Leela James


The diminutive woman with the high-pitched speaking voice is a dynamic, deep-voiced, old-fashioned soul singer, Leela James sings because the music is in her blood. It always has been. Rhythm accompanied her as a child in Compton, CA. Melody is what got her her first major label deal at 20 years old. And now, she's released her sixth studio album, "Did It For Love," in March 2017, a personal magnum opus written with her two children in mind.
