Recently named the "Top (Unsigned) Female Singer" in the Atlanta/Metro area by the readers of www.atlantacountrymusic.com, LeeSa Biddy is making quite a name for herself in the country music industry. "Singing has always been my passion. For as far back as I can remember, there has always been music in my life." LeeSa attributes her love of music to her father who played in several bands throughout her childhood years, and her mother known for always having music playing on the family stereo.
It wasn't until the age of 19 that LeeSa discovered just how much of an influence the music had on her. She auditioned for her first band 'Making Trax' and says "that was it for me, I was hooked!" Unfortunately the band broke up when their lead guitarist was killed in an automobile accident. It was during that same time period that LeeSa began her experience with Star Search. "I'll never forget that phone call!", making reference to the phone call she received inviting her to Hollywood. "I wasn't able to be in town for the open auditions, as I was recording in Nashville. So I mailed a video audition in and didn't hear anything for nearly a year. I honestly had forgotten all about it. You can imagine my surprise when I got the call!" She describes the experience as one of the highlights of her career, tying a five-time champion with an original song!
Since Star Search, LeeSa has gone on to open for many national acts, performing for festivals as large as 200,000 plus! Touring the Gulf Coast area for a period of 8 years with her band, LeeSa Biddy's lil' Biddy Band, she has opened for Tracy Lawrence, Joe Diffie, Mark Chesnutt, T. Graham Brown, The Bellamy Brothers, and many others and bacame well established as a crowd favorite.
LeeSa is now the lead female singer for the band 151 at Cowboys Atlanta in Kennesaw, Georgia, and has been tearing up the stage opening for acts that include Dwight Yoakam, John Michael Montgomery, Josh Gracin, Jason Aldean, Trick Pony and Jamey Johnson.
As Allen Coefield, President and Founder of Atlanta Country Music.com, comments...
"LeeSa Biddy is more than just another pretty face with a mic in front of it. She is as talented as anyone in the industry today and performs with an energy and passion that draws people to the stage everytime she steps on it.
Everyone is LeeSa's friend, and everyone feels special and appreciated when she performs. This happens because LeeSa has the ability to make every person firmly believe she is singing directly to them whether they are in the front of the back of the concert hall. Her on stage personality draws people to the stage to be close to her and when they arrive they get eye contact with a versatile and talented professional who no only can sing, but has fun doing so!
The amazing part of this is, off the stage LeeSa is no different. She makes time to talk, laugh, share and learn with those who only moments before were admiring her as a performer. This is a sign of a professional who is what country music fans require of their favorite artists... Someone who is sincere.
If ever given the chance to show herself on a national level, I have no doubt that LeeSa Biddy could become one of the modern day icons of country music... and that is not something I say lightly."
LeeSa is currently enjoying the promotions and fan excitement associated with the release of her first and much anticiapted cd, "A Chance To Change The World"!!!
