Five Fingers

by Leah Kaufman

Acoustic singer-songwriter with a knack for stories set in compelling melodies. The sound may dip and dive between bluegrass, swing, contemporary singer-songwriter and Americana influences but the lyrics bring alive the character in each song.

Album Notes
I love writing songs that tell stories - the small boy trying to ride the big two-wheel bike, Demeter's panic to find her daughter Persephone, the goth girl falling for the buttoned-up guy in the cardigan sweater, and of course, the mainstay of single women in their 30's, songs of unrequited love. When I recorded this album in 1999 I knew enough about love to describe its poignancy and yearning and yet was old enough to imagine a time when I would look back on memories of love and their unique sweetness.

The album features some of Seattle's amazing singers and musicians: Marjorie Richards, Liz Savage, Janis Carper, Peter Weiss, David Keenan, Nova Devonie, David Lange, and Anthea Lawrence.
