Leiahdorus is a synthpop band on the independent A Different Drum label.
Leiahdorus was created by Jason Smith in 1998. When Joey Belville of The Echoing Green acquired a demonstration tape, he took Jason under his wing and produced a demo with him.
In 2000 this three track demo found its way to Todd Durrant of the synthpop label A Different Drum. This resulted in Jason being signed to an album deal. Ashes, Ashes was then released in September 2001, which has created a strong following of fans.
Jason has played shows in Albuquerque and California, and a world-wide fan base has grown using the Internet as a form of marketing and distribution for the debut album.
In 2003, Darla Van Winkle joined the band, followed shortly by the return of former member Fox Fletcher in 2004.
