If actions speak louder than words, Leah Lavigne’s songwriting embodies and speaks more of her than any worded description. Leah is a moving ballad written with melancholic whimsy, she is an empowering anthem speaking to social change, a spunky tune of heartbreak built upon playful pizzicato strings, and a charming universal ukulele love ditty.
Her sometimes somber sensitivity is reminiscent of Jeff Buckley, she infuses elements of Jazz giving her Soft Pop a groove that is Norah Jones or John Mayer-esque, she maintains an often light Indie delivery similar to Ingrid Michaelson, and adds some Kate Nash quirk for flavor.
The 21 year old singer-songwriter is currently based in New York City as she attends New York University. The soul that can be felt in her songs makes it easy to believe there might still be something in the water back in Motown/Detroit, where she claims her roots.
Leah Lavigne's self-titled, debut EP was released in July of 2011. In November of 2014 she released her sophomore album, Peripeteia. In Spring of 2018 Leah plans to release her EP Lackadaisy.
