Leigh Jones

Leigh Jones has had the itch to write songs most of her life, but it wasn't until she received a ukulele as a Christmas gift in 2009 that she, at long last, began composing in earnest. Leigh grew up in North Carolina, performing in local theatre whenever she had the chance, and eventually went on to earn a Drama degree from NYU's Tisch School. Her music evokes the spirit of the city in which she has lived all her adult life, while allowing her southern roots to shine gloriously through. Drawing inspiration from such artists as Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, Neko Case, and so many of her own peers, Leigh performs with the theatricality of a trained actor while her simultaneously sweet and dynamic melodies capture the soulfulness that is at the core of her songwriting.
