Bio

Leah Senior silences audiences with her other-worldly vocals and unique lyricism. Her breakthrough album Pretty Faces twirls gently in its own form of psych-folk revival. The Melbourne-based artist creates fragile but effortlessly nimble melodies with soaring vocals that call from another time and place.

A chance late-night encounter with King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard saw Leah Senior joining their independent label Flightless. Senior’s distinctive voice featured 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.

Senior’s captivating live performances have seen her supporting international artists including Calexico, Jeff Tweedy, Jessica Pratt, and Bedouine, to name a few. When performing, Senior is joined by her sister Andi and guitarist/pianist Jesse Williams creating a tapestry of ethereal harmonies and jangly 60s guitar tones. Her more recent material is performed with a full band and has a lightness reminiscent of Paul McCartney.

Leah Senior has performed extensively throughout Australia and Europe, playing at major festivals including Golden Plains, Queenscliff Music Festival, OOAM (Switzerland) and more. Early 2019 saw Leah Senior embark on her first headline international tour in support of her most recent single "Graves." She played to full rooms in Spain, Switzerland, Germany, France and the UK.

Leah Senior will be joining King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard for their upcoming tour of America and Canada, to coincide with the release of her new album 'The Passing Scene.'

so lovely to see leah's music up on unearthed and especially when it's this smiley blend. it's like hearing the theme song to that show from the 60s you used to watch with your nan at like 2pm on a sick day from school.

Leah Senior's opened a wormhole to the golden pop sound of the '60s and '70s with this sunny track and it's got me feeling all warm and fuzzy.
