Leigh Ann Phillips' original vocals and instrumentals are a dynamic blend of pop, chamberfolk and contemporary, which she lovingly calls Orchestral Americana. A few dashes of jazz, rock and blues add spice to the mix. Often compared to Judy Collins, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith and even Elton John, Leigh Ann writes songs that range from the ever popular theme of romance to celebrations of the beauty of the planet. Each song then takes on its own spirit which determines the style of music. There is a thread of beauty that weaves all of her music together, regardless of the genre. When the words point out trouble and inequity, the melody reminds us of the joy and balance that is still around us.
The song, "Just Over Those Mountains" is a previous winner of the Silverton Jubilee Songwriting competition as well as a songwriting award in England.
Sometimes we live our love on the road. Sometimes our love is waiting "Just Over those Mountains."
