Rising country star talks about her musical journey.
Canadian country artist Leanne Pearson dropped by Epiphone Headquarters this week. Leanne was in town writing for an upcoming project so we jumped at the opportunity to sit down with her and talk about her musical journey. And what a journey it has been for this 25 year old country-rocker. She started performing at the age of 4 and soon thereafter knew that music was her calling. Fast forward a few years and after graduating from the University of Manitoba with a Psychology Degree (and making the Dean's Honour List), Leanne found herself on a skyrocketing path with two singles off of her debut album, Serendipity: "Get Outta My Heart" and "The Only Thing." Both are in heavy rotation on Country Music Television (CMT).
Here's what others are saying about Leanne Pearson:
"One of Canada's hottest up-and-coming country performers. Leanne Pearson loves to entertain & it shows! Irresistible FUN!" - Leanne Cater, QX104, Winnipeg Manitoba’s CFQX
“There’s a thing about Leanne, it’s the ‘get it’ factor. She understands who she is, is confident in who she is and is not trying to be somebody else. Her voice is ridiculously good and she has this sweetness about her.” - Casey Clarke, CMT
“I have not seen anyone else in country music that can put on a live concert like Leanne, pull it off with great vocals and maintain so much energy the entire show. 'Up-tempo' and 'energetic' are words that only mildly explain Leanne’s stage presence." - Aaron Pritchett, Canadian Country Music Hit Maker
“Leanne is on the cutting edge of today’s country music. This easy going, yet feisty singer, has released another hot new track that begs to be heard.” - Bruce Leperre, Dauphin Manitoba’s CKDM
“Leanne comes across as such a level-headed kid, has a great voice, a great smile... I think we just may see a lot more of her.” - Joel Stewart, CMT
