Leanne Meyer will be performing outside this Saturday during our Farmers’ Market from 8:00am – 10:30am
With the release of her debut EP, “Bittersweet Remedy”, Leanne Mayer has announced herself as a unique and exciting new voice in London, Ontario’s indie music scene. The record features Leanne’s whimsical blend of jazz, blues, old school country, and pop folk. The five songs are a carnival of styles, from the sultry “See Through Lies” to the bouncing “Renegade” and melancholy “Whatever Will Be.”
Together, they represent the work of an artist who isn’t afraid to experiment, or to explore matters of the heart. Her raw, honest lyrics and soulful voice tell stories of loss and hope, coloured by just the right amount of world-weary wisdom and determination. In fact, Leanne is currently nominated and has won a prestigious Forest City London Music Award in the Contemporary Singer/Songwriter category in 2019.
Her music has been featured nationally on CBC radio and is developing a dedicated following at her live shows (her EP release shows in London and her native Kirkland Lake, Ontario both sold out). She was a featured artist at London’s Home County Music & Art Festival in 2019, and opened for Cat Clyde on her North American Hunter’s Trance Tour.
After releasing two live-off-the floor singles in 2020 (“The Devil You Know and See Through Lies”) Leanne is currently working on her much anticipated full-length album with projected release in 2022.
Backed by a full band, London’s “lounge pop queen” is ready to take her career as far as it can go. As Leanne Mayer’s story continues to unfold, one thing is sure: Bittersweet Remedy is just the beginning!
