Arizona based songwriter, KALEAH has been singing and writing songs since early childhood. She spent years recording her original songs only to collect them in a shoebox beneath her bed. Her debut solo CD release "From The Shadows" released in January 2000, is symbolic of her decision to share her music with the world. As she emerged from the closet as a performer, Kaleah found a welcoming audience; one craving music with soul and substance, lyrics with profound messages and emotional depth.
As a writer, Kaleah is very prolific. Writing has been easy for her, normally taking no more than an hour or two at the most to develop a song. She will typically have three or more new songs a month that come to her as a result of some life experience requiring expression. Her songs become a catalog of her journey through life. In local venues Kaleah is known for her powerful inspiring songs and hauntingly beautiful ethereal voice.
Kaleah has studied Classical voice extensively in College and in private instruction. She is self-taught at the piano, her primary accompaniment. She grew up playing the piano by ear, singing in the choir and swing choir and playing flute in her high school band. Kaleah started singing in a rock band at age 16 with early influences such as Heart, Fleetwood Mack and Pat Benetar. She continued in the rock genre through her mid 20''s until she became frustrated and burned out with the rock scene and began following her heart. The result is a sound that is uniquely Kaleah.
The music itself could be classified as "Adult Contemporary" or "Vocal New Age". Kaleah accompanies herself on the piano and plays flute on several of her recordings. Although her voice is often soft and breathy, Kaleah holds nothing back as she belts out lyrics with a pure, raw, uncensored and emotional delivery. She is often compared to artists such as Joni Mitchell, Sara McLachlan, Tori Amos, Loreena McKennitt and even Carly Simon.
Kaleah''s music reaches people on an International level through the Internet and radio airplay. Her music can also be heard on several compilations throughout the Country and on the award winning film "Lessons of the Heart" with Arizona based Filmmaker Thomas McArthur.
