If you’ve heard any of LEAH’s music, you know it is her passion. You may have heard about LEAH as the female vocalist who featured Eric Peterson (Testament/Dragonlord) as a guest vocalist on her latest EP, Otherworld, or perhaps you heard that LEAH is singing all the female choirs on the newDragonlord album. Obviously, LEAH is always working on something new, so it’s no shock that LEAH is ready for her next project.
The one thing that an artist really needs in order to produce a great sounding record, print merch, tour, etc. is money, and while LEAH keeps her family as her #1 priority (she is a homeschool mother), she is hoping to complete her full-length album soon, and needs help from her fans.

LEAH states, “Already, I have much material to sort through and refine, and in the process I usually end up writing even better songs and nix a few others (this always happens!). I’ve begun to flesh out a theme for the album content, the visualization (which will affect the photography and art), and more. I’m very excited about where this next album will take me – and you!”
She adds, “My main thing has been along the lines of symphonic rock/metal with Celtic and folk undertones or overtones. I will be staying along these lines, but always pushing forward. There will be some interesting players on this next one, and I think it will take me into new territory!”
With only a few days into the campaign, LEAH is currently around the $4,500 mark, and is looking to raise a total of $25,000. Perks offered for donation include digital downloads of the new album pre-release date, a CD + t-shirt, a super-duper merch pack, a personalized cover song, and more!
In many circles, LEAH is described as a Celtic vocal goddess and the “Enya of heavy metal”. From the coast of British Columbia, Canada, auburn-haired symphonic metal artist LEAH is drawing attention from all over the globe. Inspired by Celtic and world music influences such as Clannad and Enya to European symphonic and progressive metal influences, LEAH creates something magical and refreshing.
Her debut self-released album Of Earth & Angels received international critical acclaim, including landing on “The Best Symphonic Metal Album” Metalstorm Awards for 2012. LEAH’s currently available release Otherworld is a 5-song Celtic-metal masterpiece, mixed by Christian “Moschus” Moos at SPACELAB in Germany (Delain, Everon, Imperia, www.spacelab-studio.com), and mastered at Eroc’s Mastering Ranch (http://www.eroc.de/).
