I first saw Leah singing at a Welsh Factor heat and was very impressed with both her voice and her performance, as I was with a number of acts on the bill that evening.
I spoke to Leah and her mum and arranged for them to come to the studio, record a couple songs and just have a bit of fun.
Leah is 14 years old but you really wouldn’t have known that as she put on the headphones, went up to the mic and started singing.
A natural both on stage and in a studio environment.
We only took a few photos so when putting this video together I found a mobile phone video on her Youtube channel and mixed that in so you could get a feel for her stage presence as well.
This track is virtually a raw recording with only a very basic mix and master.
I hope to record more with Leah over the months ahead at which point we’ll spend a lot more time on each track.
