Moon and her little sister Lady Esmeralda Danyelöwindenburg, were raised in their family's home of Klasta Castle, located outside of Kesa. She attended primary school in Kesa, where she excelled in music, art, and writing.
After graduating from primary school in 2010, she began attending Queen Maria's School for the Performing Arts in Hoffmann, Ubenmoor with a specialization in opera singing. After studying there for only three weeks, she switched her specialization to general vocal performance. While at Queen Maria's, Moon was introduced to electronic music and first chose her stage name, Leila Moon. She graduated in 2013.
2012–2015: Breathrough and My So-Called FairytaleEdit
At seventeen-years-old, Moon was signed to electronic record label Dragonborne Records, while still a student at Queen Maria's. After news of her signing to the label broke, she was dubbed "The Rock Star Princess" by the Lashardian media. While finishing her studies, she also worked intensively on her debut album and performed small gigs throughout Ubenmoor.
In summer 2013, following her graduation from high school, she released her debut single "Bounce". The song was electronic and took inspiration from Lashpop and drum 'n' bass. "Bounce" went on to peak at number-one on the Lashardian singles chart, and became certified platinum.
Moon released her debut studio album My So-Called Fairytale in 2014. The album, like her first single, was largely electronic, but also had clear influence from Lashpop, drum 'n' bass, synthpop, and ambient music. The album was a large success and peaked within the Top 5 of the Lashardian albums chart. It also produced the hit singles "Alive", "Pioneer", and "Psycho".
2015–present: Second studio albumEdit
In December 2015, Moon revealed that work on her second studio album was in its early stages. The following year, she was confirmed to be a participant in Mösikalifestivali 2017, with the song "Summer Lovin'". She qualified to the second chance round from her semi-final, where she eventually qualified for the final. In the final, she placed ninth.
Moon resides in the Breż district of Ubenmoor. She has stated that she'd like her future husband and children to acquire royal titles as well. In a 2014 interview, she stated that she was a Lashardian Orthodox Christian but that her religion was "simply a formality". Moon can speak fluent Lashardian, Pesan, Sodraxian, English, and Rentuscan. Through her father she has partial Rentuscan ancestry (through Leila, The Queen Mother), and on her mother's side, her great-great-great grandfather was a black Pesan.
