Surrounded by a musical family, Leanne was encouraged to entertain from an early age. Inspired by singers like Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Barbra Streisand and Linda Ronstadt Leanne’s performed on local TV networks, in showcase events, radio commercials, and with a variety of bands around the Lower Mainland. Her fun-loving appeal and ability to connect with any audience compliments her soulful, dynamic powerhouse vocals. She is a natural talent who continues to fuel her passion as a lead vocalist in many projects including fronting her own band “Swayed”. Leanne’s thrilled to be a “Ryzette”, one of Riley’s backup singers, in his Flashback to Motown Band.
