About Nerdess

Nerdess is the musical brainchild of artist Alexandra Leonhart (she/her), a project that focuses on crafting quirky indie rock and folktronica that’s as catchy as it is clever.

As a queer DIY musical gal who has been performing for over a decade, Alexandra weaves intricate lyrics that are garnished with humorous vignettes, supplemented with captivating melodies that combine for a sound grounded by acoustic guitar that is often complimented by a small ensemble of DAWless synthesizers and groove boxes, culminating in a sound that is both playful and innovative. With the help of her robot friends expect many fun little ditties to the tune of life as a cat mom, being super gay, and falling in love with monsters during an apocalypse.

A Glimpse into the Music

With an upcoming debut DIY EP & album in production, Nerdess compositions are full of whimsical themes and compelling autobiographical character studies often sprinkling in wordplay or homage to erudite jargon. This is supported musically through genre-blending the stylings of indie rock, folktronica, and bedroom pop ultimately resulting in amusing and thought-provoking ditties.

Influences and Inspirations

Fans of lyrical honesty reminiscent of the Mountain Goats, Motion City Soundtrack, and Sydney Gish will find plenty to love in Nerdess’ charming compositions. Similarly, those who enjoy sonic stylngs of The Postal Service, The Presidents of the United States of America, or Emperor X are sure to resonate with Nerdess’s musical adventures.
