Biography Kayleigh Leith

Daughter of a school teacher and stay at home mother, Kayleigh never fell short of attention. Kayleigh and her father sang in church, parties and even had a karaoke machine at home that they would spend hours on. Kayleigh loved being the center of attention and right in the spotlight. After initially pursuing a career in music education, she decided to give that up because, as she says, "I wanted to sing music more than teach music"

Kayleigh's free spirit attitude, visions of big dreams and the love of her life led her to a move to Europe. Kayleigh listens to her heart and lives by the motto, "everything happens for a reason", so with this in mind, Kayleigh made her situation positive even when the waters were raging, and during this storm of emotions she wrote some of her best songs. Kayleigh never considered herself a songwriter, she just told her story which turned out to be the start to a whole new path in her career.

These stories Kayleigh told started to get attention from many people when she took the songs public and started playing them at parties and local venues. She gathered her best songs and with the help of a few investors and some money saved she went to the big city to record at one of the most prestigious recording studios in New York called The Cutting Room. The result was her debut album 'Miles Away', an album on the edge of pop and country with a title that was very appropriate for Kayleigh's weary heart in the time of homesickness and despair.

After the album received great reviews worldwide, Kayleigh took her positive and excited attitude on the road for the 'Miles Away' Tour. She played radio shows, club shows and festivals throughout Europe and the USA. The two highlights of the tour

were her performance in the Bluebird Café in Nashville, TN and her first USO show for the US troops in Germany.

During a tour stop in Nashville in 2012, Kayleigh took some time to write with some of Nashville's top songwriters. One of those writers was Rob Crosby. Rob penned tracks for people like Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride and many others. Rob took Kayleigh under his wing and the two set off on creating Kayleigh's second album. Kayleigh really wanted that Nashville New Country sound, so she returned to Music City later that year to start recording her second album called 'This Woman' with Rob Crosby as acting producer. It also features some of Nashville’s top talent such as country superstars Eric Paslay and Rose Falcon.

“This Woman” was released on September 12th 2013 and received outstanding reviews by the country media all over Europe and North America. She was even named one of Country Music’s Best Newcomers by American country sites; Yallw ire.com and Countrysite.com. The release was followed by 2 European tours and a spot on the main stage at the Pittsburgh 3 Rivers Arts Festival in 2014.

In early 2015 the time had come for Kayleigh to say goodbye to Europe and to make the move to Nashville, TN. During previous stops in Nashville, Kayleigh fell in love with the city and she is excited to continue her career in the heart of country music.

So, if you ever find yourself wandering on the streets of Music City, and you hear this beautiful, breathy voice coming out of a pint-sized girl with luscious brown hair, you'll know that's her, dancing on the edge of forever, under her van Gogh sky where the possibilities are always endless.
