Welcome to the musical side of my life! As Leah Wolfsong I write, perform and record music that I believe contributes to peace, empowerment and vision. Lest there be any confusion, I am not Native American, as the name might seem to suggest. My intention is to describe my musical sensibility, which is informed by my love and respect of wolves and the way they sing together in community.
My music is influenced by many years in contemporary music, playing rock ‘n Roll, folk and blues in lounges, resorts, functions, festivals and even on cruise ships, up and down the East coast and into the Midwest. Eventually life on the road became tiresome and the urge arose to settle down and create music that expressed my heart and soul. Leaving the band life behind I struck out with just my voice and a drum and sought to find my way to contribute to peace and healing in the world.
Since then I’ve spent years playing my music in a wide variety of venues – festivals, concerts, gatherings, weddings, funerals, hospitals, hospice, on local access TV, in people’s living rooms . . . and over the years I’ve had the opportunity to work with many fine musicians and to be included on compilation CD’s with artists such as Layne Redmond (When the Drummers Were Women), Walkin’ Jim Stoltz (Musicians for Sustaining the Environment), and Brooke Medicine Eagle. My songs have been used on various documentary CD’s and included in songbook compilations.
All in all, it’s a great deal of fun to write and perform music that feels very real to me and that I believe contributes to the kind of world I’d like to live in.
My music is distributed through New Leaf Distributing Company and is also available here or on Amazon.com.
