Arlee Leonard has written some impressive originals, and her voice crackles with life. Deep and woody, she's sensual at the same time that she's playful...Arlee has many talents, and is not afraid to use them. - Jazz Improv
THE VERSATILE ARLEE LEONARD began performing at age six in coffee houses in Detroit with her parents, blues/folk icons DAVID & ROSELYN. In 1991, her multi-racial family toured Germany, France, Holland and Switzerland, and she’s sung with them, led her own groups, and been a guest vocalist for a variety of occasions and events around the world since. Ms. Leonard, raised in California, Michigan and New Orleans, studied and performed in music, theater and dance at Santa Monica High School and the University of California Santa Cruz, while earning a B.A. in Sociology, with honors.
Arlee Leonard is a cool jazz dynamo who leaves audiences
her sultry and sophisticated jazz. If you are wondering about
her technique to
connect with an audience, Leonard explains it this way: I sing
from my heart
and really try to touch people in theirs.
