Kansas City-based singer-songwriter Leah Watts has been singing for as long as she can remember. She first began writing songs when she interned at NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association International) and was exposed to the community of songwriters in Music City, where she wrote her first song, “Million Tiny Little Things”. Leah’s warm pop-country sound and sweet storytelling engage audiences from local coffee shops to rural, homespun festivals. She’s performed the National Anthem at both Sporting KC and Kansas City Royals’ games and has opened for Christian pop-rock group Anthem Lights. While much of her inspiration comes from artists like Carrie Underwood and Danielle Bradbery, she stays true to herself and creates a space with her music that is uniquely her own, commanding audiences with a vocal prowess beyond her years. Her upcoming EP, Finding Home, follows a love story from its euphoric beginnings to the discovery of true self. Leah was born in Germany, but spent her adolescent years in England before moving to Kansas when she was ten. She grew up with a small, close-knit family that encouraged her love for music. The title of her debut EP comes from her and her brother’s experiences moving away from their family and the journey of finding out what home means to them. She loves using music as a tool to help inspire others and enjoys giving back to her community as often as she can. In addition to being a singer-songwriter, she’s the co-founder of Women of the Rise, a new non-profit in Kansas City that aims to support women in the music industry through education, empowerment, and elevation.
