Leah King is the voice that soothes our hearts and souls. Forged through years of writing, perfecting and toiling, her songs cut through the fluff and into the center of your being. A perfectionist with her words, she writes from her life experiences as well as light-hearted fictions. Her sound is uncomplicated and organic, drawing from an acoustic palette of timeless instrumentation.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, one of the musical mekkas of the world and daughter to brilliant songwriters and musicians, her father William King (The Commodores) and her mother Shirley Hanna King (lyricist of “Brickhouse”, “Lady, You Bring Me Up” and more) she has the gift of song in her blood. This same blood also flows in her brother Noah King, rapper/singer whom with she has collaborated and released music with in Japan in 2011.
Leah has been performing and busking for the last 2 years at the Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade, honing her performance skills like so many before her on the cold hard streets to all who pass by, selling her bedroom demo’s accumulated over the years. As a firm believer in the necessity of human empowerment, she has enjoyed performing at showcases such as, "Wonder Women LA" (2014), "New Earth Expressions" (2015), "LoveStock" (2013), "Inspired Women of Los Angeles" (2014), and many many more performances including "The Soul Train Awards" (2014) singing backgrounds for soul/pop artist, Aloe Blacc and appearing at venues throughout LA and San Diego like Ghengis Cohen and The Largo. During the fall of 2014, Leah was part of the "Grand Life Acoustic Tour", a trio of independent singer/songwriter females crooning the west coast of America for 3 ½ weeks.
Leah has also been featured in “ADDitude” Magizine in both their print and online publications for her song “High on Adderall” and featured on the blog, “Self-Actualization Through Women’s Empowerment”
for performing her a’capella rendition of “What it Feels like For a Girl”, by Madonna, as well as part of the soundtrack for indie film, “Leaving Limbo” released in 2011.
Now she is collaborating constantly and leaning towards a publishing and/or licensing deal so that she may continue moving in directions that stimulate her growth as a human being and artist. With a demo of over 30 original songs featuring raw performances and productions in a storytelling style true to the meaning of her songs, she is open and looking forward to the future by living fully in the present.
