Album Notes
Other CDs also available by Leah-Carla Gordone: "Dancing On The Dragon," and "Phoenix From The Ashes: Rise." For link, scroll down to "TRY THIS."

"Leah-Carla Gordone is a powerful, authentic singer who lives her music by voicing her convictions through her passionate, poetic songs. In a way, she's a throwback to the best traditions of the sixties, but she simultaneously leads the cutting edge of the new millennium for those who appreciate music as substance rather than style and hope for it to 'light the way.'" - Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul & Mary)

"From her very first song, 'Let it Flow', NYC - born Leah-Carla Gordone shows you what she's all about right up front: Passion...Gordone mesmerizes the audience...On stage, Gordone's style is not unlike that of Ani DiFranco, yet there is something more raw about her presence...Ani DiFranco might have a lot of balls, but Leah-Carla Gordone is the whole package." - Stacy E. Lukasavitz, femmusic.com

Leah-Carla Gordone is a powerful vocalist... sometimes reminiscent of other strong female singers, including Patti Smith, Melissa Etheridge and Grace Slick, but more often she is working on her own, highly identifiable sound (Kingston NY Freeman Preview).

Butterfly Child grabs you from the very beginning of its opening track (Rain Down) and carries you through its entire length. Leah-Carla's husky, yet smooth vocals and picture-painting lyrics will guarantee that this CD will find its way into anyone's CD collection. Aaron Childs, DJ, The Audio Realm, WCSR-FM, Hillsdale MI

Imagine naked poetry - exposed emotions, then lightly and carefully clothed in music. Leah-Carla embroiders her soul into her shadowy acoustic music and reveals songs that are musically touching and vocally emotive (1999 Boston NeMO Music Showcase Artist Review)

A fascinating new voice ... a quality to her singing shared by the greatest women singers, like Piaf, Joni Mitchell, Billie Holiday - a sense of emotional intimacy and confiding ... [She is] a rose creeping from fissures in graffiti-stained concrete - Woodstock Times.

Multi-talented young singer/songwriter/musician Leah-Carla Gordone has performed her own music from the East Village to Woodstock, from Boston to Key West to Los Angeles. She was one of 200 performers (selected from 1000 submissions) at Boston's 1999 NeMO Music Showcase and Conference. She is an Indiegrrl Approved Performer and is receiving airplay across the country.

Pepper Mcgowan/inky Midnight Music

it gets better each listen
I was lucky enough to share a stage with her a couple of times. Leah, do another album. Soon! And if you can catch her live, it's even better. She does some songs not on the album that you'll want to take home with you too. Very good stuff all around!

Summer Droit

An energizing performer, full of the lust for life and a beautiful person
This CD is a masterpiece of emotion and energy, Leah is a mesmerizing performer and it really comes through on this disc.

Christina York

this beatiful woman moved me into a strong hold on our connection in life...I h
the music Leah gave me was so moving... it was the tonic of kerrville. When life was pulling me down she rapped her songs around me and pulled me up...she has an amazing way of conveying her thoughts through not only her words but,
her voice and her beautiful guitar...what energy and love!!

I Never Realized How Much I Liked This Album
This CD grows on me every time I hear it, but I never realized how wonderful and memorable it was until I found myself singing along at the top of my lungs to Leah-Carla's song 'Rain Down'. This album does not disappoint.

Ben Parker

I have a new CD that I share with all my friends
Each time I listen to the CD, I hear something new and good. Leah's CD is a gift of her lyrics, her music and herself. Mortified, New Beginnings and the other songs show Leah to be a strong, thoughtful and multi-talented artist. Thank you Leah.

Haunting melodies, Poetic lyrics, Inspiring messages
A fabulous debut from a very talented artist. Butterfly Child will get your feet to dancing, bring your lips to singing, and leave your mind asking questions you may never have wondered about before. How refreshing it is to hear from this young lady who pours her heart and soul into her lyrics and music. B.C. demonstrates an artist with a real passion for the world we live in, and an ability to intrigue others to "love the rain again"!


I have been looking for a musician like her for years.
I have to say that the music on this cd really moves me. There is power and emotion deep inside this woman and she is not afraid to let it out. Keep on rockin. I listen to the album over and over and each time I do I feel like I want to hear it again.
