Leah Ashton
Pop music with Soul and Blues flavor
Hi, I’m Leah. I’m a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and performer who lives in Los Angeles. I started to write an informative biography about myself, but it got a little #boring. Then I began to wonder, “does anyone actually read these things?” In case you are one of the lucky people who does, here are some (short and sweet-ish) things you might like to know:
When I grow up, I’d like to be some combination of Carole King, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Bonnie Raitt, Eva Cassidy, Aretha Franklin, Susan Tedeschi, and Sara Bareilles. I love the music these ladies make and I’d like to think that my music reflects their influence in some way.
I grew up in the Akron area of Ohio. (Go Cavs!)
I studied music at Anderson University in Indiana, and I was signed to the university’s record label, Orangehaus Records. With that label I released a self-titled 5 song EP, and also two singles: my own version of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, and an original song “After the Rain”. You can listen to and purchase that music here
