The Who: Leah's songs present a fresh sound you won't hear from anyone else. Her style is very playful yet deeply expressive all at once and the sound pulls from her love of soul, blues and folk music and the beauty of well-crafted song from any genre. Leah has played for audiences from The Monterey Blues Festival to Yoshi's to Beale Street in Memphis, and her songs have been featured on radio across the country and in Europe. Since arriving in California in 1998, Leah has also been a featured soloist at Glide Memorial Church and can be seen singing in the film "The Pursuit of Happyness" with Will Smith.
The Why: Not only is Leah a friend, but she is a wonderfully talented musician and singer. We first met at Glide, where we were both members of the Glide Ensemble. Fast forward to December 2011 when I saw her perform at a club in San Francisco and was so touched by her music that we quickly booked for January of 2012. The following month, many of us from that house concert went to Yoshi’s to a sold out show celebrating her CD release. We are so honored to be hosting Leah again.
