  • Singer Leila Šurković released her live video for “Gun To My Head” on Sunday. In addition, a live version of their hit will be released on September 30th on the most popular streaming platforms.

  • The musician, who played guitar and bass for “Jeans for Jesus”, was allowed to perform her own songs again and again during the band’s tour. This gave her a rocket start in the music business.

  • The 21-year-old is currently working on her first album.

She is the great discovery of this year’s festival summer: Leila Šurković. Her song “Gun To My Head” has developed into a big hit in recent months, which the audience was able to sing along to perfectly. A fact that the 21-year-old sometimes hardly believes to be true. The track now has almost a million views on Spotify and is considered the anthem of the summer. “Hey my dears, this summer was incredible, what a dream come true,” she writes on Instagram and immediately announces news for the fans: “I wanted to thank you, so I made a little summary of the tour.”

Since Sunday, September 25th, the single has been available for the first time as an emotionally charged live version. Finally, on September 30, it should also be available on the most popular streaming platforms. The recording is a reminder of their beginnings. But that’s not all: the Swiss with Bosnian roots has long been back in the studio and is working on her first album.

First appearances thanks to “Jeans for Jesus”

Leila manages to do a rocket launch. Because she has only been with the Bernese pop band “Jeans for Jesus” as a tour guitarist and bassist since spring 2021. She finally played her first concert in July 2021 – at that time in front of a few hundred people, the maximum of what was allowed due to the corona pandemic. But her bandmates were deeply impressed by Leila’s voice and presence, which is why they decided to let the young woman perform her own songs throughout the tour.

An atypical decision by “Jeans for Jesus”, especially since they are known as a progressive dialect band, while Leila sings in English. But she manages to drive people crazy every single time.
