Leah Jai grew up in the small town of Harwinton, Ct. where she started music as a young girl playing the flute with a long time fascination of the guitar. Self taught and inspired by a bad marriage and several unsuccessful relationships, she wrote some angry passionate music as a way of venting her frustration. Fans were entertained and amused by these tongue in cheek lyrics that stay in your head and have you singing them long after listening. Discovered by producer Jacque Williams (singer from The Ohio Players) and with the help of Producer Peter Moshea (Hall and Oats) released her first single Rotten to the Core.
Leah got her “feet wet” recording with musicians from The Ohio Players and being promoted by P.R. people from The Artist formally known as Prince. She then fronted a popular rock band "The Electric Circus" with Bobby T. Torello (drummer from the original Johnny Winter Band) These power players boasted credits from Billy Joel, Grace Slick, Blondie, Black Oak Arkansas, Michael Bolton and Cyndi Lauper just to name a few. Bobby T along with the help of long time friend and producer Vic Steffens (Guitar One Magazine / Ace Frehley ) recorded Leah Jai’s second single “One Night Stand” which was promoted in numerous clubs and music festivals in New England.
Sharpening her stage chops, Leah was encouraged to and finally went solo taking her act
to New York City where she shared the stage with big wigs such as Richard Marx, John Paris, Richie Cannata and members of Tower of Power , The Doobie Brothers to name a few. Leah has since sang the National Anthem on national television for NASCAR and can be seen showcasing in the hottest clubs in NYC. Now writing new hits with power players such as Arno Hecht (Sax Player from The Uptown horns and The Rolling Stones) the hits will keep coming!
