Composer and vocalist Leah Randazzo, 23, is a naturally gifted performer of uncommon charisma who knows how to bring an audience to its feet with her powerful voice and high-energy stage performance. Her original songs, described as jazz-infused R&B and funk, are sophisticated and soulful compositions that belie her young age. Leah’s stunning debut album At the Root, produced by Michael Gregory, has been acclaimed for having a sound that doesn’t pigeonhole itself stylistically; musically it’s as dynamic and fluid as Randazzo’s voice. The Leah Randazzo Group, a septet that includes vocals, rhythm section, and horns, formed in the spring of 2005 and has been touring nationally since. The Leah Randazzo Group was recently named “Best Jazz” for the third year in a row in western Massachusetts and the Pioneer Valley (Valley Advocate). Additionally, the group was honored with the grand prize for music in September 2007 on OurStage.com and received a nomination for “Outstanding Jazz Act” in the 2007 Boston Music Awards.
