R&B powerhouse singer/songwriter Leela James first burst onto the scene with her 2006 debut album A Change is Gonna Come, introducing audiences to her soaring sultry vocal dexterity. She quickly garnered nominations for Outstanding New Artist at the NAACP Image Awards and Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist at the 2008 Soul Train Music Awards.
James has gone on to record five subsequent albums including My Soul, which reached #7 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop Albums Chart. Similarly, Fall For You reached the top 15 on the Urban AC charts upon release in 2014. Her song “Don’t Want You Back” reached #1 on the Billboard Adult R&B chart.
She’s earned much critical acclaim for her performance and songwriting skills. What sets Ms. James apart is her fearless approach to making music. She travels the gamut of emotions from self-doubt to self-confidence, and reminds her audience of what it is to be human – to love, to regret and to dream.
Her latest single “Complicated” is a catchy, mid-tempo story that reflects James’ musical journey. See Me, her most recent musical snapshot, was released this past July.
