A little bit of rock, a little bit of jazz and a whole lot of soul. LA-based singer Helena has just been signed to Warner Bros. Records. Discovered by former American Idol judge and current WBR SR. VP of A&R Kara DioGuardi, Helena was born in India and was raised in rural Pennsylvania before moving out to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams of playing music.

"Helena's songs are a kind of hypnotic, melodic poetry. She paints pictures and evokes moods with her lyrics," says DioGuardi. "I believe she is one of the most talented artists out there today."

Helena's debut album will drop later this year. But before that, Helena will have a three-day Thursday residency at Hollywood's Hotel Cafe this June. After that, she's scheduled to perform at this year's Lollapalooza on the BMI stage in Chicago this August.

Upcoming live dates are as follows:
6/7 - The Hotel Cafe (Hollywood)
6/14 - The Hotel Cafe (Hollywood)
6/21 - The Hotel Cafe (Hollywood)
8/3-8/5 - Lollapalooza (Chicago)
