Need a gift for a gifted musician?
The rising Singer/Songwriter/Producer from Manchester, Leah, is set to stride further in to the music industry this year. Developing as a solo artist for the past few years under the name "Liyah", she began writing her own material acoustically with a piano accompaniment before discovering her passion for a more electronically produced sound. During her work with the production duo, “EightyNineGeeks”, Leah experimented with layering her dark lyrics over the electronic sounds creating the eerie atmosphere that she was striving to achieve. With the floating, country-inspired element of her vocals against the enigmatic lyrical content, we are left with a tension that sits perfectly with the electronic vibes of the tracks she has been working on. Her most recent work includes a collaboration with producer "Damn You Mongolians" on the "Prague" track released April 2013 on RubADuck and more recently became an official third member of the production/DJ duo, Mad Reaction, providing vocals and a large input in the production of originals. Keep your ears peeled for all the exciting new sounds she has on the way in 2014!
