Leah Capelle Hometown Girl Makes Good
by ten took up professional voice lessons by Master instructor Janice Pantazelos, founder and Master Coach of the Chicago Studio of Professional Singing. Soon after, while learning guitar at The North Shore Music Institute, Leah began to perform live around Chicago and Northern Wisconsin at age thirteen. By sixteen, Leah was being booked for paid gigs. Since then Leah has continued performing in a number of well-known venues, including The Double Door, The Metro, The Elbo Room in Chicago; Hotel Café in LA, The Hotel Utah in San Francisco, The Stork Club in Oakland, Shine in Sacramento, and many others in California.
From 2013-2014, Capelle attended Berklee College of Music in Boston where she was a dual major in Professional Music (focus in Songwriting and Performance) and Music Business. She developed a love for the music business in an intro class taught by Professor George Howard (TuneCore). Leah left Berklee on the Dean’s List and moved to the West Coast to work on her music full time.
Leah has been described as a young Stevie Nicks/Joni Mitchell, though her music is uniquely her own. She gains inspiration from the likes of Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Regina Spektor, and her friends and family. As many of her songs are about personal experiences, she accredits all her hard work to those around her.
Leah currently lives in Los Angeles and just finished recording her freshman EP with Grammy winning producer Jeff Bova (Celine Dion, Blondie). Collaborators include Pete DiStefano (Porno for Pyros, Lance Herbstrong), Rob Lewis (Jason Mraz, Mary J Blige), and others. Capelle got off tour of the Bay Area with her live band The What in December 2014, who joined her in Austin during SXSW for four Captiva/SpringBreakATX Showcases in March 2015. Capelle’s new self-titled EP will drop May 26, 2015 through The Orchard. Look for the Official “Would You Know” video produced by award-winning cinematographer Jesse Davey as well.
