Bio

Told by many, there's a Janice Joplin quality to Leah's sexy and sultry singing voice while her smart and satirical lyrics remind her fans and people of early Dylan or Robert Hunter.

Many of her professional musician friends have labeled Leah's guitar plucking style simply the "LalalaLeah Style" of guitar playing. This initially worried her when she starting playing 10 years ago, but was continually assured not to worry and keep to her frets and to learn that some people try their very best to create their own sound, but end up sounding like everyone else.

She learned guitar on her own while only taking a couple of lessons from friends and asking them to let her know what in the world was she doing on the guitar so she could understand it herself.

And though she writes and plays piano for more than 2 decades, her real gift is on the guitar, unless she's blowing into her harmonica.

She had a harmonica since she was five and would pick it up every few years with no real interest until a friend of hers said, "You should try singing with a guitar." She got the harmonica brace and she still surprises people with the comfort level she seems to show when playing guitar and harmonica simultaneously - easy as if she's just brushing her hair.

What's also great about Leah is that her songs are different from one another, unlike other bands. And though there are love themes in her songs you will also hear many songs showing her concern for America and World Peace such as her song titled" Make Love Not War" or "Freedom Ambassador".

She has many influences young and old to real root music. Her faves though are Hendrix, Dylan, Marley, Joni Mitchell, Led Zep, Young, and Janice Joplin just to name a few.
