Debut Single: Little Lady Blues

Coming March 2019

About

Hailing from both London and Co. Donegal, she began writing songs at age 15 after listening to the full recordings of the 1930’s blues player Robert Johnson. After an appearance at the Cambridge folk festival in 2013, Leila Jane was described as ‘’Somewhere between Janis Joplin and Sandy Denny’’. Since then Leila has been gigging widely and travelling to the USA to pick up inspiration for her songs. Taking influences from all genres of American roots music, Hot Press Magazine stated ''Donegal Native Leila Jane evokes the best of classic blues while adding a fresh, native twist. Her vocals and guitar playing call to mind the sultry folk of Karen Dalton''. 


In 2015 she received the Imelda May scholarship to study songwriting at BIMM Dublin. Here, she has passionately developed her sound and brought together some top musicians to play in her band. They include rock n' roll guitar playing from Stuart, Alice providing the grooving heartbeat on bass and Danni on drums; coolly locking in foot stomping and body swaying rhythms. 

Her EP Decision Maker was described as ''one of the best Irish EPs of 2017'' by music blogger Remy Connolly.
