Blending rock, folk, Celtic, bluegrass and Americana traditions into a high-energy style the group calls ether-electrified porch music, the Virginia quintet’s poetic songs are brought to life with acoustic & electric guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bass, drums, cello, banjo, penny whistle, pedal steel, accordion and rich vocal harmony.

Carbon Leaf writes, records and produces it’s music independently from their studio in Richmond, VA, and has performed over 2,400 lives shows across 17 albums in their long career.

The group’s independent music and spirit continue to resonate with its fans.
Leah Blevins
Leah Blevins
From the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains came rising Nashville singer/songwriter Leah Blevins. Being born and raised in a musical family, music has always played a significant role in Leah’s life. While in her hometown of Sandy Hook, KY, she discovered her passion for expressing words, stories and life experiences through song. Her carefully crafted songwriting ability and smooth, soulful voice genuinely resonated with her audience. After days and nights of dreaming in Kentucky, Leah decided to pack up and make the move to Nashville three years ago.

Heavily influenced by church hymns and the great country and rock leading ladies such as Emmylou Harris, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Stevie Nicks, Janis Joplin, Leah’s distinct country bluesy style differentiates her from the ordinary singer/songwriter in Nashville. Her debut EP Runnin’, produced by Ken Coomer and released in 2015 introduced Leah to the world and captivated listeners with her rich voice and touching lyrics.

After Runnin’ was released, the world has taken to the sweet, soulful and intelligent Leah Blevins quite fondly. She has since been featured on Acme Radio Live, landed a publishing deal with BandWagon Red, toured around the south and had the honor of playing at multiple festivals such as The Revival Festival, Poppy Mountain Bluegrass Festival and Athens of the South Festival. True to her giving nature, Leah has also made sure to share her talents with those in need. Leah has given her time and efforts to cancer patients at charity benefits as well as hospitals in Mexico for stage four cancer patients.

Eager to share the new phase in her music, Leah has been hard at work preparing songs for her sophomore EP. Consistent with her EP Runnin’, the same leading ladies’ influences will be felt along with newer artists such as Dawes, Ryan Adams and Gillian Welch. The new project is due to release in 2017.
