Album Notes
Who knew that a guitar, a web cam, and an internet connection could lead to a career change?

Leesha had played music for years in a variety of venues but never considered it more than a hobby. But in 2007, on a whim, she started posting videos of her singing her original songs on YouTube. Within months, her videos were receiving thousands of hits, and fans were asking, “Where can I buy the CD?”

Soon Leesha took her guitar out of the spare bedroom and into live gigs, quickly gaining local fans that were delighted to find her online videos. Again, they asked, “Where’s the CD?”

Hence, “Penny in the Pocket”—Leesha’s debut release—was born. Featuring full studio versions of 12 original songs, as well as a bonus spoken track, the album is sure to delight old fans and win new ones as well. Her thoughtful lyrics show a surprising depth of insight into the human condition, and her melodies range from toe-tapping grooves to goose-bump inducing ballads. “Penny in the Pocket” is one album you don’t want to miss.

Penny in the Pocket
Nice cd and I'm enjoying it. I think you have a great career ahead of you and wish you the best of luck.

Doug Petty

Penny in the Pocket
This CD is like no other, because Leesha is a singular talent. Twenty years from now, people will listen to this CD, as today we listen to Joni Mitchell's - Blue and Carol King's - Tapestry. Still unable to pick our favorite song. As Patty Griffin is an angel come to earth to soothe our souls, Leesha is the heir apparent. Do yourself a favor and buy it!

This is a great CD with no fillers. I stumbled onto Leesha while searching for Dar Williams (she has a Dar Williams cover on You Tube) and was instantly hooked on her music. I also enjoyed her entertaining "conversation" before playing the song. Songs have depth and are not your basic love song or break up song. Buy and enjoy!

F@*#ing Sweet!
I usually dont listen to this kind of music, but after hearing her originals on youtube I had to get CD. Leesha is a real poet and a talented musician to say the very least. I should have ordered two though. I loaned my copy out and now its making its way through all my friends. I sure hope I get it back. Great job Leesha. Cant wait for whats next.

So good!
Thank you Leesha. A really great album. Especially love 'Runyararo' because of it's pull on my heart too. Top quality; would recommend (and have done) to all.

Just like to say good luck with all your music present and in the future. My wife and I really enjoyed your music. We will keep in touch on youtube from time to time to hear whats new!


Best CD I've heard in ages
I never would have thought I would feel compelled to buy a CD because of something I heard on youtube.com, but ever since I heard "Beautiful Destruction" there I knew I had to have a copy for myself. Thank you for this compilation Leesha :)

I found Leesha a year ago on youtube when she was recording original songs at home on piano and guitar. I was impressed then, but now hearing the finished works I am dazzled. Each song is great quality, and refreshing. Her lyrics are powerful, especially in the moving song 'Runyararo' about Zimbabwe. I definitely recommend this album to all!!!

It was worth the wait! \"Penny in the Pocket\" is an album full beautiful and well-sung tunes plus thoughtful written lyrics. Leesha\'s first tune on you tube I listened to was San Diego Morning. I love every single one after that. Thank you Leesha can\'t wait for your next CD.
