Celtic Fantasy Metal
Surely such a success story must mean Leah is churning out albums full of radio-friendly pop music, but that assumption would be wrong. Her chosen musical genre is as obscure as her background. She writes Celtic fantasy metal, and if you don’t yet grasp what that is, just think, Leah is the heavy metal version of Enya.
“In my teen years, I really got attracted to heavy metal, and also Celtic artists such as Enya, Loreena McKennitt, and then legendary singer, songwriters like Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos.”
Added to this is the fact that Celtic music is in her blood since her family heritage finds roots in the British Isles and the Celts. Like her fans, Leah is fascinated by the legend and lore of Celtic fantasy and that passion fuels her music.
“Inspiration often comes from places I’ve been, photos, and fantasy films and TV shows. I tend to bank it all up and then it comes out one day while I’m doing something mundane like doing the dishes.”
