Leanne’s Arrived!

July 9, 2010 by  

There are so many LeAnne’s out there, please can the parents give the name a break now? LOL. This particular LeAnne is very pretty though and she’s the real RnB deal.

Deal With It

LeAnne has just dropped two new singles off her upcoming album, “The Journey” and she’d like you to check them out.

Click on the following links to download the songs or visit http://iamleanne.com/press/ :

DEAL WITH IT MP3 (written and produced by Anotino Dixon who’s worked with Toni Braxton & Chris Brown)

I CRY (written and produced by SA’s super producer Alex Faku)

Of the two songs, I CRY is my favourite and maybe it’s because it has a Deborah Cox feel to it but yeah, I’m sold on her sound. Actually, anyone who works with Alexis will always get my vote.

I’d love to know what you think though so holla back!


LeAnne was born to entertain! From her humble beginnings at NSA (National School of the Arts), where she studied Drama and Music, LeAnne always stood out in the crowd. It was in her last years of studying, that she was discovered singing in Rhema Church, where she lead praise and worship. She was quickly signed to an international record label – Creative Kingdom Records USA and began to develop and perfect her talent to sing on a 3-year contract.

During her first year at the label, LeAnne wrote and performed backing vocals and duets with R&B artist’s Loyiso and Danny K, in studio and at sold out concerts.

In 2003 LeAnne also spent time performing in Spain for two months in a musical production that paid tribute to famous and legendary Soul/R&B artists.

She started working on her debut album in April 2005 and finished recording in October, of that year. After a hard long 6 months of working to create an album that describes whom she is and what her music is all about - “Simply Luvlee” was born.

Her single “Got Me Going Crazy” grew to be a national radio and club anthem in South Africa, and was quickly picked up on the Dubai music scene. The same single “Got Me Going Crazy” which was composed by LeAnne, was licensed by Universal Records in Europe where Coca – Cola ordered and released 75, 000 units for a summer campaign.

From the success of her song on radio in Dubai, LeAnne ended up performing as the opening act for Kanye West & Joss Stone at the “Dubai Desert Rhythm Festival”. Locally, the song earned her a title in the South African music industry, were she walked away with the “Best Female R&B Album” award at the Metro FM Awards. She also performed with Loyiso at the “Peoples Concert” In Cape Town, opened up for Snoop Dogg, Pharell Williams, Sean Paul and Mario.

In 2008, LeAnne was support act, at “The Urban Music Festival” in Johannesburg and Cape Town, where she opened for Fat Joe & Akon.

LeAnne has finished her sophomore album that is due for release in May/June 2010.
