Bio

Key LeBlanc is a singer, songwriter, published author and philanthropist with a knack for expressing herself through service, art and music. She was born in Louisiana and moved to Dallas, TX when she was a teenager. Her humble southern upbringing evokes a unique voice and style. Her musical taste is inspired by some of the greatest NeoSoul, Jazz, and Pop artists of our time. 

As a child, Key was outgoing and full of life. She excelled in education, dance, cheer, orchestra, band and modeling. On her 18th birthday she received a guitar. That very day, Key learned four chords and wrote her first song. As time progressed, writing songs and playing guitar quickly became Key’s favorite pastime. Key graduated from high school early, with honors and went off to study Biology, Pre-Med at Texas Tech University. Again, she finished her studies a year early with honors and was on track for Medical School. After graduation, Key went on a solo trip to Europe. During this trip she asked herself what made her truly happy, and the answer was helping others and the ability to express herself creatively. While in Europe she thought about how much she loved performing as a child and how happy it made her and others. She concluded that becoming a doctor would not fulfill her soul, so when she arrived home from Europe, she packed up her things and moved to L.A with hopes of discovering herself.

Year 1 in Los Angeles was dedicated to the hustle. Modeling auditions and acting classes galore while working part time as an on-site property manager. Year 2, her mother convinced her to get a full-time job with "benefits" so all she did was work. Year 3 was the toughest yet. She fell in love with someone she believed to be her soulmate but found out that he was only a lesson. Although the relationship was full of pain, it helped her grow. Shortly after the failed relationship Key found herself writing and singing again. Something she hadn’t done in years. She joined her church’s choir and began to write songs from her heart about all she had been through. About a month after her breakup, Key decided to visit one of her best friends in Europe. While there she ran into her old friend August 08 who she hadn’t heard from in a while. They both happened to be in London at the same time, so he invited her out to catch up. Turns out he was living the life he told her he wanted when they had met her very 1st year in L.A. August 08 was there on tour with other members of 88rising. He invited Key to his sold-out show with Rich Brian and as Key watched them perform, she thought, “wow they’re living their dreams; unapologetically and confidently sharing their passions with the world.” Then the thought crossed her mind that she should do same.

She arrived back to L.A at the beginning of the New Year 2018, year 4 and decided that she was going to finally share her music and gifts with the World. She started working part time again as a property manager to pay her bills but would attend networking events with other musicians and artists to get more involved with the industry. Within that year Key laid down a few singles and her acoustic EP Growing.

In November 2018 the building Key was managing fell victim to local gang violence. There was a shooting and tenants lost their lives. This event shook her to the core, and she decided to move back to Dallas, TX to be with family. While in Dallas she began to develop her sound with other musicians. Within her 1st month back she was chosen for an artist showcase at the Dallas House Of Blues where she performed for over 1000 people, her first performance ever. Since then she has performed at Dallas Love Field Airport’s “Live at Love,” The Black Academy of Arts and Letters, DFW Go Big Women’s Expo and multiple Dallas area hotels.

 Key Leblanc released her debut single this year which she titled Happy. This song has landed her a top 10 finalist spot in the California Inspired Music Contest. Key is currently working with a full band in New York City developing her acoustic songs into fully produced singles. Her next single Boyfriend is scheduled to release August 2019. She plans to get back into the studio to finish up the final touches of her EP Growing as well as start recording new music for her next EP which she plans to title Love Memoirs.
