Kenny & Leah have received critical acclaim from the media and music industry professionals:
“Touching and tender, powerful and poignant. Part of Leah’s appeal is her considerable talent... the rest (comes) from a genuine regard for her audience. She connects! too bad there is not a Grammy for heart and soul. She would surely scoop it up. It has been said that Leah sets songs ablaze, stir hearts, enliven memories and quiet souls.”
- The Tampa Tribune

“…I truly love Kenny and Leah’s version of ‘Hearts.’ A superb
interpretation of this wonderful classic. Leah’s voice fits this choice of music perfectly and together Kenny and Leah set the mood. Kenny’s playing is superb as usual. Listening to this beautiful music reminds me that Kenny Soderblom is probably the best saxophone player that I have every recorded.”

- Bruce Swedien -- Five time Grammy winner
Sound Engineer for Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson

“Kenny you always take care of business and it’s great you and Leah are doing your thing together.”
- Quincy Jones
