Leesa type

Singer-Songwriter Leesa Richards is a storyteller, a soulful voice offering a soundtrack to the narratives of life. Her sound taps into the deep roots of R&B, the poetry of jazz and folk and the energy of rock. Her debut solo album, Mother’s Child, is a beautiful organic blend exploring love and loss.

As a part of Miami’s vibrant music scene, she’s helping to shape and define its evolving sound.

Richards has performed with a slate of powerhouse artists including Faith Hill, Whitney Houston, The Bee Gees, Gloria Estefan, Jon Secada, Julio Iglesias and Oleta Adams and has recorded with Barbra Streisand and Lenny Kravitz. She played the role of Mary Magdalene in the national tour of Jesus Christ Superstar and has sung on numerous television commercials.


 

 

 


Review on CD Baby

This is a wonderful recording from a very talented artist. The CD contains all original music composed by the artist. Leesa Richards’ voice has a warm, lyrical, almost familiar tone. The music is performed by a tight and talented band, and the recording is mixed perfectly. The lyrics are genuine and mature, touching but not overly sentimental. The CD doesn’t just stick to one theme, which allows you to enjoy a full expression of Leesa Richards’ talent. It’s impossible to not like this CD.
