Bio

As a classically trained bassoonist, North Carolina-grown Leah Shaw has always been a musician at heart, but it wasn't until she moved to New York City that she truly caught the bug for performing and got downright serious about her knack for songwriting and playing the guitar.

As a classically trained bassoonist, North Carolina-grown Leah Shaw has always been a musician at heart, but it wasn't until she moved to New York City that she truly caught the bug for performing and got downright serious about her knack for songwriting and playing the guitar. She found her first audiences (and her vocal courage) busking in the subways of NYC, where she began testing out her original songs and perfecting her skills as a multi-instrumentalist.
“In the subways, I refined the art of overcoming awkwardness to play confidently in front of just about anyone. F Train people are my favorite." LEAH SHAW
Something was resonating in those stuffy, smelly subways; she always seemed to make her rent money busking. She realized she wasn't just a musician; she was an artist.
Leah released her first recordings on the 'I'm Just the Same' EP in May 2013 and launched her first tour the following summer. In November 2013, she beat out 22 other singer-songwriters at the Eddie Owen Presents: Open Mic Shootout at Red Clay Theater in Duluth, GA gaining her a nod from fellow musicians and attention from industry professionals, who judged the competition.
"If you've read Southern authors, you know there's dark, light, tragic and glorious within...sometimes in the same sentence. Well imagine that kind of insightful literature in lyric with the voice of an angel spreading it around. Leah Shaw has that kind of voice and that kind of song. I'm honored to have listened to this winner of the Open Mic Shootout in November 2013, at Eddie Owen Presents. She'll be one to be reckoned with." EDDIE OWEN, Musical Entrepreneur/Venue Owner
Leah has recently released several singles as well: I Went to War, Growing and One Shot. ‘Growing’ was picked up for a cable television sync license in June 2014. She continues to perform as a singer-songwriter, recording her own music and collaborating with other musicians. Her lyrical point of view and distinctive vocals are what captivate audiences most.
“Her music is excellent; she has a lovely sound that's at once evocative and exuberant.” PETER HAY, Twin Vision Triple A Radio Promotion
