Album Review Make Time LeAnne King Capital News Australia
‘MAKE TIME’ Review by Susan Jarvis
Listening to this album, you’re left knowing that the songwriter has lived and breathed everything she’s singing about. And that’s this album’s appeal: every note, every word is authentic, and sung from the heart. LEANNE KING clearly loves the genre and makes it her own, with her pure, sweet country voice. Her songs connect in a profound way - few listeners won’t have shed a tear by the end of the album. The album has an underlying theme of taking control of your life and realizing what’s important, and two of the standout songs - Nearly Said No and Make Time both explore this concept, as do Learning as You Go and I Was You. In particular, the love of a parent for a child comes through on Put Your Hand in Mine, Nearly Said No and the delightful Little Cowboy. LeAnne has the ability to touch others with her music, and make them feel and think - which for a songwriter is the ultimate success.

Bio

Sometimes a song comes along that makes you stop, and think......

LeAnne King is one of those people whose songs reach into the very hearts of those who hear them.
Her songs have a reality and power that is both thought provoking and inspirational.

From a successful songwriting career that started in country and now extends to folk and contemporary LeAnne was first recognised by the Australian Country music scene when her first commercial release “You Win Some , You Lose Some” shot into the 2002 Australian Country Music Top 30.

Her powerful lyrics and captivating onstage presence have led LeAnne to be a popular performer in clubs and pubs, but this year LeAnne has concentrated on her foremost passion of songwriting.

With top placings in many Australian Awards including the winner of the 2004 TSA Salute Country Song of The Year, 2005
finalist Contemporary Country Song of the Year, LeAnne has also achieved recognition in many International songwriting
awards. In 2007 she won the International Narrative Song Competition and in 2009 placed as a semifinalist in the UK
Songwriting Awards and was one of only two Australians to place in the 2009 Unisong Awards.

LeAnne’s talent as a lyricist and her ability to write songs for all genres is fast gaining respect in the music industry.

With new album "MAKE TIME" now released, LeAnne is fast realizing her dream of being not only a regular Australian country music performer, but a recognised songwriter as well…
