Pop-Country phenom Leah Burkey is on the rise and it could not be at a better time. As a new generation takes the reins, American Country Music is being reinvigorated and drawing in a whole new audience of young demographic listeners.

Born in South-Central PA, Leah grew up with deep family ties to small town and country living and a strong sense of work ethic. At an early age Leah discovered Country Music and could not deny a passion to become a Country Music Artist. She began voice and guitar lessons, writing, recording and performing, and she never looked back.

Her first acclaimed debut album Right Road Now (recorded at Omni Sound in Nashville 2010) highlighted her first original song written about her recently deceased grandfather and touched the hearts of young and old alike. The album title single awarded her a spot on her hometown fair country radio stage opening for Frankie Ballard and garnered her first major radio play.

Her follow-up album (recorded independently in Nashville 2012) and original music video, The Game, gave her an undeniable foot in Nashville when a booking agency signed her to their roster along side acts such as Charlie Daniels and Travis Tritt. She began opening shows for Phil Vassar and Jo Dee Messina. With vast support from her booking agency and regional radio, the following year Leah would open for major headliners including Sara Evans, Colt Ford, Aaron Tippin, Sammy Kershaw, Joe Diffie, and Cassaddee Pope.

While Leah was still living in PA, she would travel back and forth to Nashville several times a year. She was finishing school and continuing to write and tour, but Leah convinced her family to finally make the move to Nashville so she could be that much closer to her dream. When approached about an opportunity to produce and record an album, along with engineering students at DarkHorse Institute in Franklin, a brand new project was born.

Her upcoming album, Just a Ghost was produced by both Leah and acclaimed Northeast Regional Artist, Jordan Davis (Kingsfoil, AstroLasso). Few could pull off such a polished, cohesive album as an independent artist, but Leah felt that with this project was a reassurance that this is what she was meant to do.

Her new songs are fueled by her explorations of banjo, lap steel, violins and Keith Urban influenced guitar solos, along with her love of indie-pop style synth and electronic flourishes. She is casually bewitching fans through abstract electronic twists, that Leah has artfully found a way to blend and that work. Her lyrics are simple and catchy, but with deeply real emotions of experience, she speaks to the hearts of listeners, not only her age, but of all generations. All of these elements point to an artist wise beyond her years. When paired with her edgy look, this fusion creates a punchy modern feel that is bringing a whole new young female presence to Modern Country Music.
