With a strong Celtic & Fantasy connection, prog rock elements, ethereal ambiance, combined with traditional Symphonic Metal elements, this is an album LEAH is very proud to present.
The concept for "The Quest" is very simple: we're all on a journey, and sometimes we lose our way. There are adventures, wildernesses, treasures, monsters, looters, people out to send us down the wrong path. Through it all, we must grow in wisdom and experience, find our compass once again and find our way back to the true path in order to reach our full potential: our destiny.

Immediately from the epic first song, “The Quest”, my imagination took flight, witnessing great ancient battles, listening to heroic tales, and gaining a glimpse of profound mysteries—it was truly a journey I wish to repeat again and again with each listen! Excellent album!
i really like the music
If I'm not mistaken, the name McHenry is among the list of families for whom the Banshee will wail, in Irish lore. Thus, the title of this album fascinated me. My best guess would be that the above obscure fact is not what this album is about, at all. I must admit that I was somewhat disappointed by that, but also must admit that my expectations were somewhere between highly and extremely unreasonable. Nonetheless, it was enjoyable, and musically superb. Would strongly recommend.
Beautiful voice, fantastic guitar. Everything I expected it to be. This is my second Album and there will be more xxx
I love your music
Great album! A good mixture of rock, Celtic, New age, and world music.
This is a wonderful company to work with. I ordered a CD and when it came the jewel case looked like a dragon had stepped on it. They sent a replacement out right away and were wonderful to deal with. I will be ordering from them again!
Leah's music is very unique and well created. The CD and cover-booklet with it is great to have for my collection of music.
I love the story telling that each track delivers, Leah’s voice is so hypnotic that your mind sees so many fantasy landscapes that you’re instantly transported to these worlds, and with the metal tempos in the music bring in the battles and armies marching towards them, all in all a fantastic album
A little late in the game when I discovered Leah but well worth the money.
I am still waiting for part of bundle from Nov. 26th 2019.I received the cd and that was it.Thank you if you could resolve this.
Leah has a beautiful voice and there are many talented musicians. Music is very intricate so first time it seems repetitious . Listening more the beauty comes out.
I came across Leah's work buy accident. What i found was described as celtic rock and this peaked my interest. I took a gamble and purchased the CD. Being from a celtic background i have always loved the haunting melodies and Leah's vocals are amazing and do justice to that rich heritage. Combining it with some heavy guitar riffs and powerful drums is a match made in heaven. The sound created sends you to fantasy worlds that you would imagine be populated with Elves and other mythical creatures. If you haven't listened to her music yet take that same gamble.
I just happened to find the quest on Facebook and I love Celtic music. My son tracked down our ancestry and found out my family started in Ireland in the 1500’s the spelling of our last name changed from Daulton to Dalton. Maybe that is why the music really gets to me. The magic part I live not being weird but the friendship and loyalty is one of the things I live about yes lord of the rings my wife she is a Harry Potter fan. It’s pretty good to
I LISTEN TO YOUR CD OFTEN BUT I AM VERY UNHAPPY THAT YOUR WINTER RELEASE HAS OTHER PERFORMERS. I DO NOT KNOW IF THEY ARE GOOD OR BAD BUT I DO KNOW THAT I WANT TO HEAR ONLY YOUR VOICE AND WITH METAL. I CANNOT SUPPORT YOUR CHOICE AND THEREFORE WILL NOT BUY YOUR WINTER ALBUM. I WISH YOU LUCK AND MAYBE YOU WILL RETURN TO AN ALBUM WHERE YOU SING ALONE.
I can’t get enough of the beautiful mix of Celtic and hard rock! I absolutely love it❤️
This cd is awesome.....its upbeat but relaxing at the same time....the lyrics are haunting and stick with me throughout the day.....a must buy for sure!!!!
I've been a fan of Leah for 3 years now and I have yet to be left wanting with her music. It is a refreshing chance to what is out there today.. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!!
This album is very good, and I find it relaxing and captivating all at once. I also could stare at the cover artwork for along time, until I almost feel as if I were there. I recommend this as something moving, and lovely!
after hearing the quest cd, all I can say is that it felt like my soul took a journey that my body has yet to take. It inspires me to look beyond the pale, and walk bravely into the unknown. This is an excellent CD and worth every penny spent.
The artwork on this album is absolutely amazing. It's honestly the reason I bought it. The music is extremely well performed and the vocals are great. I have it in the CD player in my car right now, in fact! I would totally recommend this album to people who like power or symphonic metal.
I love this cd... I also have the other cd’s and love Leah’s Music! A beautiful mixture of Celtic, Rock and Fantasy...
Today on other report by The Quest as a physical CD at Leah !
What I will say about this , great music and lyrics too , it is result by hard working and a very good position for more music !!!
Thanks so much for it Leah , and best wishes too you !!!
This is a fantastic collection of song.
'The Quest' cd is as great as the other three I have. I love all of your music! Like the others, 'The Quest' transports me to another reality.
Excellent album. A mix of symphonic and Celtic rock. The title track is just epic.
A very cool mixture of metal and etherial vocals that can be hard hitting as well.
I listened to this CD everyday on way to and from work for over a month straight, couldn't get enough of it!!!
Awesome music. Makes my drive to work much more enjoyable.
One of my favorite albums of 2018.
Excellent, best album so far!
I love the new CD, maybe even more than Kings & Queens.... but I love them all! Bought the CD because I like to keep the original physical product with the art & lyrics in my collection. But I mostly listen to it on my computer or in my vehicles via USB. It's about an 8-way battle for which song is my favorite so far.
