Describe yourself in 3 words?
Who has made the biggest impact on your life so far, and why?
My family. They are so supportive and they have always believed in me from the start.
How did you get started in the business?
My brother Jake and I used to make beats in our bedroom when I was around 7 years old. The first song we ever made was an EDM pop sounding song called “after party”. I remember after the moment I could never stop.
Who influenced you and why did you choose to make music?
I grew up listening to Christina Aguilera on repeat. I could sing her songs before I could speak and would try to copy her insane vocal rifts, she honestly taught me how to sing.
What is your next goal as a musician?
Going global and selling out stadiums!
Now tell us about your single “Do What I Wanna Do?”
As described in my 3 words, I am very determined. When I want something I want it and I get it and don’t let anything stop me. Although this song was written about a love interest, the title do what I want to do is very reflective of who I am as a person… sometimes it isn’t great because I don’t think ahead and that can have a price, but I am a firm believer in going after what I want and not letting anything stop me. This song, however, was written about a secret relationship I had. Someone was trying to stop me and I wrote it about bringing that relationship to light.
What we can expect of Leah Kate in 2019?
Many live shows and some cool features!
How’s a typical day in your life?
I am super active so like to include a work out into my daily routine always! I usually start out at rumble boxing and then go to the studio! I had a day job up until recently I got fired for a stupid reason… did something impulsive without thinking, which I hope is a blessing in disguise because I can go in on music full force for now.
