Music - Pop
With the release of her debut EP, Bittersweet Remedy, Leanne Mayer has announced herself as a unique and exciting new voice in London, Ontario’s indie music scene.
Her powerful voice gravitates between sweet and snarly, conjuring a delightful, cabaret-style pop sound that is entirely her own. The record features Leanne’s whimsical blend of jazz, blues, old school country, and pop folk. The five songs are a carnival of styles, from the sultry “See Through Lies” to the bouncing “Renegade” and melancholy “Whatever Will Be.”
Together, they represent the work of an artist who isn’t afraid to experiment, or to explore matters of the heart. Her raw, honest lyrics and soulful voice tell stories of loss and hope, coloured by just the right amount of world-weary wisdom and determination. In just two short years, she has become a solo artist to watch – and people are definitely watching.
In fact, Leanne won a prestigious 2019 Forest City London Music Award in the Contemporary Singer/Songwriter category. She also featured regularly on CBC London and CHRW radio, and is developing a dedicated following at her live shows (her EP release shows in London and her native Kirkland Lake, Ontario both sold out).
