Leah Weigel strives to create a musical experience that inspires and heals. As a current Music Therapy student at Berklee College of Music, she looks to magnify the power of music through her songwriting.
Leah identifies first as a writer and then as a musician of voice, piano, and guitar. She is fascinated by the marriage of words and music, which is evident in her strongly lyrical songs. She gathers inspiration from a variety of sources often including imagery of the natural world, words of encouragement, social injustice, peace, and lots of stories about people she loves and hypothetical people she makes up inside her head.
Leah grew up listening to artists such as Joni Mitchell, The Indigo Girls, Tracy Chapman, and Paul Simon, which inevitably sneak their influence into her songs. Although Leah does not confine herself to one genre, many would classify it as folk or folk/pop, although she dabbles in spoken word poetry, Children's Music, and piano compositions.

"What is my goal as a songwriter? I want to make people happy. I want to take what I see in the world, craft it into a song, and pour it back out again. I want to tell stories, give people hope, and inspire them."

"What is the hardest part about songwriting? Being vulnerable. But I like discovering those hidden parts of myself. Everyone has them and I want to prove that its okay to show it. We are fragile creatures. Art is a safe way to embrace our fragility."

"What is the best part of being a songwriter? As a Music Therapy student, there is nothing as rewarding as writing a song for a client and watching them heal or learn a new skill from it. As a musician I have the power to do amazing things, maybe even change people--I am learning that. When I write a deep song about something, my Dad will usually cry when he hears it. I joke that making people cry is my superpower."
