21 and over
Leo is a pianist and singer wanting to compound those two skills in a way she never had before. She began lessons with the piano at five and stuck with it ever since. She grew up playing an old family piano passed down through the generations and would follow her mother around as she led church choir, directed musicals, and conducted the high orchestra. Mother was her first music teacher but lessons in oboe, french horn, and voice soon followed as well as time in bands, orchestras, and choirs of all kinds. After spending 2 decades of singing words and playing music composed by other people she decided to try writing her own. This is after discovering great singer songwriters like Nike Lowe, Stephan Merritt, Bill Withers, Neko Case; and wanting to create something as powerful as a song that means something to a someone you've never met.
