Kansas City native Leah Watts was singing before she could talk. Listening to Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, and Carrie Underwood, she took an internship in Nashville at a songwriting company. There she learned the ins and outs of songwriting. In fact, she wrote three original songs while she was there.
Since then, Leah has continued to write about her own experiences. To her “music is something we turn to in hard times and joyous ones.” With that in mind, Leah plans to release a debut album in the coming year. A story from beginning to end reflecting on the highs and lows in life. Hoping to inspire others, she has been involved with multiple benefits including Cure SMA Walk-n-Roll and the R.Y.A.N. Suicide Benefit Soccer Game. These experiences lead to Leah starting her own non-profit, Women on the Rise with a mission to educate, elevate, and empower women in all aspects of music and the music industry.
Looking back at her own experiences performing, Leah most enjoys the intimate feel and collaborating during writers rounds. You can listen to Leah’s latest single “Poison in My Heart” on all streaming platforms and on her website.
