** 21 and up ** free show!!
Leah's first full band show in Nashville!

At the age of 9 years old, Leah Burkey met Taylor Swift, and it was then and there that Leah announced that she wanted to be a country music star! And, she meant it!
By the age of 11, Leah began performing at local fairs and events. In 2011 Leah’s first original single “Right Road Now” off of her debut EP, recorded in Nashville, won the WGTY Great Country 107.7FM Radio Stage Challenge in her home town of York, PA. It earned her incredible respect as a young singer/songwriter and an opening spot for Frankie Ballard at the York Interstate Fair Country Music Stage. It was also added to the station’s rotation where it remains to date. The song "I'll See You in the Sky" from that EP, which was written when she was just 12 years old, continues to impact people today at every live show! New fans are increasingly grateful for the message it conveys and comfort and hope it provides to those who have lost loved ones.
In 2012 Leah recorded three brand new original songs in Nashville, and the result is an amazing collection of songs - "Jump", "You & Me Against the World", and "The Game". In May of 2012, she recorded a video for "The Game" which showcases not only her musical talent, but her amazing ability to light up the screen. This video caught the attention of APA Talent Agency and she was officially signed to their roster as of October 7, 2012.
At just 17 years old, Leah had performed in over 400 local and regional shows. She has opened for acts such as Ronnie McDowell, Aaron Tippin, Sammy Kershaw, Joe Diffie, Colt Ford, JoDee Messina and opens for Phil Vassar at various shows.
Leah has performed shows for WFRE Free Country 99.9FM where she opened for Cassadee Pope and The Henningsens. She also opened for Sara Evans for the WGTY Great Country 107.7FM CD Release Party. She has had many Northeastern regional opportunities ranging from allowing her radio play and performing shows, to interviews on air and even co-hosting the morning show with Chachi on WZCY Country 106.7 (currently NASH)!
Leah has had incredible support from major radio stations in her home town as an independent artist, but she is more than ready to make a name for herself in Nashville, TN. Along with her supportive family, Leah has now made the move to Music City! She continues to attend public high school online, but when she is not working on school, you will find her writing regularly with well-respected writers or playing in rounds and showcases in the Nashville Music scene!
Now 18 years old, Leah Burkey has truly already become an accomplished musician, and an incredibly talented pop/country artist. Leah has them captivated as an acoustic solo artist or with her full band! Her infectious smile and crowd pleasing music continue to wow young and old alike!
