Leah Laurenti is a singer /songwriter born and raised in Long Island NY. Leah started singing and writing songs at a very young age. Her vocal style is jazzy and soulful with a touch of pop. Theres a smokiness to her voice that lures you in to every performance.
As a teenager, Leah was constantly auditioning for school plays and talent shows. She's always loved music and entertaining people. "It's the one thing I will always be good at." - Leah Laurenti
In 2009 Leah tried out for Season 9 of one of America's most popular shows, American Idol. She made it to Hollywood with a "Yes" from all four judges including Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi & guest judge Victoria Beckham. Leah made it to the top 90 out of 125,000 people that season. Even though she was eliminated at “group rounds” that season Leah did not let that stop her from trying out again. In 2011 for season 10 Leah made it to Hollywood once again. Shortly after Idol, Leah had the opportunity to sing The National Anthem for the NY METS and the LI Ducks. She was also invited to perform with her band at B.B King Blues Club in Times Square.
Come 2013, Leah started working on a brand new original album. For this album she wanted to focus on her life and her journey in the music industry. Her lyrics and emotion are felt throughout the album. She writes from the heart and expresses her feelings with each word and each note.
In November 2014 Leah Laurenti’s first full length album was released to iTunes. There was a release party held locally at Napper Tandy’s in Smithtown, NY. All the proceeds for the release show were donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Since the release party, Leah and her band have been performing locally on Long Island and around NY. In June 2014 Leah and her band were invited to sing at the famous Daryl’s House, and what a night it was!! “It was a dream come true for me! I love Daryl Hall and I have always wanted the opportunity to feel the energy of his venue and sing there. It has been one of my favorite musical memories” -Leah
Leah continues to pursue her dreams and will never stop singing or writing music. "There is power in words and music and I want to touch lives, help people, tell my stories and bring real music back into the industry." -Leah
