Leah Orlikowski is a Acoustic Guitarist/Vocalist/Songwriter from Conifer, CO.
Leah's vocals have bluesy tendencies, strong and steady with a bit of softness, clear with a bit of smoke. Her guitar work is obliged to get out of the way of vocals, backing off when need be or dropping out all together. Leah's songwriting paints vivid pictures to help the audience see what they are hearing.
Leah says about herself: "I got my start when I came out of the womb and cried to the beautiful music of life……or so it's romantic to say. However, I do know that my love affair with music started very young, my father being a catalyst. My father a musician himself and a lover of all types of music, introduced me to some of the greatest music ever made. I started singing with my dad when I was about 12 at parties for our friends and found my voice and confidence this way.
Throughout high school I sang in choir and musicals but didn't begin playing an instrument until I was 18. For my 18th birthday, my Uncle Phil (my dad's brother) made me my first guitar. Along with my voice, this guitar would serve as the vehicle for the musical adventures to come.
