She played her first show when she was 15, covering both Monster by Eminem (all 3 rap verses) and Don’t Know Why by Norah Jones. While Leah’s distinct influences might seem to contradict each other, there is a defining point that they all share: they tell a story.
At 18, she moved to Nashville to pursue those stories and to pursue those sounds. Having opened for artists such as Jon Bellion, Louis Tomlinson, and Lizzo, Leah understands not only the power of performance, but the power of owning your story and using it to empower others. When listening to Leah Sykes, you can hear her heart as she pours her insecurities, love and failures into the lyrics in that ground between the ‘Locker Room and Mini-Van’.
