Leigh is a musician and songwriter who furthers the vast unexplored reaches of pedal steel guitar and vocals. Impossible to pigeonhole, her playing is as physical as it is phantom, combining spontaneous compositions with psychedelic folk and industrial-strength progressive rock. With a rare combination of sensitivity and strength, Leigh’s steel mainlines sanctified slide guitar and deforms it using hypnotic tone-implosions, juggling walls of bleeding amp tone with choral vocal constructs and wrenching single note ascensions.
Known for her captivating live performances, Leigh’s songs come into vivid life on stage. She has performed extensively throughout Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Canada, USA and Mexico, playing venues/festivals including Cafe OTO, Moers, Donau Festival, Le Guess Who?, Tectonics, ATP, Supernormal, Supersonic, Tusk Festival, Issue Project Room, Pioneer Works, Tate Britain, Dundee Contemporary Arts, South London Gallery, Colour Out Of Space, iDealFest, Islington Mill, CCA Glasgow, Edition Festival Stockholm, St Johns Sessions, Le Weekend Festival, The Art Institute of Chicago, IMMA and more.
