Leah Souza

Boston based jazz vocalist Leah Souza is an experienced performer and appears regularly with her quintet, quartet & trio at jazz venues throughout Boston and New England. She has been described as having “one of the most enticing new voices in contemporary jazz.” She performs her stylish interpretations of jazz at festivals, fairs, concerts, upscale restaurants, hotel lounges and jazz clubs. Leah brings together the influences of Jazz, Blues & R&B in her own unique style. Her interpretation of Horace Silver's “Song For My Father” was critically acclaimed and has received airplay on many radio stations across the country including stations in California, New York, New Jersey, Florida and Massachusetts. The song featuring Leah on vocals was recorded on Johnny Souza's “Meet Me in the City” CD featuring Johnny Souza, Ray Santisi, Barry Smith and Gene Roma. She is currently in the studio recording material for her own debut CD which features Michael Shea on piano, David Landoni on bass, Johnny Souza on trumpet and Rick Klane on drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
