Brand New Full-Length LEAH album

Most of you know me from my first full-length album "Of Earth & Angels" which I released in 2012. Others know me from the 5-song EP "Otherworld" which featured guest vocals from Testament's Eric Peterson. A few others know me from my YouTube covers, such as King Arthur's "We Will Go Home". If you've heard any of my music, you know it is my passion. You know my own celtic roots are very influential part of my songwriting, and I'm always working on something new.

I'm ready for the next project.


Being a Do-It-Yourself artist is both challenging and rewarding these days, especially when it comes to the financial end. I love the freedom, and being able to call my own shots, and I love that so many dedicated music-lovers want to bypass labels and the big corporations and support me directly! I can't tell you how much I appreciate that.

Having said all that -  one thing you really need in order to do anything (ie. produce a great-sounding album, print merch, tour, etc.) -- is funding. So while I continue to keep my family #1 priority (I'm a homeschool mom) I'm hoping you'll join me in this journey to the next musical project -- that is -- a FULL-LENGTH ALBUM!

Last time I was still just getting my name out there (and still am!) so I only raised enough funds to do a little bit. I worked with what I had and made a 5-song EP, which was mixed by Spacelab Studios (Delain, Serenity, Everon, Imperia). I believe this time around I have enough faithful listeners and friends that are willing to step up and be co-contributors to a real high-quality full-length album!

I feel more inspired than ever to write better music, always pushing and challenging myself.

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!

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!


Thank you so much for reading, supporting and sharing this campaign with your friends and networks. That is really the only way I'll be able to do this!

* I'm going out on a limb here and choosing the "Fixed Funding" option. It's all or nothing baby! Either we raise all the funds needed or I get ZERO. BUT - if every fan on <<Facebook alone>> contributed ONE dollar -- we would easily surpass the funding goal by a long shot.

If you can only do one thing - please share with your entire social networks!