The music is absolutely beautiful! You just feel so drawn into another realm. The artwork for The Quest and the presentation of the product is amazing. I look forward to buying another one of the CDs!
Love the music, it is the perfect balance of Celtic and Rock.
If you have listened to any of Leah's music you will love this Cd even more! If you haven't heard her beautiful voice, what are you waiting for!! The music, lyrics, the ambiance - just amazing. Leah, you did it again with wonderful stories weaved in your songs. Thank You!!
I preordered this album and it did not disappoint! Amazing as always!
Good morning LEAH. I must tell you that my standards are quite high. I worked for Elton John at Rocket Records in London and there are few musicians who could top him. I really love your latest album including you approach to artwork. Wonderful. Your voice is inspiring and worth the training you must have given it. I began my formal vocal training for opera. It gives lessons in how to strengthen the voice and how to push without damaging the voice. I will follow your career and commend you to the songwriting community in western Europe. Jimmy___
I LOVE the new album!! As always LEAH has put out an AMAZING cd!! I have all 4 of your cds and LOVE your music!! Please keep making incredible music!!
The music is very appealing to the senses. I am taken into each song with the percussion and bass melodies and then the vocals from Leah are at times ethereal. They spark the internal visual images back to a surreal landscape. Each song has its own unique plot and it starts and builds and then ends with perfection. It transcends me throughout time and it leaves you wanting more.
A lovely CD, Leah, as always, creates beautiful, evocative music. Can't wait to hear more!
As soon as I got home and checked the mail last weekend, I left for the gym and immediately threw it in the car. Love, love, LOVE the new cd and music! I am a long time fan of Leah's and look forward to more down the road as I enjoy what she has created so far.
A truly fantastic album! I've listened to it every day since I received it. This is definitely a new favorite of mine.
Well created and produced ..Very complex and verbal... Please release another song on youtube without lyrics embedded, so i can promote its enchanting mystical Celtic European heritage to frens .
The Quest is the first piece of Leah music that I have bought. I have been curious and listened to other songs - but I couldnt resist this album. The album begins with the appropriately titles 'The Quest' which awakes and arouses us to some beautiful music. It is a majestic opening to a great range of music. The song gives the listener an idea of the music that awaits them. There are lots of good songs, my favorites being ' Edge Of Your Sward' ( great choice for a single) and the Celtic sounding 'Ruins Of Illusion'. The musical journey is a good one and the album closes with the quiet song 'The Water Is Wide'. Its a good way to finish the album - it allows the listener to sit back, relax and reflect on what they have listened to. 5 stars from this listener - cant wait for more!
First track sets the mood of the album...excellent!
This is my fourth Leah cd,and I think it’s the best one yet. I really enjoyed the music, I just sat in my chair and let it take on a journey — a Quest you might say.
The QUEST is the most awesome project to date. I fell in love with the CD the moment it arrived. From track one to the last track OMG! She writes Nunnally to her heart but communicates successfully her Celtic rock style and music ability. This album is second to none and is the best project I’ve ever heard to the kings and Queens cd. I was in love with the song named Arcadia but now I love Ruins of illusion. If you combined the songs together with both albums why her musical writing and skills communicate successfully her passion singing ability and talent that she creates and communicates with. One day Leah I want to see you in concert but these albums including The Quest. Vinyl, CD, and the great digital download are second to none. I’m in love with the instrumentals. Thank you for creating this project. I listen to it from the moment I get up until I go to bed. I was up at a recent city in Pennsylvania and had my thousand 1000 sound system cranked up with the quest, ruins of illusion, and ghost upon the throne. I’m gonna throw these chains off and tell people to buy the album.
Absolutely LOVE the new album. Music is superb and case presentation is great. Thanks for the great music !!!!
Love the new music, for sure going on my iPod.
The most amazing album ever I have listened to it over and over. I will have to get another one cause the one I have maybe worn out in a week.
The signed CD arrived in good time and was in perfect condition. The music is great and it is still getting plenty of play time on my CD player!!
REALLY LIKE THIS ONE ! THANKS !
it was well worth the wait for this release the title track weighs in at just over ten minutes with fret melting guitar work.
its an experience beautiful artwork ,beautiful music.Right up my street.
This is a beautifully done album. No two of the songs sound exactly alike and they tell stories that are touching. I highly recommend this to anyone, even folks who would not normally be fans of this particular genre.
This is the best one yet! I am so glad I was able to buy a physical copy! My kids love the music as well, and we listen to it on the way to school!
Just got it in the mail, so I've only had the time to listen to it a couple of times. I love every single note of it, though. Too often, anticipation can lead to expectations that no one or nothing can live up to. This CD is all that I expected it to be anyway, and some parts even exceed. I love the blend of so many genres! Please keep creating outside the box, and thanks for your music!
Another great album by Leah. She has such an amazing voice. Every song on it is great. I love it.
Love the music. Up lifting, great drive time.
LEAH is the best thing I have found recently. I am a huge collector of music and symphonic metal has always been on my radar. However, LEAH is not just symphonic metal. What an amazing blend of sounds this band is capable of. You'd be really missing out if you do not own all of these albums. I am so lucky to have found out about this band (I believe it was a random e-mail or flyer from a record label that I am signed up with). Something that would be utterly amazing...I live show. Give us a tour! Good luck with all LEAH!
Amazing and beautiful it's beyond words. A must have album.
