Born in Manitoba and raised in Ontario, young Loreena looked forward to becoming a veterinarian most probably due to the fact that her father raised cattle. However, she chose to go into music claiming that "I found that music chose me rather than me, it." She would later learn to play the harp and perform on the streets in order to raise money to record her first album. Loreena was fascinated by Celtic music and the style of her first album reflected that fact. Though her albums could be found in the folk section of many record stores, her style is more accurately described as "world" or new age. As she progressed further in her career, trips to European locales became routine as she studied the culture and environment of different communities to reflect their art styles in her music. She is known for putting a lot of thought into her music, going so far as to being influenced by prominent literary works such as Dante's Inferno and Shakespeare in writing her lyrics.
