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

"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

'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 rotation on Double J, Triple J Unearthed, 2sfer fm, playlisted on RAGE and being aired across BBC - Introducing (UK), #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.

The first single Cherry Cola is a glimpse of what we can expect from Leanne’s new direction. The track, produced by Konstantin Kersting, (Mallrat, The Belligerents, Tia Gostelow), epitomises Leanne’s leap in a new direction – one she calls exhilarating – and reveals her best work yet.

I love the layering in this. It's unpredictable without being jarring, and draws you in from the get-go.

This could be weird to read but I really love the way your voice wraps around vowels. The production on this is deluxe too, simmering reverb that gives the song a sun dappled quality and works with the build. Beautiful stuff.

That simple guitar picking at the start draws you straight in. The atmosphere Tennant has created through the song - with the stomping rhythm and the layers of voices - brings out such an ominous mood.
