ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Leah West is Canada's newest Indie-Pop Sensation. Leah West is the winner of the 2011 BCIMA "People's Choice Award" and she was also nominated for 3 other awards, including "Songwriter of the Year" "Single of the Year" and "Pop/Contemporary Recording of the Year". Leah's songs are currently playing on both major and indie radio, as well as over 100,000 commercial buildings. She is consistently one of the most popular artists on Reverbnation, MyBand on Facebook, and has over 1 million plays on MySpace, and has accumulated more than 70,000 friends and fans through her various social networks! She is currently writing for multiple soundtracks, as well as promoting her November 2012 release of her sophomore album "Speechless". An incredibly prolific lyricist and songwriter, she has penned over 150 songs to date with songs in many genres. She is currently working with the very talented producer, Marty Rifkin, who has worked with Bruce Springsteen, Jewel, Tom Petty, Elton John, Leann Rimes, Shawn Mullins, Dwight Yoakam, and Glen Campbell to name just a few. Leah is honoured to be working with such an exceptional talent. Leah has accomplished all this so far as an independent artist, without any support of a manager, agency, record label or grant-funding.

Leah West is a Canadian-American Singer-Songwriter who grew up in New Jersey, near New York City. "It is a huge melting pot of culture and it was a great place to grow up and be surrounded by fabulous music and entertainment from all over the world." Leah moved to Kelowna, BC, Canada in 2005 to immerse herself in the vibrant Canadian music scene. She travels extensively, but calls Kelowna, BC, Canada home. In addition to singing and songwriting, Leah is also a trained dancer (Garden State Ballet), actress (Lee Strasberg NYC), and visual artist who speaks English, Spanish and French. She is able work legally in the US, Canada, and Europe and is a member of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA), and NACA.org

After releasing her debut album "Beyond Words" in July 2009 to much public praise, she went on tour from coast to coast across the US and Canada with fellow musician Tom Stinson. She played venues from Vancouver to New York City and had performances on numerous television shows and radio stations, as well as being featured in many newspapers and magazines. Leah also received an explosion of publicity across Europe and North America when the producers of a very high profile starlet in Slovakia named Lucia Olešová entered Leah's song "Spring" illegally on the popular European contest Eurovision, which is watched by tens of millions. The starlet's producers renamed the song "Rok a Pol" and were passing off Leah's song as their own work. Eurovision has launched the careers of Celine Dion and ABBA. Thankfully Leah had all her legal documents in place to prove that she is the rightful author of the song. You can search Leah's YouTube profile to compare the songs and you'll see from beginning to end they are virtually identical. The story continues as Leah and Lucia work towards potentially redoing the song in another version, this time giving Leah the proper writing credits she deserves. While this scandal is a travesty on many levels, and should bring awareness to issues around theft in the music industry, it is certainly a testament to the quality of Leah's songwriting for 2 high-profile producers to risk their careers just to steal her work for a contest.

She's been winning over audiences with her clever lyrics, ingenious melodies, and her amazing voice. One minute you'll be moved to tears with her soft, ethereal ballads and the next be blown away and rockin' to her upbeat tunes. Leah's songs can be light and quirky, or deep, thought-provoking and soulful. Her voice is powerful, captivating and soaring with a hint of grit. Infectious hooks that will haunt you. People often tell her she left them with goosebumps.

Next up for this award-winning artist is a 2013 release of her first French language album. Leah is currently working with top producers, authors and composers from Quebec and France for this album. She is also currently writing and recording new music for her 2014 release of her third English language album. Stay tuned! :-)
