Leigh Harrison/ Eclectic Chanteuse
Leigh Harrison is a singer/songwriter with roots in folk, rock, country, and the blues, and has created a body of songs that cover all those bases as well as songs that are drawn from where these genres converge: country-rock to blues-rock to country blues. Her first collection, 'Eclectic Chanteuse' also features a Hawaiian-style song ('My Aloha Baby'), a tribute to the people who died during 9/11 ('Grey Roses') and a poem set to music ('What Any Lover Learns'). Pre-release copies of this CD led people to describe it as 'the Dixie Chicks meet Eric Clapton,' because of the country-flavored vocals and Bobby Perfect's smooth, bluesy guitar. Others have said 'a delicious journey from first song to last' with lyrics that range from haunting jazzy pop ('Once in a Blue, Blue Moon') to sassy, whimsical country rock ('Can't Wait to Love You'). Leigh Harrison is an excellent songwriter. Ms. Harrison has a voice that handles power pop, Chicago-style blues-rock and sensitive ballads with equal taste and style. Anyone who enjoys superb lyrics, cool guitar, and glistening production values won't be disappointed.
