Lianna Klassen is an award winning, Canadian Celtic/world influenced artist, based out of Montreal, Quebec. Her music is deeply connected to her Christian spirituality and this is made evident in the lyrics and melodies she writes. She has a skill in gathering sounds and styles from around the world and forging them together into something that is memorable, radiant and inspiring.
Lianna has had opportunity to minister around the world and is known as one who portrays deep truth and emotion through her music. She has a heartfelt desire to see the church rise up to their full potential in creative worship. In her life's journey, God has brought her into an awareness of the many wonderful and diverse sounds and drumbeats that He has created for His glory in the nations. She has incorporated this diversity into her writing and musical style and her 6 recordings are a direct result of this vision with their worldbeat and Celtic worship overtones. Her "Song For Canada" has become a treasured prayer for thousands across Canada. Her latest recording, “The Guest” is a combination of Celtic hymns, meditations and chants, inspired by early Celtic Christian writings and Lianna’s own experience in intercession. She is a worship leader and has lead worship in Conferences and Conventions across Canada and Europe.
Lianna lives in Old Montreal, Quebec with her husband.
