Event Details

LEA's authentic, uplifting, thought provoking and positive voice lends itself well to quality kindierock, or music for little people as she calls it. Every member of the family will appreciate her seamless blend of gospel, jazz, country and R&B into her own style---SoulFolk---drawing comparisons to Tracy Chapman’s earthy folk, Joni Mitchell’s exquisite songcraft, and Ani DiFranco’s inventive guitar playing and dynamic delivery.

Born into a musical family in Baltimore, her father toured the world playing trumpet in the funk band Black Heat, and her mother performed with the Jones Family Gospel Singers. After relocating to the suburbs of Washington DC as a teenager, LEA discovered classic rock and began
teaching herself to play the acoustic guitar. Her final year in high school was spent in Germany at a classical conservatory, where she sang with the jazz ensemble Black & White and co-wrote with the British pop trio, Indigo Wild.

LEA has shared the stage with luminaries including Odetta, Mavis Staples, Dar Williams and Anthony Hamilton. She performs around the world at venues as diverse as arts centers, universities, festivals, coffeehouses, nightclubs, vineyards, and places of worship. With seven full-length albums already available, and a recording career spanning over a decade, LEA is repeatedly acknowledged by the Washington Area Music Association as one of the region’s best vocalists, songwriters and recording artists. She is also a graduate of the prestigious Artist-in-Residence program at The Music Center at Strathmore in Bethesda, Md. For more information, go to www.thisislea.com
