Leah Kaufman

Contemporary singer-songwriter Leah Kaufman's musical roots go deep into old-time music and sensibility. This combination yields songs that tell compelling stories with fine finger-style guitar as well as well-honed flat-picking that adds driving rhythms to her songs.

Even when her songs slide over into bluegrass, swing or blues, the common core of exquisite lyrics, fine guitar work and a clear strong voice holds true. The melodies stick like glue - you're going to find yourself humming one of her songs as you go about the day, tapping your fingers on the steering wheel, dancing a bit in the kitchen as they play back in your head. And then you'll sit and listen to the CD again, captured again by this unique songwriter, her wit and viewpoint and the music that carries her ideas into the world.
