Singer/songwriter Janeen Leah grew up in Denver listening to Sarah McLachlan, Cocteau Twins, Jeff Buckley, Depeche Mode, Jellyfish, Led Zepplin, Michael Jackson, The Sundays, Harry Connick Jr. and Heart. Along with her love of these contemporary and diverse artists/bands, Janeen also has a love for Jazz greats such as Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. Her own unique musical style combines dynamic vocals, sophisticated musical structure and meaningful lyrics. Fans have commented that Janeen''s energetic and engaging performances draw the audience in to her sonic realm.
Says one fan, "Janeen uses sound the way painters use colors - its like her music exists in its own world, and when you hear it, you want to be in that world." Another Janeen Leah enthusiast said, "I think anyone can relate to her songs. They have a great pop appeal, yet they are sophisticated enough to challenge your ear, kind of like
Sting. I can definitely see her appealing to a massive audience." During high school she trained with Susan Draus (producer, composer/arranger Vices, New York City), who helped Janeen develop her talents and encouraged her to pursue her dream of a career in music. At the age of 18, she left Denver and headed to Hollywood on her own with her guitar in tow and enrolled in Musicians Institute.
There she recorded her debut EP Melting in Hazel with up-and-coming engineer Jeremy Oswin, (whose credits include work on the soundtracks for Titanic and The Grinch) and accomplished producer Tommy Reeves.
Janeen is an experienced professional singer, both in live and studio settings. Her credits include: live back-up vocals for recording artists PJ (Tidal Wave Records) and Kriya (Kriya Music Records); studio back-ground vocals for up-and-coming hip-hop group Numbs Guapo Records); writing and recording collaboration with Tushar Parte in India (Mythological Wine Music, Bollywood) to create the
single ''Wine of Consciousness'' -- an east meets west vibe. Janeen has also worked with New Zealand producer, Peter Kearns on tracks that will be featured on her upcoming album. Janeen is always writing, inspiration flows daily which results in an ever growing catalog of songs.
Janeen is currently playing at clubs throughout the LA area with a fan base growing steadily and rapidly. In either a full band, high energy setting or an intimate, acoustic setting; Janeen''s fans are equally captivated. Copies of her well-received debut EP Melting in Hazel have sold out.
