Per her myspace site: Leah West is a Canadian-American Singer-Songwriter who grew up in New Jersey, near New York City. "It is a huge melting pot of culture and it was a great place to grow up and be surrounded by fabulous music and entertainment from all over the world." Leah moved to Canada in 2005 to immerse herself in the vibrant Canadian music scene. She travels extensively, but calls Kelowna, BC, Canada home. Even though her main genre of music is in the Alternative-Indie, Pop-Rock realm, she can't deny roots and influences from all types of music.
I noticed that another friend of mine that I respect added her as a friend, yes as it goes she was already my friend in MySpace because I've gotten to a freewheeling point if you send me an add, I normally just click yes (it was not always like that). At least to compound my stupidity there wasn't a song of hers in my iTunes. So I tried to fix that and buy the following song... yikes another artist that doesn't get it... she's not there but does have some of her music available at http://www.leahwest.com; but not the one I was looking for... so please enjoy an original song of hers called Santa Fe. Someday I'm sure you could buy it somewhere.
