Hey! I'm Leah! And my life is cliche complete... but true! My Mom says that I could sing before I could talk, when I was little I put on shows and wanted to be on camera ALL THE TIME, people think I am a little weird, and... I was in fact inspired (like so many other young girls my age) by Taylor Swift!
This is my story...
At the ripe old age of 10 years old, Leah Burkey met Taylor Swift, and it was then and there that Leah announced that she wanted to be a country music star. And, she meant it.
By the age of 11, Leah was performing at local fairs and events. Influenced by a huge array of modern pop and country artists, at just 15, Leah has truly become an accomplished musician herself, and an incredibly talented pop/country singer songwriter.
Leah's drive and enthusiasm are evident in all that she does - she taught herself to play guitar, mandolin and piano - and her songs are not only clever and well written, but are truly radio friendly hit material.
Leah enjoys performing live, and has performed not only in her home state of PA and neighboring MD opening for acts such as Ronnie McDowell, Frankie Ballard and Colt Ford, but also in Nashville, at the Commodore Grille, Nashville Palace and the Blue Bird Cafe. As an acoustic solo artist or with a full band, her infectious smile and crowd pleasing music continue to wow young and old alike.
With her parents support, Leah recently recorded three brand new original songs in Nashville, and the result is an amazing collection of songs - "Jump", "You & Me Against the World", and "The Game".
In May, she recorded a video for "The Game" which showcases not only her musical talent, but her amazing ability to light up the screen. This video caught the attention of APA Talent Agency and she was officially signed to their roster as of October 7, 2012.
She has "it"!
Leah is funny and sweet, a down-to-earth deserving young lady who is wise beyond her years!
