Teen singer songwriter Lea Marie burst onto the L.A. music scene after being rated the “#1 Pop Demo of 2007” in Music Connection Magazine and featured in the magazine’s prestigious “23rd Annual Directory of Artists and Bands for 2008.” As quoted in the magazine’s review of Lea Marie’s pop demo, “It’s hard to imagine a package that is tighter than this one. In every way, 16 yr old Lea Marie’s music and visual presentation are commercially viable.”
Lea Marie further accelerated her career by becoming a producer and spending much of her time in her own recording studio. She recently has announced September 16, 2008 as the release date for her self-titled debut album. Over the past few years, Lea Marie has composed over 75 original songs on piano and guitar. Her music has grown up with her style and has developed into a unique pop sound inspired all on her own.
