As a singer/songwriter, Leah-Carla Gordone has received critical acclaim for her performance intensity and compelling stage presence. Now she is the author of a new book The Motorgirl Memoirs: Adventures in Mania and Semi-Normality, an autobiography 20 years in the writing (Available NOW at Amazon.com and listed with Baker & Taylor). The 12-string guitarist has also received [and continues to receive] noteworthy praise for all three of her full-length CDs: Butterfly Child, Dancing on the Dragon, and Phoenix from the Ashes: Rise. Her music has been described as "rockin'," "eclectic folk/rock," "refreshing," "kick-***," "breathtaking," "hot pop!" "cross-over," "uplifting," "multi-genre," "her own lane," "nothing like it," "an oasis," "knee-buckling," "universal," "ethereal," "unique adult contemporary," and "jammin'."


"Gordone is an excellent, young singer...A modern day Carly Simon burst forth [during her live performance in Los Angeles] with a touch a Joni Mitchell thrown in for good measure!" - Music Connection Magazine

"Take a deep breath. Light a candle. Turn out the lights. Pour a glass of your favorite wine. Put your headphones on. Listen...Phoenix from the Ashes: Rise is a stunning album from Leah-Carla Gordone...Lyrically, she is hauntingly beautiful and tellingly effective...and vocally she emerges as an ethereal cross between Alanis Morissette and Rickie Lee Jones but with a uniqueness that separates her from the two...'Naked' is one of 2009's most knee-buckling beautiful songs!" - Michael Canter, Jive Talkin' (Oct 2009)

"Wow! Gordone is like a cross between Buffy Saint Marie and Nina Simone. This is some great music, the kind you just hear every once in a great while: a unique voice singing thoughtful, inspiring lyrics. She plays guitar well too! Oh man, she just blows me away." - Nightflying Entertainment Guide (Oct 2009)
Gordone's memoir depicts her as a manic-depressive in quest of her soul mate and recognition as an actress/musician, devastated at times—but never broken—by her multiple encounters with unhealthy men…
"Ms. Gordone has written an incredible odyssey...Anyone who lives with or has to deal with bipolar issues needs to read this book, not once but three or four times...Read it and find out how the creative process can be either the salvation of the soul or the rack on which we place our idols." - Peter Brown, Literary Agent, Amazon.com Review

“From hazardous, fragmented [mis]adventures, Leah-Carla Gordone pulls a shining crystal ball of understanding—reconciling the intensely creative and bipolar parts of herself...a triumphant story of feminine resilience and beauty.” – Lo Galluccio, Author of Hot Rain, Sarasota VII, and Terrible Baubles

“THE MOTORGIRL MEMOIRS is magical! An eloquently written, honest, and compelling masterpiece with rich and colorful insights into Manic-Depression that will bring you to tears. Leah-Carla Gordone takes you on a funky, urban adventure with her emotionally riveting character, Em-Gee, who has the soul of a rock star, a super hero, and a pixie all rolled into one brave and awesome Bipolar babe!” – Taj Bell, Author and Illustrator of children’s book The Little Night Fairy
Unintentionally timed with the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, a hearty chunk of the book includes the author’s own experience living in the town of Woodstock (located in Upstate New York) and attending Woodstock ’94 and Woodstock ’99 (both were massive '69 commemorative music festivals). Gordone seems to have been everywhere at the right time and with so many music fans and countless, mind-blowing music reviews from reputable sources, such as PETER YARROW (of PETER, PAUL AND MARY) who hails her as “A POWERFUL, AUTHENTIC SINGER...LEADING THE CUTTING EDGE OF THE
