Folk diviner. Dream reviver. Music delicately awe-inspiring.
Leah Senior silences audiences with her other-worldly presence and unique lyricism. Her latest album Pretty Faces twirls gently, in it’s own form of psych-folk revival.
Pretty Faces sits proudly in the Flightless Records roster of 2017 and her distinctive voice also features on King Gizzard's apocalyptic album Murder of The Universe, as the omnipresent female narrator.
"Leah Senior is an amazing folk singer, very, very talented, and nothing like King Gizz's music at all. her songs equally terrifying, joyous, sad and exciting. We get chills watching her perform" - King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard.
A chance late night encounter with King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard saw Leah Senior joining their independent label Flightless to release her first album Summer’s On The Ground.
Leah Senior's first album Summer’s On The Ground reveals a haunting and intimate storyteller, Rolling Stone saying “this is insular music, akin to eavesdropping on someone else’s prettily conveyed thoughts”. The album was nominated for the Australian Music Prize as well as Best Folk and Roots Album for the Age Victoria Music Awards.
A folk island in a sea of psychedelia has proven to be the perfect fit for Senior. She joined the Flightless crew for the Gizzfest Tour 2017 and 2018. Pretty Faces was recorded and produced with Gizzard’s own Joey Walker and features Michael Cavanagh on drums.
Leah Senior has performed extensively throughout Australia playing at major festivals including Golden Plains, Queenscliff Music Festival, Bigsound, Waverock, and Fairgrounds and has supported
international artists including Calexico,Jessica Pratt, Moses Sumney, Julianna Barwick and Bedouine.
In support of Leah Senior's latest single Graves, she will be embarking on her first European Tour in Jan/Feb 2019, playing a string of dates in Spain, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, France , Belgium and the UK. She will be returning to Australia to play Riverboats Music Festival and Boogie.
