Leah Harris is a Canadian singer-songwriter whose style brings a new level of intimacy to Pop music. Raised on the border of Detroit, Leah is all about real, honest Soul. Taking inspiration from artists like Ray Charles, Whitney Houston, Jeff Buckley, and Aaliyah, Leah combines dark songwriting with old-school soul vocals and bluesy piano licks.
In 2008, Leah moved to Boston to study Piano Performance at Berklee College of Music, where she met producer and good friend Adam Rhodes. The two have since recorded two albums together in New York’s renowned Systems Two Studios. Leah’s first EP “I Don’t Believe in Love” was released in 2014, and her newest album is currently in the works, which includes her latest single ‘Better Than the Truth.’
Leah moved to Sweden in 2015 to join the European music scene, and then relocated to Finland where she joined the startup world working for online music education company Yousician. Leah was hired to design Yousician Piano from scratch, which became the world's most successful piano learning program used by over one million students. This experience working with an innovative, forward-thinking startup reshaped Leah's view of the music business and inspired her to embrace and support the journey of independent artists.
Leah moved to Dublin in February 2017 to focus on songwriting, before embarking on a year-long independent European tour, which consisted of 13 countries. Leah moved to New York City in May 2018, where she is now in the process of recording a brand new album. Produced again by Adam Rhodes in Brooklyn's Systems Two Studios, the latest tracks combine soulful piano-driven grooves with raw, dynamic vocals and a dark sense of humour.
Leah is currently based in New York and recently released her new single ‘Better Than the Truth.’ Leah performs regularly and is looking forward to releasing her new album later this year.
