovor je v meni, najdem ga, kadar zaspimKo telo je sproščeno, predano za vse
Ne verjemi v vse, kar ponujeno ti jeMisli na glas in upajDa skrivnost je v tem, ne prodajaj se vsemTo je najbolj passé
Ne verjemi v vse, kar ponujeno ti jeMisli na glas in upajDa skrivnost je v tem, ne prodajaj se vsemTo je najbolj passé
Hvala, ne, ne!Hvala, neHvala, ne, neHvala, hvala, ne
Kot lutka za ljudiKi se skrivajo za maskamiEnaki, popolni, a nezadovoljniHvala, ne, ne, ne!Ne verjemi v vse, kar ponujeno ti jeMisli na glas in upajDa skrivnost je v tem, ne prodajaj se vsemTo je najbolj passé
Hvala, ne, ne!

English

My name is Lea, And I have a new character for youA character of smiles and freedom as the most virtual trick of them allOne step away from winningOne step away from the lightFrom perfectionI fight with a smile to reach the sun, I fight for peopleThe road to truth blinds meLove – that first one – comes to fool youBut I take everything that sets the body free
Don't believe in everything that they offer youThink loudly and hopeThat the secret of everything is in it, don't sell your soul to everybodyThis is so passé
No! No thanks!No thanksNo! No thanksNo thanks! No thanks!
A zillion people have already said that there's too manyOf those living in misery and without lightOne smile for happinessFor those preoccupiedI won't give my soul to anyone, I'll keep it for myselfTrue art cannot have a price tagEvery single answer is already in me, I find it during my sleepWhen my body is relaxed and perceptive to everything
Don't believe in everything that they offer youThink loudly and hopeThat the secret of everything is in it, don't sell your soul to everybodyThis is so passé
Don't believe in everything that they offer youThink loudly and hopeThat the secret of everything is in it, don't sell your soul to everybodyThis is so passé
No! No thanks!
