Biography

“I followed my heart / And look where it got me…”

Bari Leigh couldn’t have written a more appropriate beginning. Self taught as a singer, guitarist, and pianist, she began writing songs at the age of seven—and followed her heart straight to this national debut. With her unique voice and a five-song collection showing a maturity well beyond her years, Bari effortlessly infuses pop with country, rock, funk, blues, soul, and emo to create a journey across musical genres.

Our travels begin with the award-winning “The Sand Will Catch Our Fall,” an instant classic spinning a tale of summer love that could be sung by Taylor Swift or Nelly Furtado (“We’ll see where this goes / For now it’s a mystery / With sand in our toes / We’ll make our own history”). With the help of a little banjo and pedal steel guitar, you’ll feel sand in your boots as you spin on this downtown Nashville beach at sunset.

In bold contrast, the driving Paramore-style rocker “Should’ve Stayed Gone” channels Kelly Clarkson to tell a coming-of-age story about the challenges of breaking away and starting a new life (“Why’d I come back to this scene / When it took all my strength to leave”). The soul-tinged “Strong Enough For Both Of Us” pulls you down off of your chairs and gently settles you into the Memphis blues. Complete with that classic Sun Records guitar sound, this song of love and encouragement is destined for a soundtrack (“You’ve walked alone down every dead end street / You think it’s destiny / But I’ll show you”).
