Since 1998, Leanne has captured diverse audiences with her heart-felt lyrics and soulful melodies. Her songs convey a prominent element of honesty, multiplying the depth of emotion behind her lyrics that pulls the heartstrings of listeners. Often drawing upon her own life experiences, her songwriting expresses her visions on love, relationships, and life as a twenty-something. Leanne's haunting vocals are reminiscent of artists such as Sarah McLachlan and Natalie Merchant. Influences including Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, Kathleen Edwards and Jonatha Brooke also create subtle undertones in her music. Leanne regularly performs both as a solo artist and with a band in the greater Seattle area. Band members include Alex Trzyna (Elder Mason, Kiss Her For the Kid, Connor Desai, Mr. Twit) on electric bass and Mike O'Doherty (Kiss Her For the Kid, Connor Desai, Atma) on drums. The band's first studio album Waterwheel, recorded at the Track Shack in Seattle, Washington, was released in March 2008.
