Hello! I am a multi-instrumentalist living in San Francisco. I am a trained singer/songwriter keyboardist/vocalist with a good ear for vocal harmonies and keyboard riffs. I also play a mean tambourine. I lead a dark indie electro-pop group, write commercial music, teach piano and voice, and would love to help you bring your song to life.
VOCALS: I can provide your project with main vocals, background vocals and/or harmonies. My alto/soprano voice ranges from airy/pure, to jazzy/sultry, to witchy/whimsical. I am jazz-trained and experienced in rock, pop, electronic, and folk styles.
KEYS: I can provide your project with piano or synthesizer parts. I have a Juno 60 and a Nord Electro as well as a variety of software instruments. I am classically trained on the piano and well-versed in jazz, rock, pop, and electronic styles.
EDITING, VOCAL TUNING: If you need vocals tuned, tracks edited/comped, or instruments time-corrected, I can help! I have a natural but thorough touch to my vocal tuning and have been editing for several years.
SONGWRITING, LYRICS, MUSIC COMPOSITION: I can assist or lead in the songwriting or lyric-writing process, make song arrangements, and give feedback. If you need music to accompany your visual project, I can help! I have done commissioned commercial writing work for Stanford, Curology Skincare, and others and I have both exclusive and non-exclusive pricing tiers for custom music.
OTHER INSTRUMENTS: I can provide tambourine, shaker, or other handheld percussion as well as tenor saxophone, melodica, glockenspiel, ukelele, basic acoustic guitar, and the recorder that I saved from 4th grade (lol).
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

It was great working with Leanne. Good communication and I got what I wanted in the first go. She also took time to provide me with some alternative versions so I had some more material to work with.
Lady Lees has a terrific and unique voice and it was a pleasure working with her. She poured her heart into my project and was prompt and professional--I definitely recommend her services!
This was my 2nd time hiring Lady Lees for a vocal project. Consider me a "repeat customer" ! As usual, she delivered and at that with amazing results past expectations. Even when times get hard during a project, she stays on point with work ethics and professionalism, and makes sure I get what I want. This is hard to find. 5 Star vocalist for sure.
Lady Lees has a amazing voice with a few variations of it as well. So it allows you to pick and choose the exact vibe needed for your particular project. I was impressed and satisfied with her delivery on my project. She is able to see the vision portrayed, put it in perfect key and nail it ! She takes the extra time to get it the way you want it.
Working with Lady Lees was an absolute delight and I highly recommend her services to anyone needing a song writer or vocalist.
For my first vocal track and collaboration via SoundBetter I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. The work was done quickly, professionally and passionately. Communication was also excellent.
Amazing artist! Super easy to work with and brought my project to life. Turned out even better than I expected. Delivered finished project quickly in time for the holidays. Thank you so much!
Excellent and so easy to work with, the quality of vocal I got back for the track was more than I expected. Very professional throughout and delivered on time. I am already planning on more work to send as I start to work on an album. Highly recommended.
I've written a song for my sister's wedding and Leanne has been excellent. She delivered quickly despite being busy, took on board everything I said and did it exactly the way I wanted. Great voice and a lovely person to deal with. Couldn't recommend her highly enough.
Leanne is an accomplished vocalist and musician. We worked together in the studio and she was prepared, professional, friendly and easy to work with. Her melodies, lyrics, and synth parts are enchanting. She is also a solid songwriter and technically savvy. Highly recommended.
I have worked with Leanne in several capacities (live performance, song-writing, production) and she is fantastic! She is fun to work with and very professional. I highly recommend working with her on your next project!
