Bio

"A bit MØ, a little bit of BANKS, and the musical answer to what would have been if Lana Del Rey had been a bit happier" - TONSPION, - GERMANY

“Bring It All back is a display of astute, mature pop music, delivered with grace and emotion.” - CLASH MAGAZINE, London

'The track has the energy of simmering anger mixed with the sweet sound of forgiveness and that’s not an easy blend to pull off in a song. ' - LISTEN WITH MONGER, UK.

Leanne is the 2018 Carol Lloyd Award recipient, and 2 x time Qld Music winner.

Her new singles Bring It All Back and Cherry Cola are currently receiving support across BBC Radio (UK), and Bring It All Back just being added to British Airways in-flight entertainment. She is currently receiving rotation on Double J, RAGE, including 'Wild One' pick, #1 on Amazing Radio Charlie Ashcroft (UK), and featured in premieres across New York, France, Germany and London. Her new album is set to be released early 2020.

In July 2017 Tennant was selected by Kram (drummer and vocalist for multi Aria Award winning Australian rockers Spiderbait) as the QLD State representative for the APRA/AMCOS supported national song writing mentorship project, 'One Eye on The Stranger'. The project saw Tennant write and workshop a new song under the mentorship of Kram before being invited to join him on the stage with fellow collaborators from each state to perform to packed out Tasmanian audiences as part of winter music festival, Festival of Voices at Hobart’s City Hall.

The new singles are a glimpse of what we can expect from Leanne’s new direction. The tracks, are produced by Konstantin Kersting, (Mallrat, Tones and I, Tia Gostelow), Yanto Browning (Amy Shark, The Belligerents) and the upcoming release, a Co-production with Yanto and Kram (Spiderbait). The tracks epitomises Leanne’s leap in a new direction – one she calls exhilarating – and reveals her best work yet.  

"Right from the haunting acapella intro, Leanne Tennant's commandingly haunting vocals latch on. "Gentle Annie" — teasingly edges towards complete collapse or euphoric explosion as Tennant slowly succumbs to the soulful darkness of her late-night world." - ROLLING STONE

'Listening to “Bring It All Back” is a testament to how piercingly clear Tennant’s songwriting intent is. The vocals flow forth from the mix with all the clarity and warmth of a sunbeam after a rainstorm.' - ATWOOD MAGAZINE, USA

Got that pace and movie chorus that just makes me want to blast this and drive a scenic coastal road!

it's tender, patient pop that has these little momentum bursts that works so nicely.
