Rock Is Red #15 - Leah Shenandoah

We've profiled enough artists in our time to know that one has their whole lives to make their debut album and in the case of singer songwriter LEAH SHENANDOAH (Oneida Iroquois Wolf Clan) that journey began as a child under the tutelage of her mother - the pioneering recording artist JOANNE SHENANDOAH. Growing up LEAH has shared the stage as well as harmonies with her mother and before she knew it a seed was planted and had sought to create music of her very own. The results of those years of discovering new sounds and textures and honing her own voice have resulted in her 2014 album SPEKTRE - a stunning collection of songs that showcase LEAH as her own musical entity with emotional and musical range to spare.  LEAH's first outing as a solo artist has already earned her acclaim and a NATIVE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARD for DEBUT ARTIST OF THE YEAR on the strength of SPEKTRE and is now setting her sights on a brand new album. Despite a lifetime filled with music, we get a strong sense that LEAH's musical journey is only beginning.
