“If I were an instrument, I would be a Ukulele”

 Leah Felder was Born and raised in Malibu, California and spent her early years growing up on the beach, surfing and more recently paddle-boaring. Always surrounded by a musical family, Leah began to regularly sneak out of the house at 14 to perform shows at local clubs.

Leah Performs regularly as half of the duo Brandon and Leah. Her soulful, sultry voice, and undeniable stage presence led to her being named “Independent Front Person of the Year” by the Los Angeles Music awards. (Brandon and Leah are currently completing their first album for release in 2012)

Around a year ago, Leah discovered the Ukulele, which led to her solo Christmas album. California Christmas boasts a unique sound that is truly inspired by the west coast lifestyle, Aside from the title track, the album features traditional holiday songs that were selected by Leah because she felt they lend themselves to be arranged in a fresh way. Songs like “White Christmas”, “It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas”, and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” all showcase Leah’s voice and Ukulele in a refreshingly new style,

Why would she be a Ukulele? Says Leah: “A Ukulele is petite, humorous, and has a very free and tropical spirit”

With “California Christmas”, Leah Felder brings a whole new flair to the songs you know so well.
