Leah Senior silences audiences with her other-worldly presence and unique lyricism. Her breakthrough album Pretty Faces twirls gently in its own form of psych-folk revival. The Melbourne-based folk artist creates fragile but effortlessly nimble melodies that demonstrate a clarity of thought and studied discipline beyond her years. Her songs evoke the familiar and the peculiar, the poetic and the plain.
Her captivating live performances have seen her supporting international artists including Calexico, Jessica Pratt, Moses Sumney, Julianna Barwick and more. When playing live, Leah is joined by her sister and her partner, creating a tapestry of ethereal harmonies and jangley 60s guitar sounds.
The album Pretty Faces is an exploration of personal liberation acquired through loss and the breaking of expectations on oneself. The songs embody a sense of outsider freedom epitomised in the last track Loser “You’re a loser like me, pay the price for feeling free”.
