Within the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Sandy Hook, KY, came rising singer/songwriter Leah Blevins. With hints of Emmylou Harris and Stevie Nicks, Leah’s country, bluesy style is expressed and felt through song as she captivates music listeners with her haunting voice and touching lyrics.
Growing up in Sandy Hook, Leah first found music singing in a Southern Baptist church with her sisters. She later left the Sunday-morning rafters for Saturday-night stages, cutting her teeth fronting a country cover band. Blevins’ original music career began in a college band that eventually brought her to Nashville. That band broke up six months later, but Leah found herself wrapped up in Nashville’s writing scene. At a local writer’s round, Blevins’ blew away Ken Coomer, the drummer for Wilco – and he offered to produce her first EP, which featured her debut single, “Runnin’.” That EP beget Blevins opening slots for the likes of the Marcus King Band, Carbon Leaf and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Blevins followed her debut with “Walk Home,” featuring “God, Help Me.” Her latest EP sparked a series of write-ups, including spots in NPR and American Songwriter, and spots on several Spotify playlists, amassing over 300,000 plays since its release on May 25th, 2018. Due to the success of her sophomore EP, Blevins landed on tour with Amanda Shires and has opened for more household names, like John Oates and Elliot Root.
Blevins is currently writing for her first full length.
