Rise of an Underdog

Reading based singer, Leah Tolksdorf has shaken the popR&B pop scene with her unfiltered storytelling that feels confessional. Her authenticity is reflected in her relatable lyrics about her life, love and modern relationships. Her influences include Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse and Emeli Sandé. 

Leah’s passion for music started by posting covers on Instagram, before launching her first EP on Soundcloud in 2018 “UNTITLED”. Soon after she began performing at pubs and her energetic and charismatic stage presence has now captivated audiences at Readipop, Sketch and her release show at The Loft. Notably her biggest achievement yet; recording at Abbey Roads Studio’s, with her single “Enough Is Enough”.
