Kerry Leigh

Story

“For a lot of self-described folk/Americana/country/blues artists the hodgepodge of genres translates into crusty sounding vocals and crunchy-style rhythms. Kerry Leigh's crysatilline vocal delivery and meticulous-yet easygoing instrumentation is a refreshing change of pace. Leigh's catalog varies from loose-hipped ramblers to balladic ruminations on love and loss to gentle rockers that evole the Summer of Love with a whiff of protest (listen to the Song 'Anger Grows' and you'll see what we mean).” Zach Hagadone - Sandpoint Reader
