“With a smooth and soulful voice that erupts with emotion after each and every line, Leah Flanagan is an undiscovered gem in the Australian Music Scene.”
“Equal parts Lucinda Williams and Shirley Bassey, Flanagan is a rich talent… “
Sydney Morning Herald
"Leah Flanagan writes beautiful songs and sings them in a voice you can sink into, cushiony comfort without a single rough edge – it makes you feel like you’ve come home."
If music is the food of love, then the recipe can be found in the life of singer Leah Flanagan. Born and raised in Darwin, the tropical muti-cultural capital of Australia’s Northern Territory, Leah has followed a career trajectory that has built her reputation as a striking live performer and inspired songwriter.
Listen to her 2010 album Nirvana Nights and Leah’s approach to music becomes even more obvious. Over breezy ukulele and warm instrumentation, the album demonstrates her instinctive connection to making music. Unrushed, uncluttered, but brimming with life, Nirvana Nights showcased an artist coming from an entirely new angle to create songs with integrity and soul.
Since re-locating to Sydney in 2012 Leah has teamed up with some of the scene's finest musicians both in and out of the studio and has been developing new material with award winning Australian music legend Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil) as co-producer and engineer and Niall Anderson (Gin Wigmore) in the Producers chair. The team have sinced released a single and film clip in early 2014 featuring acclaimed actor Luke Carroll for the tender enigmatic exquisite soul ballad Everything.
Everything soars from its gentle rhythmic poise into a paean of strings and spare but joyfully restrained guitar and as always, Leah’s voice is the lynch-pin, ushering a reverent melody through grooves evoking the uncomplicated love of a classic era.
From strikingly simple and direct solo recordings, to numerous festival and television appearances Leah Flanagan has built a career on always looking ahead – taking that next creative leap to make something that inspires her as much as her audiences.
