My Music


This Precious Life

Leah Kline takes it down to an intimate level with nine original compositions. She sings, speaks, whispers her soulful and comical lyrics close to the microphone. Listeners are reminded of Minnie Ripperton, Jill Scott, Ricky Lee Jones, Gretchen Parlato. The soundscape is the creation of Cord Heineking. There is a neo-jazz flavor, multi-layering of bass grooves, drum beats, guitar solos and vocal harmonies which make for quite an intense listen. To catch it ALL listen with high quality headphones.
