Leah Harris is a singer-songwriter, pianist, and entrepreneur from Windsor, Ontario, Canada, just outside of Detroit, MI. Not too long ago, she released a classy neo-soul single, entitled, “Shine,” recorded in Nashville and produced by Sal Oliveri, best known for his work on GRAMMY-nominated tracks by P!NK and Chris Stapleton.
Leah Harris – “Shine” single
“I’m not sure exactly when it was that my soul began to put walls up. Must have had reasons at the time. But yesterday, I looked at my reflection and couldn’t help but feel that the face there looking back just wasn’t mine. So, I grab my keys and I walk into the city streets. I’ll blindly follow my feet into the night ‘til I shine.” – lyrics
Leah Harris wrote “Shine” with inspiration from the unique creative journeys undertaken by artists and entrepreneurs. The encouraging tune is flavored with neo-soul, Adult Contemporary, and ‘90s R&B elements. Leah sings with great passion, “We all grow up and we’re told to be what everyone around us all expects of us. Maybe, it’s time to shine, for you to shine. You know it’s not too late for you to shine.”
An appealing music video for “Shine” will be released in July 2022 featuring muralist, Andaluz the Artist, who will be spray-painting an old piano. Also, the video will feature lead Broadway performer, Olutayo, who will be dancing a self-choreographed routine.
“I know that I’m not the only one who’s come so close to giving up.”
“It takes determination to wake up every morning and pursue a nontraditional dream. I wrote this song as a reminder that, even though it can be a tough road, the unique work of creatives is impactful and deeply appreciated.” – Leah Harris stated
Leah Harris has been featured on several magazine covers in the Detroit area. Not too long ago, she was recognized for her contributions to the Stockholm, Dublin, and Helsinki music scenes, where she lived for nearly a decade before moving to New York City.
“It’s not as simple as it sounds to balance everything around and somehow come out feeling free.”
“A shining, glimmering piece. Leah Harris soars on this terrific, feel-good number. She will get you singing and moving along. This one has a truly soulful vibe!” – stated Kabir Sehgal, six-time GRAMMY-winning producer and 17-time New York Times bestselling author
Leah Harris draws inspiration from the unique sounds of D’Angelo, Amy Winehouse, Prince, and Alicia Keys. Her original songs have been featured on Spotify’s Discover Weekly and over 800 other playlists. Also, her music has been publicly endorsed by Montell Jordan, Kabir Sehgal, and Valerie Simpson.
