"Erik Deatherage"

"Letitia VanSant's honey-kissed voice embodies a rare earnestness and empathy. But behind the pleasantness is a protest singer with a keen power of observation. The beauty in VanSant's music and persona wins over the most hardened of hearts." - Prairie Public Broadcasting

"Fletcher McNeil"

“VanSant does country-flavored Americana with a voice that will melt you.” - Audio Didactic


Still working on that hot first release.



Letitia VanSant is a singer-songwriter known for her distinctly intimate voice and sincere stage presence. Whether she is performing solo or backed up by a three-piece band, VanSant's sound ranges from stripped-down indie folk to gritty Americana. Her lyrics ask spiritual questions about human nature and justice.

After the creation of her debut album in 2012, she became a favorite of local Baltimore radio station 89.7 WTMD, and listeners voted her song song "Rising Tide" among the most popular of the year. She won the 2017 Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition, as well as the the folk/acoustic category in the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest.

She is currently in the process of recording her third studio album, Gut it to the Studs.

She has opened for many excellent national acts including Grammy-nominated Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, the Stray Birds, Joseph Arthur, Miss Tess & the Talkbacks, Nora Jane Struthers, the Honey Dewdrops, Dustbowl Revival, I Draw Slow, the Bumper Jacksons, Larry Keel, Cris Jacobs, Laney Jones & the Spirits, Jared & the Mill, and many more.

She's played at venues like the Creative Alliance, the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage, Merriweather Post Pavillion's Chrysalis Stage, the, the Hamilton DC, the Strathmore Amp, the Charm City Bluegrass & Folk Festival, WTMD's 1st Thursday Concerts and Live Lunch, Gypsy Sally's, a NERFA quad showcase, the Gordon Center for Performing Arts, Center Stage, the Black Cat, Jammin' Java, Iota Club & Cafe, and Takoma Park Folk Festival.  (Although in the end, house concerts remain her favorite :).
